I am struggling big time with Wi-Fi Connecticut to my Netatmo weather station. When using the «old» Wi-Fi it was stable, but now with mesh it disconnects from Wi-Fi constantly ? 

Also maybe worth to mention that I’m struggling with Spotify Connect as well, where some hardware just doesn’t show up in the «devices» list.

Any suggestions?

    Where do you place the Netatmo? Is it far from Multy?
    You can move the Netatmo close to the Multy U, and make sure that the distance won't an issue of the disconnection.
    Or you can test the signal by standing near the Netatmo with your smartphone.

    I've placed it just a meter away and it still drops out... :|

    Seems like there is some kind of WiFi incompatibility between Netatmo and Multy...

    To clarify the issue, here are some questions that need your response.
    1. What is your network topology?
    2. Can you describe more details about your issue?
    3. Is your issue related to Netatmo weather station?
    4. Are your devices using Multy U? 
    5. Where are your multy and the weather station located in your environment, can you draw a picture of it?
    6. What color are your Root Multy and Extender Multy when the issue happened?

    I am having the same problem. Replaced my old T-Link gateway which had common SSID for 2.4 and 5 GHz and “smart band steering” with 3 x Multy U.  Upgraded Multy to latest firmware. Using bridge mode since I have an advanced router. 

    Config:
    Multy 1 - main, connected to router 
    Multy 2 - connected only to Multy 1. App reports “perfect position”
    Multy 3 - connected only to Multy 1. App reports “perfect position”

    If I unplug Multy 3 and move almost out of the house, I will be in a position where only 2.4 GHz is available. In this position, Netatmo works fine and receive and IP from the DCHP server in the router. The Netatmo unit connects to the Internet and all is fine.  If I move the Netatmo in a position with both 2.4 and 5 GHz, it does not connect to the WiFi at all.

    The color on all of the Multy U is “normal” (bluish with red elements, maybe pink-ish). Everything else is working ok. 


    Please assist.

    Does this issue only happen on the weather station?
    I think you can contact Netatmo support about this issue too.

    Maybe you can try to separate the 2.4G and 5G SSID on the Multy, will that stable the connection issue on the weather station?
  • I have contacted Netatmo as well. But separating 2.4 and 5 GHz is not an option because that will disable true mesh.

    I'm not sure if it helps, but i found that the wifi connection on Netatmo station may have some problems if there are multiple wifi with the same SSID in the environment.

    I have this same problem. Has someone figured it out? I have separated 2.4 and 5 g, but that didn't help.
