Cannot add accessories via WiFi repeater

Cupertino, December 6, 2021

Hello everyone. I have a Meross air purifier right on the edge of my router's 2.4 GHz network. I have an Aqara E1 hub that acts as a repeater and also a Powerline adapter that does the same thing. Both are nearby and if I run a Speedtest from them, they get a pretty good performance, so it definitely works. The problem is that I can't add the Meross device to the HomeKit if I use either of these two networks. I scan the QR code and the device is detected correctly, but HomeKit eventually stops trying to add it. If I add using my router's WiFi, HomeKit adds the device quickly. Can I check to see why HomeKit can't find the device by extension? My router is a Now TV Hub 2 (not a HomeKit). I have no firewalls inside the LAN and everything is in the same class C address space. Both repeaters have different SSIDs for my router. Thanks for any suggestions!
