Model: Deco X60
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 1.0.5 Build 20201013 Rel. 64247

Hi,
 

I have the 3 nodes setup, but some of the devices seem to be connecting to a node that is further away.
For example the wireless printer is connected to the node in the basement (3 floors away) but there is a node in the same room as the printer (I even used that node temporarily hardwired to setup the wireless print server on the machine)

 

Another weird example is that a wired device connected to node A, is erroneously showing has being hard wired to Node B.

My question is, how can I get the devices, to pick the closer node for their connectivity.


Regads,

WES

@W.E.S. 

 

The Deco will recommend which node to connect to based on the k/v/r protocols, in which the device itself makes the final decision. If the device does not seem to be switching you can try disabling the Wi-Fi or rebooting it which should grab the closest node. 

 

As far as the wired device appearing on a different node, were the MAC addresses on the Deco nodes compared to make sure the Deco names weren't swapped?

Hi,

Thanks for replying.

 

I did try rebooting the main router to see if devices would reconnect to a different node.

They reconnected to the same nodes again.

 

I will need to check the wired device to see if it's connected the node I expected.

 

(This setup is at my paren'ts house)
