We recently had a power interruption, and our wifi thermostat now has intermittent connectivity. I contacted the thermostat manufacturer, and they said that nslookup has to work for the thermostat to work. They gave me some host names to use to test nslookup.
I have a router with both a 5GHz and 2.4GHz network. The nslookups work on the 5GHz network, but not on the 2.4GHz network. The thermostat supports only 2.4GHz connection.
I've tried resetting everything - router, thermostat, modem. Sometimes, resetting these will make the thermostat work for a few hours, but it eventually disconnects again.
None of the computers we have connected to the network indicate any problem with internet connectivity, other than the failed nslookups.
Does anyone know why the nslookups would work on the 5GHz network but not the 2.4GHz network?
I would just contact the ISP, but we have Spectrum, and when I've contacted them in the past, their support has been worse than awful. I was put on hold literally for several hours, and when I was fortunate enough to have someone answer, the person usually knew less about how to fix the problem than I did, which isn't much. I would switch to the other ISP in our area (AT&T), but I've heard they are even worse.
