I’m sick and tired of issues with lifx!
The packet capture is why I know there is and issue wi lifx when renewing the lease.
Having the light bulb right beside the router… do you really know anything?
If you must know, I own a 1650 sq ft bungalow
Two access points are on the main floor, and two access point are in the basement. Lifx bulb don’t do by -65 dB, as indicated the the access points. Each acess points also has, up to, 16 dbi antennas. 2.4Ghx is limited to a 20 MHz bandwith. SSID is specific to the bulbs only.
The log files from my log server clearly show the lifx bulb refusing to acknowledge the given IP address give by the dhcp server.
Like I said, getting sick and tired of Lifx and it’s management team, producing new products taking a priority over getting older issues.
Lifx making excuses, when yet I and others are having the same issues and more.
Just calling the kettle black.
Ever since lifx was bought… by Buddy in feb 2019 approx, I feel left in the dust for corporate profit.

Wow, you would ship your router to a random on a forum? That’s extreme
Is this you? I googled LIFX and RT-AC86U and found many posts by this person
Have you tried running packet captures on your router? A packet capture with a filter that shows all traffic to/from the light MAC address (as seen by the router) and all broadcast traffic
Also, have you tried a lifx light plugged into a lamp and placed next to the router? I do this sometimes to rule out wifi as an issue I might be having (if the light is right next to the router, that rules out any potential wifi problems as the cause)
