I really enjoy working with my Homey 2.0.4 (Early 2016). Thanks to the great developers I created a lot of cool flows that works seamlessly.
My provider offered me a month ago a faster connection and a new Wifi-router, a FRITZ!box 7581 with dual WLAN. From that moment on Homey looses from time to time connection, resulting in the message: ‘Sorry, I can’t reach the server. Try again later.’ Sometimes for hours it works perfectly and then the problem appears. After trying 2, 3 or 4 times trying it works perfectly again.
I tried many things:
-installing the old FRITZ!box (3490) again (didn’t connect to the internet)
-removed the repeater (from FRITZ!box)
-on the FRITZ!box put the profile of the Homey on ‘unrestricted’
-‘assign Homey to the same IP4v address’
-‘allow access for applications’
-‘send status information via UPnP’
-‘setting up FRITZ!box as a time server in the home network’
The strange thing happened when I connected Homey to the Guest section of the network of the same FRITZ!box (7581). Now it works perfectly without any loss with the server. Unfortunately Homey isn’t able to share data with other WiFi devices like the Harmony hub, Evohome, et cetera, so it is no solution for me.
Can anyone help me?
