My weather device has the capability to find my SSID and connect that way.

Me either. I think it's due to the speed of either the pod (slower than the regular router) or the WEMO. I think I'm going to call Belkin (with WEMO people).

My 2 WEMOs spontaneously healed! Both now work. One came back on-line after a couple of days, and the other took about a week. Interesting.

I have same problem. Wemo smart plugs (WiFi connected power receptacles) intermittently lose connection or at least visibility as viewed from Wemo App. When I log into XFi the Wemo devices show connected on my network. My theory is that they are intermittently connecting back and forth between my pods or the router. Could that be happening? If so, is there a way to force them to stay connected to router and not use pods? It says on Wemo (owned by Belkin) page that smart plugs may not work reliably with range extenders. I really need to figure this out as I use these smart plugs to force a reboot of devices that get hung after power flickers.

Tuckd, thanks for posting. The xFi pods don't broadcast a separate SSID from the modem so there isn't a way to bypass the wiFi network and connect directly to the modem. You could unplug the xFi pods and WLAN to the modem or connect via WPS if your devices allow and then plug the xFi pods back in and test there.
