I've been having issues for a while where Homekit says my Chamberlain MyQ Home Bridge is "Not Available".  This also happens with my Wemo devices, and ecobee thermostat.

If anyone uses Netgear Orbi router, firmware v2.1.4.16 mentions Homekit improvements in the release notes.  I've had NO "Not Available" issues with Chamberlain MyQ Home Bridge since upgrading!

FYI to any Orbi owners with Homekit issues.

I’ve also had these errors with my Motorola modem, turns out that my modem is a dual band (5mhz and 2.5ghz). You must setup up your opener on the 2.5 GHz band. I had mine on the 5 GHz. It worked intermittently because the modem auto switches between the two bands. Make sure your on the 2.5ghz system
