I have being trying to replicate laurences' issue but cant seem to do it. Run multiple extenters for long periods of time.60+ days and even tried it at home with my Vodafone TV box. It still is going strong.
Only way to check is to do a packet capture to see which side is giving the Deauth, but that requires a special setup.
sorry Laurence your issue i cant seem to replicate. Unless you want to swap yours with another pair and i can test it out for you if I can replicate it here in the Device Lab. This will tell us if the issue is just local ( interference of some sort which is getting it to deauth.) or something we need to look in.
Tested about 8 Extenders now (4 pairs) no joy . Got some running on my desk even now.
