I need seamless roaming between multiple access point / wireless nodes - it's a must have for me since I do a lot of conference calls on Skype.
I have ethernet cables running through the house, and will purchase a Gigabit switch, which will be used to ethernet backhaul for the units.
I was exploring the SMB products (EAP 225 and Omada controler) but came about that Deco M5 does provide seamless roaming and the units can act as an access point.
However, looking at the FAQ page (https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1842/) I still had some oustanding questions:
1) The FAQ mentions that you loose features if you enable AP mode. Is seamless roaming one of them?
2) Can I use one of the Deco M5 nodes as my router, and the two other as access points? Does the AP mode change applies to all units, or just one specific unit?
3) When they are set on AP mode, how does the controller works? On EAP 225, you need the Omada controller to configure the APs. This is important question especially if the answer to question #2 is no - all 3 would be APs, so no one is a master/controller?
Depending on the answers to above, I will have additional questions.
Thanks for your help!
