Hi everyone. I purchased two RE330s for use with the Archer VX1810v modem/router.

Do these extenders, when used to create an EasyMesh network, have fast roaming functionality?

I looked through the specs but it seems not, but it seems strange to me for a product that supports mesh networks.

thanks

Here's the screenshot from a document I posted earlier:

 

 

AFAIK 802.11r is not implemented in the RE330 FW.

There's more detailed information about 802.11r implementaion in business community - check this thread.

Here's the difference between the different mesh technologies that TP-Link offers.

Here's what EasyMesh is in more details - your both devices (modem/router and REs) should support an Easymesh advertised as Whole Home Seamless Network.

Thank you. And fast roaming is supported using RE330 in access point mode?

No, RE330 is working as a standalone access point while in AP mode.

Sin. technically, if it supports 802.11k/v/r protocols, as it should for a mesh system, there's no compelling reason not to support fast roaming.

Excuse me. I had read carelessly. You're right.
