The issue seems to be resolved for me once the server patches went through. Any failed commands lately seem to be more of an Alexa issue now.

For all those still having issues getting “server is unresponsive” in the Alexa app, I had to actually physically unplug the wemo, plug it back in and then wait for it to reconnect to the WiFi and wemo servers. After that the Alexa app and echo devices were able to control the wemo again...if this continues, I’ll likely return the 4 wemo plugs I have and buy Leviton. I’ve never had any problems with the 5 Leviton switches I have. Of course the above won’t work for anyone with wemo wall switches. Thank goodness I didn’t buy any of those. 😳

I bought 4 plug switches and one dimmer from Wemo and I have the same problem - 20% of the time does not respond to Alexa and the other 80% it takes 2-3second to switch. On the other end, the TP-Link provided by Amazon is working amazing and I am regret of spending more than $200 on getting Wemo products. I am expecting Wimo to resolve the issue and upgrade wither HW or SW for free. The only reason I got Wemo is due to their long year's reputation of BELKIN and let se they deliver on this promise...

OP here. I found a SOLUTION that WORKED!
I ended up getting rid of all my Wemo switches and replaced everything TP-link light switches and wall plugs.
They are cheaper AND acutally RELIABLE.
Wemo just gave me constant unneccessary headaches, and their tech support only spin me in cricles.
TP-Link fixed all of that! 1 year with TP-link and never once a problem.
Here's the link to their product:
Wemo - if you are reading this, here's some free advice for you: Hire TP-Link's lead firmware engineer.

TP Link is not without it's own problems as can be seen on their forum. And keep in mind their cloud server management does not need to comply with the stricter privacy laws that govern companies based in NA or Europe.
It is certainly possible to get wemos to work reliably - the problems are caused by belkin's app, not the wemos themselves.
