Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.0 0.9.1

 

I've been using an MR600 with two RE305 Adapters and seem to get the best performance when using the following manual configuration rather than

enabling smartconnect on the MR600.

 

  • Set 2.4Ghz channel with 20Mhz width, and the same with 5Ghz with a 40Mhz width.
  • Each RE305 is set for OneMesh to be enabled.

 

Onemesh configuration page recommends enabling smartconnect.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to setup OneMesh?

 

Thanks Paul

@ansellp Hello, 

 

If your Wi-Fi connection is not that stable, you could keep using lower bandwidth to reduce some Wi-Fi channel interference. 

Normally we recommended enabling Smart Connect, which will combine your 2G and 5G SSIDs to one SSID on MR600, and clients could roam faster between AP's 2 Wi-Fi bands. 

 

But you could try and adjust according to its real performance.

@Solla-topee is smart connect the same as 'band steering' in other vendors?  So will that mean that all Onemesh devices will use smartconnect if i set this on the MR600 router?

 

Thanks Paul
