So an old friend has took the plunge and bought 2 x 4k sticks. Both wireless 1 up 1 downstairs. I tried to persuade him not to as he struggles tie his f##kin laces nevermind run a stick!! as I knew he'd be forever on the phone.
So he got it running OK till the downstairs stick says,
Connected but with issues

or words to that effect. I called his house and I tried a few things forget network all that and it still connects to his WiFi but with problems but the upstairs is fine !!.

I reluctantly brought the stick home with me and tried it at mine (forgot all networks first) and its working fine.
I've never had a Sly router but the difference with my Virmin router is, I can log into separate wifi's both 2.4g and 5g show up in networks were as he only has the one wifi address option to linto nto even though his router settings say they are both broadcasting .

Is there anything in his Sly router settings I need to change or do ?. Its just strange that 1 stick works upstairs ok while the other downstairs 2ft from the router struggles to connect

That’s weird I don’t think that’s a shield security problem I miss read this looks like a firestick issue try factory reset but if work ok at your address it should connect. Unless there is interference from something! I’d phone sly up see whats the issue is

For what its worth, Ive got 2 firesticks running, one downstairs, one upstairs. Both connected wirelessly to the Sly router and both work fine. When I set them up, I didnt have to do anything to the router, just connected, no probs.

Sly shield is an account nothing to do with router settings and can be found via you account on sly.
I have 3 firesticks running all on WiFi with sly isp I usually get that connected but with problems usually a hard reboot of router should sort it

I'm going to factory reset load his server back on it and give it him back. I knew this was going to happen.
If it doesn't work I'll do the decent thing and say I'm quarantined, this way I'll get at least 2 weeks grace and hopefully he'll ask someone else

Another friend who has a stick is having the same issue, connected with problems but this m8's on Veergin. Both of my m8's sticks were working till recently and and it's ironic that both started playing up near the same time. He also has 2 sticks but unlike my first m8 he's know's how to swap the sticks tv to tv. I asked my first m8, "If you happened to put your shoes on the wrong feet would you carry on to work regardless ?",

his reply
"might"
