How to set up and properly situate a RE450?
Our Linksys WRT1900ACS wifi router has beamforming, but the house is 80x30 and even though it’s in the center of the house, on a high shelf, it doesn’t cover 3 security cams at one end, very well, which are outside the house.
So the security company suggested and extender, and I just bought a TP-Link RE450.
I don’t know if it’s a good idea that I set the SSID’s of the extender, with the same names as the Router, but it seemed like the way to do it.
In the sketch here, the cams are on the right and I installed this near the TV on the right, but it uses a remote wifi access point, to drive it, so the two were interacting weirdly and we kept getting sound interruptions.
The two cams in the upper right corner have the weakest signals to the wifi, usually. The security company wants them over 90% but they have been in the 70’s.
Any suggestions on the best way to accomplish this?
