Multy x 2,4 signal drops constantly, and has a 'shadow' hidden SSID with almost same macadress
I have a setup with 4 multy x, and have gotten all placed to give a good backhaul. I run them i bridge-mode.
My wifi-klients keep having troubles with the 2,4 frequency - partly because the 2,4 signal drops or 'undulates' and partly because they loose internetconnection. It is highly annoying, and constant.
When i scan my wifi with an app, i get a clear signal on the 5 mhz band, with my SSID from several distances (on the same channel), and a distanct hidden SSID on a far different channel, with the same distances and Mac-adresses close to the ones on my SSID - i would expect that to be the backhaul signal.
On the 2,4 mhz i get my ssid on one channel, with different distances, as on the 5mhz band, BUT i constantly get a hidden SSID with the same distances on the same channel - masking my SSID/signal out - and periodically (every 2 minuttes) both drop completely off, and then 10 seconds later, start up 'figthing' for the channel. It seems like the Multy somehow run a 'shadow' signal on the samme 2,4 mhz channel as the SSID i want.
I have succesfully forced the multy to change channel, but the 'shadow' moves alond with it, and the drops continues.
I can not make my clients work on the 5mhz band, so what can i do (besides bin the multys)
