All my Eufy Smart Plug Mini devices (4) regularly lose connection to my home network, rendering them unusable and defeating the purpose of having them installed. When this happens (seems daily with one of more of my smart plug devices) I am required to delete the affected smart plug from my Eufy app and establish a new connection.
Many times, establishing the new connection does not always work, as the configuration process times out. This happens even though the smart plug, smartphone (with app) and Wi-Fi extender are in the same room. I often need to repeat the configuration process several times, sometimes rebooting the Wi-Fi extender, until a connection is finally established.
Unfortunately, the connections get dropped at some point later (could be a few days later), and I need to know how I can make the connections more persistent and reliable.
Here are the devices used in my network:
- AT&T Uverse 5268AC Modem
- Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit WiFi Router (Dual band 2.4 and 5 GHz)
- Netgear WN3500RP Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender (for the Linksys router)
- Eufy Smart Plug Mini (4 in use)
The AT&T modem also broadcasts Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz), but I installed the Linksys to support VPN.
The Wi-Fi range extender supports both 2.4 and 5GHz, providing a signal to the side of my home where the smart plugs are located.
All smart plugs are configured to connect to the 2.4 GHz band of the Wi-Fi range extender.
Any ideas or thoughts on how I can establish reliable and steady network connections for the smart plugs would be appreciated.
