I’ve been using my Garadget for a few years with no major issues, but recently I’ve started having connectivity issues.
I’ve been monitoring it with Nagios, just doing a ping test, and there are frequently periods where it doesn’t respond.
I thought the wifi signal may be too weak, but it says it has a “good” connection when it’s online. It currently says the signal quality is -67dB.
I’ve got the MQTT firmware on it and that’s how I mostly control it. I’ve also noticed that it sometimes doesn’t respond to MQTT commands, even when it is pingable. If I subscribe to the broker, I can see the commands appearing as expected, so I can’t see any reason why the Garadget wouldn’t respond.
I’m therefore wondering if it disconnecting from the wifi, and not being pingable, is a symptom of something else and not the actual cause.
Has anyone had any similar issues?
The firmware is 1.2.1 and the system is 1.0.1.
