[UKids] "XO-1 classrooms" don't reliably connect to many/most Wifi AP's

Potentially silly question. Once the xo-1 ‎is successfully attached to an AP, does the mesh beaconing on those three channels on that box then potentially stop?

I had my twelve xo -1s successfully attach to an AP, and run internet reliably, concurrently  . Powering up a virgin non-ap attached xo-1 is when I saw issues.

Nota bene, I did no collaboration testing.

Yes, same here.

You mean the last beacon time shown in the scan results? Yes, this
demonstrates the underlying fault well; that the scan results for the
access point are being lost.
