Have you ever had a (possibly) broken HomePod mini wreaking havoc on your HomeKit network?

Cupertino, October 6, 2023

About four days ago, my HomeKit network went crazy. 10 unresponsive devices. Then 40. Then 6. Then 26. And on and on. After a lot of troubleshooting, I think I've narrowed it down to just one HomePod mini (I have five of them). After I removed it from HomeKit, things went back to normal. I connected it to my Mac and did a cable restore. I added it back to my network and things went crazy again. I also noticed through my WiFi network app that the mini had a weak WiFi connection despite being 5 meters from an AP (and other devices using the same AP without issue). Curious if anyone has experienced this? An additional note, the mini was never the primary hub, my wired Apple TV always was/is. So interesting to see that a faulty hub, despite not being the main one, can wreak such havoc.
