Almond 3 / Band Steering

I see Band Steering under Wireless Settings (Advanced Settings), but how does one turn it on?

Almond 3 / Internet temporarily not available
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on May 20, 2019, 04:12:28 pm »
Now that my Almond 3 is fixed from the 'white screen of death' I still notice times when the internet is temporarily unavailable, something I don't see when using my old Apple Airport Extreme. Hopefully this is something that is fixed in the next firmware update.

I am trying different names for the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands in case having the same name is the cause.

Any update as to if this button is working? Can't find almond clicks anywhere and need another one.

Almond 3 / Re: Repair service

Take a look at the even tinier components either side that must not be disturbed.

I used low temperature alloy to help with removal, copper braid with lots of flux (Kester 186) to clean up the pads and leaded solder for the new component to keep installation temperatures down; then a cleanup with isopropyl alcohol to make it look clean as if no work had been done at all.

It helps to have a small magnifying glass to check the work.

This is not for everyone.

Hahaha point taken. I opened my A3 up today to take a look. I think itís too small for me to try the repair on my own.

Almond 3 / Re: Repair service

Wouldn't make any sense; the postage two ways, the risk of getting it wrong... the time to do the work, the time to test, the time to go to the post office to send it back. How could one turn a profit?

Even worse, someone who has given it a try and then sends the mess.

Just not worth the hassle, and before anyone asks, I'm really not interested. Just buy a new unit, it would be cheaper.


Anyhow, who am I to deny you the joy of having repaired something yourself?

I second this - or maybe @anwar.shiekh wants to start his own repair service!

Almond 3 / Repair service
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on May 18, 2019, 10:38:23 am »
I have managed to repair four Almond 3 units from the 'white screen of death' issue, but it is not easy work.

Perhaps Securifi could offer a repair service (with charge) for units no longer under warrantee.
