Hello, recently upgraded to a mesh router system (Tp-Link Deco) and have been having some problems. I have my work laptop and PS4 hardwired through an unmanaged 5 port tp- link switch to the primary deco unit, which is hardwired to the ISP provided cable modem. Cables are in good shape (although I have some new cat6a on the way to swap in) and router firmware is updated. Since switching to the deco, I occasionally lose connection to the router (shown as a momentary loss of connection when I run a ping of the router). This results in me losing connection to my work vpn or any online games I am playing on the PS4. Does anyone have any ideas for troubleshooting? The networking stuff is beyond me. Thanks in advance!
