Duet Wi-Fi and Mesh Systems
I have been accessing DWC via Wi-Fi for some time without any problems. I recently installed a TP Link Deco E4 mesh system that works on both 2.4g & 5g to improve coverage throughout the house and it is working well.
I then disabled the Wi-Fi on the router and tried to set up the Duet on the new network using YAT. There where no apparent problems with the set up but DWC would not open despite everything looking ok in the router setup, including reserved IP and all other devices worked OK.
I tried forgetting all previous networks and selecting the IP manually and despite YAT returning the right connection details, nothing made any difference.
I have reinstated the 2.4g Wi-Fi on my router and reconfigured the Duet Wi-Fi and all is working again.
Although the current system works, I would like to have just the mesh running if I can so as to reduce chances of interference etc.
Is there a known issue with the Duet and mesh systems?
Duet 2 WiFi 3.2.2
Wifi Server 1.25
I would be grateful for any input.

@jmshep I use a google mesh system.
You can't disable 2.4ghz though as the ESP8266 does not work with 5ghz

@jmshep If the m122 output (or the output from m552) shows that your board as an ip address then it may be that your mesh system is not allowing clients on the mesh to see each other (this is a common security setting) so you may want to check for that.
@jay_s_uk Thanks for your reply. The Deco , and I assume most other mesh systems, work on both 2.4 and 5g and my devices that are only 2.4g work fine when connected to the mesh when the router wi-fi is disabled.
@gloomyandy Yes M122 does show an IP. So that is worth looking into but so far I cant find those settings on the Deco, I can bar devices but not specifically give them permission to join the mesh. I will keep looking.
