Thanks all for your comments. On my side I cannot disable ipv6 in my current router’s firmware. I could of course buy a second one which I would use only as AP and switch off ipv6 but why?
At the end the cause is not really known so I decided to do some scenario testing as following:
A brand new Argon and Xenon reinstalled with the hybrid-0.8.0-rc.25 , the Argon already set with the wifi credentials, the xenon already paired with the Argon (all done through the Particle iOS app)
- Start the Argon first, wait until it breath cyan (take only 2-3s max), then turn on the Xenon: it takes a couple of blinking green, then blinking cyan and then breathing cyan. This remains ok for 30s to 60s then it turned to the infinite loop of blinking green and every mn or so red blinking and restart … then again blinking green fast, etc…
Start the Argon and the Xenon at the exact same time: Argon will breathes cyan quickly, then couple of seconds later the Xenon also breathes cyan. I tested for 5mn, and the Xenon did not disconnect.
Start the Xenon first, then the Argon. The Xenon blinks green for ever until the Argon is switched on, then short after the Argon it breathes cyan too.
In any scenario, when the Xenon was in aBlinking Green stated, just pressing the reset button on the Argon returned everything to normal for the paired Xenon (after Argon get cloud connected, the Xenon will do too)
But after a short period 30 to 60s, the Xenon will then enter a weird mode, going from cloud connected to blinking red, then restarting and then the green blinking mode for ever …
…until the Argon is reset, then when the Argon gets cloud connected, then the Xenon enters a new kind of 2-3 cycles, going from blinking rapidly cyan to blinking white/orange(red?) … this for 2 or 3 cycles, then blinking red, then restart and then connecting to cloud again (breathing cyan)
Finally his seems to be somehow “stable” … at least for 3 minutes, then blinking red, restart, and connecting to cloud, then same thing for a couple of time every 2-3 minutes… but after a few cycles it will loose it again and get back to blinking green (fast) until I reset the Argon …
Ok, long text, lots of cases. I hope this helps Particle to figure out what is going on. If you need more info, more test (could even make videos if that helps), just let me know.
But I need this to work! My setup with Argon plus multiple Xenon was suppose to be the foundation for my new eating system in house … and here in winter with down to -20 deg Celcius, it needs to work and be reliable!
Thanks for your effort on fixing that issue!
