Mesh after Upgrade to 9.8

New Contributor
I have the following problem. After upgrading a ZD 1106 FW 9.8, I have only sporadic contact with the mesh AP. What can you do here?

Troubleshoot the client connectivity. Collect an AP support info when the client is
having connection problems. Look at the client statistics (RSSI, PER) to help
determine if it is client distance from the AP (low RSSI) or RF interference (PER)
that might cause dropped packets.

If your question is about two APs staying meshed together, you need to look at the
ZD debug info file, using the new and improved Log Analyzer on the front page of
our Support Portal, which will illustrate the Root and Mesh APs.

Clicking on the AP circle will allow you to look deeper into the AP data, and the
Mesh Info tab, will list what other APs at what signal strength each mesh AP can
see other APs. You need RSSI of 25 or better to maintain mesh between APs.
