Looking for any help to try and establish the weak link in my setup. Have been on Zwift for over 2 years and mostly been stable but having certain phases of signal dropouts on every ride for unknown reason. I purchased a new MacBook Air 2 months ago which seemed to fix the dropouts initially but now they are back for some reason and ruining most of my rides having to hammer it back to group full gas or it is killing a race completely!! Frustrating! I have noticed there are certain points in routes which seem worse (eg when routes cross each other) but other times it is random. Here is my setup if anyone can see a possible issue I would really appreciate it! Also am in a dedicated zwift room so there shouldn’t be other interference close by.
Kickr16 - FEC selected
Garmin Ant+ - ext cable next to trainer
MacBook Air - HDMI cable to tv
Kickr headwind fan - BT via app
Tickr HR Monitor - ant+
Wahoo cadence sensor - ant+
Using 2 separate iPhones - 1 for ZC app & fan and other for BT headphones & music
BT Keyboard & usb linked mouse
Thanks all for your replies!
I will try all your suggestions, just dropped file into Zwiftalizer and the analysis actually said ‘Yikes!’ Apparently my ant+ signal was up and down a lot throughout my ride today. I did only have one dropout but it needs sorting! It has given me a list of things to try so have ordered a new USB ext cable and will try the router channel again although last time this interfered with Husbands work set up
Will try again with one phone Gerrie - I thought 2 would be more stable with back and forth of all the apps I am using but worth trying for sure. It is FEC selected.
I don’t use bluetooth at all, use kinetics ant+ dongel, have laptop within 1.5 meter from kickr.
use ethernet kabel to laptop too, hdmi kabel to tv. changed channel on borth wifi
Usually works, can see reconnect in zwift logs sometimes, but never have dropous anymore.
i think headwind & tickr hr can use ant+, if i don’t remember wrong.
Make sure bt is disabled in TV also.
