@Epic_failure 

Hi, the firmware that allowed manual signal source selection has not been released yet on Deco M4.

Did you have any issue when the satellite Deco is not connected to the nearest unit?

There is a beta firmware that has optimized the signal source selection.

If you are interested, please have a check of your private message.

Thank you very much.

Any chance to still get a firmware version with the option to select the nearest or other satellite? One of the satellite in the attic is still connecting to my main deco in the hallway on the ground floor (2 floors below), while I have two satellites on the second floor and one of those is connected with a wire....

@TP-Link 

 

Selecting the source manually needs to be addressed now as it has been a known issue for users since 2019.
Simply stating that the node should normally use the strongest wireless connection that it can find does not suffice.

Asking for layout of the node does not suffice.

 

Manually selecting the source signal will, because we as issuers know which connection is the best.

@TP-Link  I have 4 Deco X20 in a straight line from one end of my house to the other and then the garage. I need to be able to select the source signal (X20) because the one in the garage keeps trying to connect to the main Deco, even though the signal is very weak, which defeats the purpose of me being able to use the mesh unit to get a strong internet signal into my garage.

 

Is there any way to select the signal source on the X20?

@MLB123 

Hi, welcome to the community.

Currently, there is no beta firmware for Deco X20 V2 and Deco W3600 yet.

On the Deco APP>More>network optimization, have you tried to optimize the network and check whether the signal source changed or not?

 

Could you please help me get the following information as well:

1. Can I have a picture of the floor map about the location and distance of each Deco unit?

2. Please send me a picture of the signal source on the garage Deco?

3. Was there any specific issue on the garage Deco, like disconnection from the main Deco unit(LED turning red)?

Thank you very much.
