Last week, I replaced a failing router with a new Surf SOHO and AP One AC Mini. The installation was straightforward (thank you @Michael234 for https://routersecurity.org/) and everything seems to be working fine. A couple of days ago, however, the AP One AC Mini lost its time synchronization (no more “System: Time synchronization successful” messages in the event log) and now thinks that it’s Dec 31 2017.
The Surf SOHO is still syncing nicely so I think the problem may have something to do with how I’ve connected the AP One to the Surf SOHO:
- DSL modem to Surf SOHO WAN
- Surf SOHO LAN to HP switch
- HP switch to AP One WAN
I connected the AP One to the switch to permit high bandwidth connections between the AP One and other ethernet connected equipment. If I were to connect the AP One to the Surf SOHO, the AP One would be throttled by the SOHO’s 120 Mbps throughput.
How should I configure the Surf SOHO and/or AP One to get the AP One syncing again?
Hope you can help,
