Those with an IC705 and mesh networks

for you I have a question.

  • How many access points does the 705 see at the same time in your mesh network?
  • how many are connected at the same time?
  • if you move the 705 across the building and switch over to a different access point in the
    same mesh, does wfview keep running?
  • does the loss stay low or does it go up fast ?

My internal icom conns reported:

“the operation of IC-705 on the mesh network is not guaranteed.
Please use it on normal APs.”

I have an eero 6 pro w 4 AP nodes
As far as I know you only see the network name as one entry on the 705 ( or other devices)
On the eero admin app - you can see which AP is connected to your device ( the 705)
So you are only connected to one

I have not tried walking around with it

Hi roeland,
i am using a AVM fritzbox and an AVM repeater in mesh topology, the ic-507 seems to be connected two times to the SSID (two lines in the settings of the ic-705. That wifi setup gave me some problems (long ping times and interrupted connections). As altenative, I setup a raspbery pi 3 as wifi access point, located only some inches away from the ic-705, and my Macbook is connected to this access point as well. That seems to be the most promising setup, although still not working that stable.

Marc,

the reason why I asked if it were connected single or multiple times… is that some mesh networks shows
multiple connected…

I have seen for instance four connected ones. I could take it to work and see as we have a large mesh network there.

Peter,

with AVM fritz and repeaters I also have seen mesh issues with the 705.

I’ve a TP-link deco Mesh network, 3 AP’s and a seperate wifi listing for each one appear’s in my ic-705, I can pick any one of 'em and it’ll connect and roam’s between them without issue’s. My rig does not connect to all available AP’s at once, that’d be overkill. I do have custom DNS but that shouldn’t matter. I feel for those having problem’s. - Bryan, K1BQY

Bryan,

the difference is that on some mesh networks, it not only shows all mesh members but in fact connect them too at the same time. For instance – my 705 shows currently three (!) connected members.

and if you want to confuse the 705…

n the case of mesh Wi-Fi, it is possible that UDP cannot communicate normally (delay, etc.).
This is mainly
It is affected by the performance and placement method of the mesh Wi-Fi router.
