@TP-Link upgrade just worked as expected!
 

Finally I am able to select the signal source. Thanks!

 

Just noticed sometimes mobile devices won't connect to nearest deco.

@RobsonT Same problem in my installation (five Deco M5, one M9plus, connected using ethernet), client. devices are taking too long to switch to closest Deco.

@RobsonT 

 

Hi, the new firmware also allows to manually select the linked Deco.

3. Added support for customizing clients connection preference under Deco App > CLIENTS > Select the client > Click the gear icon on the right-up corner > Connection Preference.

Note: This feature is ONLY supported in Mesh networks consisting of ALL Deco's with firmware 1.6.0 installed. And the clients are connected to the HOST NETWORK.

 

@Cicero_Neto 

Did you mean after manually selecting the linked Deco, the clients need a long time to switch from the original one to this unit? How long did it take normally?

@TP-Link Overall I am very satisfied with version 1.6.0. I was having trouble to put Decos to use ethernet infrastructure, but as soon as the New version was installed all Decos connected to the main Deco Using ethernet, no need to configure manually. I noticed the delay in cell phones when moving around my home, with mesh and fast roaming enabled. 

Thanks.

  • Wi-Fi Dead-zone Killer—Deco uses a system of units to achieve a whole-home Wi-Fi coverage, Eliminating weak signal areas once and for all
  • Seamless Experience—units work together to form a unified network with a single network name, so phones automatically connect to the fastest Deco as your moving, creating a real seamless Wi-Fi experience.

And sometimes devices didn't connect to the nearest Deco, sometimes Deco App show wireless devices with connection type Wired

I'm having the same issue as @Lordvader , after selecting a connection preference on multiple devices and after rebooting the deco's and devices, they still connect to the 'nearest or best' deco (not the one I selected).

 

Is there any way to resolve this?

@TP-Link 

 

This update made me so happy even with their bugs.

 

Finally I can set which band I want to use with each device.

 

With this I am now able to use my printer in the same network (2.4 GHz) along with the other devices (5 GHz), no more guest networks.

 

However I am facing same issue as the community: Devices connecting to another Deco even if I selected an specific one, and also I noticed that devices are taking long time to switch between Deco units.

 

Thank you!

Hi, did you have any issues with the above statement?
