Im after some advice on the TP-Link Deco.
Our situation is... we have a router in the corner of the house (near the Internet cable that comes into the house) but Wifi doesnt reach the far corner of the house, you can just about get a signal but its very inconsistent, slow and dropping in and out.
So I set up a second access point in the opposite corner of the house and that cover the whole house great.
When you are near one on the APs you get a great signal but when you then more to the other side of the house it stay connected to the very weak signal, instead of jumping to the stronger signal from the other AP. Which as I understand it is where Mesh networks come into play? Currently we have to disable Wifi, and re-enable it, and then the device connects to the now closer AP.
So my general question that I would like assistance with is:-
1. When you connect to a mesh network, do devices automatically "jump" to the stronger signal ( to avoid my issue of "sticking" to the weak signal)
And specifically for the Deco
2. Does the backhaul work over Ethernet?
3. Does the software have a timer so Wifi can be disabled automatically on a timer, ie over night (I dont like to keep Wifi on when we're asleep). My current router has a "disable wifi" on timer option.
4. Does the QoS allow certain machines to get priority or can you limit certain devices? For gaming we have one PC that I would like to get priority, the others are just browsing and speed isint the issue.
5. Can I disable the Amazon/Alexa option?
