I am a very interesting problem with four photons.
In a residence I have four photons on the first floor. The router/wifi is one floor down.
The first floor has three garage doors each with a photon. Each of these three photons have an external Antenna and the code initializes the Antenna as:
Now the fourth photon is about 20 feet away in the home office. The fourth photon has only the internal Antenna.
Here is the issue.
When the fourth photon in the office is powered up. One of the three garage door photons will immediately go off line and stay offline. The office photon will stay on line.
Unfortunately, at this home I cannot get access in the router since it’s a router modem using a 5GHz link. Outside the home an antenna is mounted and the ISP connects to this home. Moving the router to upstairs would require the ISP to come on site and relocate. Since it’s winter this work has to be done with considerable snow on the ground and roof.
Now the three photons in the garage are very stable and stay on line until the office photon is powered up. I am not at the location so I can’t run a NetSpot program to see how crowed the WiFi b/g channel is. I don’t think other WiFi networks are the issue since the closest hour is several hundred feet away.
The RSSI for the three Photons in the garage are
D58 -60 RSSI / Firmware 0.8.rc2 ( closest to the router and the home office)
D57 -67 RSSI / Firmware 0.8.rc1 ( between D58 & D56 D57 goes off line)
D56 -65 RSSI / Firmware 0.8.rc1 ( longest distance to the router)
For the office particle I don’t have an RSSi read. Office Particle Firmware is 0.7.0.
So what is the cause and how can I get Door57 to come online and stay on line?
