Repeated Alerts on new WAP

I recently upgraded several WAP’s in my home. One of them keeps triggering the following alert: New or Rogue Access Point detected: 88:DC:96:91:A5:C8 on Wi-Fi Haines-2.4GHz. None of the other new WAP’s have caused this alert to be issued. Why this one? How do I eliminate ate it?

    Hey @97engineers

    Users can always disable the WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection) alerts from the Security Tabs

    They can connect with the mobile device to the secondary mesh AP (by staying closer to it, it should be the preferred one) and use one of the WiFi tools such as Network -> WiFi Performance. That should prompt to add the secondary BSSID to the list of the network, so it's not recognized as rogue anymore.

    I don't see a way to do that using the mobile app. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't see a "NETWORK" tab anywhere in the mobile or desktop app. What am I doing wrong?
