I have a tp-link archer9, and all the wemo devices are connected to the 2.4GHz b/g/n and SSID broadcast off. Except this mini switch, three other wemo devices are working fine on the same router settings.
Could you elaborate as to why you might think it's related to the router mode?
Here is a list of wemo devices:
3 and 4 were purchased together.

It seems there may be production differences between wemo minis, some of them having more trouble than others to stay connected. More conservative router settings help work around belkin's issues. Sometimes moving them to a different location can help.

Had a bit of spare time over the holiday break to play around and experiment with my WiFi router and WiFi extender unit. My router was set on auto for both channel and width. I changed my 2.4 GHz band to use channel 11 and width 20/40MHz. After this configuration, did a refresh on wemo app, and all 4 units were detected and could be controlled remotely.
In my situation, I also had a WiFi extender, which I originally created separate SSID from the actual WiFi router. I changed this to use the same SSID as the wifi router and moved it to an optimal location. So all units could reach the WiFi. I used the app WfFi Network Analyzer Pro and SpeedTest to measure the signal strength and speed. So all is good now. I wanted to experiment more with the different settings, but got rear ended in traffic :-(. So the experiment has to go on the back burner.
I suppose folks just need to take the 2.4GHz band out of the auto and select either the 20 or 40MHz width, will work.
Thanks Bilim35CI7 for suggesting.
Does wemo even know about this and put this bit of info in the release notes, so others don't go nut trying to figure this out. I'd imagine this also causes many others to unnecessary return the product.
