i spoke too soon, it's been playing up againhey I don't want to speak too soon, but I might have found a clumsy fix.
my network set up previous to this evening was:
Virgin Media Superhub 4 running in modem-only mode >>> Orbi mesh network >>> Mi Projector
I just remembered that I have another small xiaomi extender (this one) plugged in to extend my wifi outside the house. It has its own network name from the main mesh.
I tried connecting the projector to this network and it suddenly seems to be working ok!
Virgin Media Superhub 4 running in modem-only mode >>> Orbi mesh network >>> Xiaomi Extended Network >>> Mi Projector
Look at these speed differences. I've gone from being totally unable to connect and on good days only getting an intermittent 10 mbps (red circle) to consistently getting around 30mbps without dropouts (green circle)
I guess it might just crap out again in the coming days, but I'm ok with this if it holds up.
