What is the problem?
I recently bought and set up a Pi 4B for OctoPrint usage. The setup process has been pretty seemless, but I've started running in to problems with maintaining SSH sessions to the Pi from inside my network. For reference, it's running on WiFi
So... I've got both a problem and a question. I'll start with the question...
I know what the IP address is internally for my Pi. I can ping the IP and it responds. However, when I ping the hostname, it returns with an IP that's outside of my network. Is that normal?
The issue I'm having is with inconsistent network connection. The quality is -55db. So, I know I'm well within range of the router (which is a Netgear Orbi RBR50 for reference). I keep loosing connection and having slow response over SSH. Ping tests show similar results with clusters of dropped packets every couple of minutes.
What did you already try to solve it?
On the advice of a similar thread for general Raspbian support, I disabled IPv6 on all interfaces on the Pi (tried to disable at the router, but couldn't find a setting) and can confirm that IPv6 is disabled, but it's made no difference.
I also checked the signal quality and moved the Pi around to confirm it's not the location of the device that's causing the issue.
