    Has anyone had trouble connecting the b hyve to a mesh style wifi system? I had some dead spots in my house and upgraded to an Orbi mesh style router kit. Now my b hyve will not connect and I’m told there may be an issue with these type of router networks. These are becoming increasingly common. Just wondering if anyone has had success or the same issue? I’ve tried resetting and all of the normal steps too. Thanks.

    Swapped from Apple wifi to Linksys mesh system about a month ago. No issues

    Never had an issue with my Google mesh. I don’t know about Orbi, but I have seen some IoT devices unable to use 5GHz networks… I wonder if B-hyve has that limit. If so, maybe there’s a way to have Orbi broadcast at 2.5Ghz.

    Ok, thank you for the suggestion.

    Mesh WiFi systems, in an effort to improve the performance of what is a fundamentally flawed design concept (they’re really no more than WiFi repeaters) often employ dynamic filtering to try to remove “unnecessary” traffic. This dynamic filtering often interferes with network discovery protocols.

    I have my B-Hyve connected to my Orbi mesh network and have had no problems with the connection.

    I had my B-hyve connected to an Orbi mesh and the only trouble I had was that my Orbi liked to use channel 13 and this channel is unreachable for B-hyve. Telling Orbi to use only channels 1 to 11 or fixing it to a sigle channel in this range solved it.
