Hello, I have a problem after the updates NWA90AX
why everyone began to be disconnected from wifi.
What could be the problem? The latest updates have been delivered, this was not the case before.

    Hi @itcrt ,

    Upon analyzing your event log, we discovered key handshake failures and roaming symptoms associated with poor signal strength, ranging from -86dBm to -76dBm.

    We recommend positioning client devices closer to the Access Point (AP) or adjusting the deployment of your AP to ensure a better signal. For optimal performance, the client connection signal should ideally be at -70dBm or above.

    Hi, I have the same issue with my NWA55AXE unit. I've followed the troubleshooting guide and it's not helped. I've enabled Zyxel as an administrator for my account, but I can't find anywhere to send you the name of my organisation, could you please advise how to do that?

    Please click to my account > Message to provide us with detailed information. We would appreciate it if you could include the following:

    • Organization/ site name
    • Whether the issue affects all clients or specific clients, along with the client's MAC address.
    • Whether the issue is present on all SSIDs or specific SSIDs, and the name of the affected SSID.
    • The AP where the issue is occurring.
    • The time the client has been connected to the problematic AP.
