I’m a new Sonoff user and have just flashed my first Sonoff Basic with Tasmota.
An issue that I’m facing, and I’ve found that many people have been reporting is that the sonoff goes offline after initial connection. And some have projects where they are soldering a custom antenna on to the sonoff due to this reason. In my case, I have the sonoff connected to ceiling panel light (metal housing). If I stand directly below the light and check wifi strength on my phone, I see a near perfect signal. But, I think the metal housing could still be causing a signal drop to the sonoff. Its not due to Tasmota because the problem existed even before the flashing.
However, I’m a little skeptical about these antenna mods because, none of the major sonoff tinkering blogs (like SupeHouse), don’t seem to touch on anything of the sort (maybe I just missed it?). So, I’m just curious to hear from someone on this forum whether this is actually a solution or is the problem something entirely different and require a different solution.
