Hah.. I got the same treatment from the wife yesterday, "You're not going to leave that cable running across the house are you?"LOL, I tried pretty much all the same except for packet capture and connecting to a hotspot. I dont think it will make a difference with the hotspot but I will try that after work today. I am convinced it is a problem with the firmware version and the current app. Connection does not seem to be an issue. As mentioned before the grill is connected with good signal to my router and the router is right next to the grill. My wife thought I was nuts running extended cables to the deck for the router lol. I tried to keep it as dumb as possible for support and have no out of the ordinary gear in the mix at the moment. I was connected using a netgear WN3000RP extender but decided to remove that from the mix as well until its working so am currently connecting direct to an xfinity X1 router.
So something I haven't tried yet, running the older versions of the Traeger app on an android platform . I'm going to try that later today.
The very first firmware update (01.01.00 3/5/19) release notes specify "1. Improved WiFi stability. ", I'm guessing we got grills that had a beta/pre-retail version of the firmware as it's not even listed on their change log.
