Batman-adv mesh has short packet loss spans


I'm currently experiencing very short times of packet loss on my devices connected to routers via LAN/WiFi that participate in my batman-adv 802.11s mesh.

I'm using a mesh of 4 Archer C7v2/5 devices running OpenWrt 19.07.1 and non-ct ath10k drivers. The mesh is WPA3-SAE encrypted. MTU = 1500 (due to bug in driver). Topology is like this.

I suspect it has something to do with bridge loop avoidance which was my last action to turn it on and add the archer c7v5 on floor 0 to the mesh (surplus it already had LAN connection).

Any help appreciated :). Thank you.

Kind regards
