Linksys Velop is causing problems

Linksys Velop is causing problems

Hey! I have a HomeKit setup with Home Assistant and some Yeelight bulbs. It worked perfectly for months, but now it broke down suddenly, I can’t get an answer. Yeelight bulbs were unreliable (they often didn’t respond to the local network), but I removed them because their software was bad. Now my instance of Home Assistant no longer responds, is connected via Ethernet and I can access the administration interface, not just the HomeKit part. I heard that the problem may be my router (2 Linksys Velop nodes), but I wanted to check. If I restart them, HomeKit starts running reliably for two hours, then shuts down again. I saw the same behavior on Yeelight bulbs, they work a few hours after they were turned on by bike (sometimes not, but it could really be their software, not well done).

Is there anything I can try to solve this? I’d rather avoid replacing my routers, they worked fine until yesterday, when everything broke down.
