Rebooting repeaters Edit
I've seen the same problem. One way I found to fix it was to reboot the repeaters as gateways with an internet connection, once they'd run in gateway mode they went back to being repeaters without further problems. Not exactly practical out in the field!
It was almost like Wiana setting/s had changed which resulted in the repeaters failing to mesh, but once they were able to contact Wianna again they sorted themselves out. BTW, no Wiana setting had been changed - unless there are hidden ones managed by Wiana?
