Wired ethernet FTW! Damn, that's some sh*t. Maybe some lead wallpaper in the laundry room, to include the inside of the door? Twisted Evil

We are getting to the point when there is no option to buy a home appliance without smart home junk.

IoT phone home until you open it up yourself and attack with a soldering iron.

Saw an advertisement the other day for a car with Alexa installed...

Here's hoping for an LG resistant firmware binary. https://svn.dd-wrt.com/changeset/44337

The secondary vehicle is "smart" enough. Drive by wire, save and except for steering, brakes, and drivetrain. Everything else is electronic sensors. My Tacoma is one of the last model years with an actual throttle cable. I'd rather risk it sticking wide open or breaking than having SkyNet decide my fate Laughing

Anyhow, yes, here's hoping...

FOUND THE CULPRIT....


802.11r

had it enabled on both radios...

My best guess at the whole mess...

despite the wifi being off on the appliance, when it is first turned on the default is that it starts broadcasting as an AP and then turns off in 3-10 seconds... That's just long enough to disrupt the wifi environment and cause devices to want to jump ship...

turning off 802.11r made the issue go away.

I'll keep my eye's peeled on the status window and will reply back if this gremlin comes back, but I don't think it will.

I wanted to think turning off 802.11r would help, like it first appeared to....nope...

New experiment, bumping up the beacon intervals... 5ghz 449 and 2.4 at 523 DTIM=2 for both...

we'll see how this one runs for 24hrs.
