Firmware Version: 1.5.0 Build 20210607 Rel. 56436

I have the Deco Mesh WiFi System (Deco S4) 3-pack. When I connect a tp link smart plug, or other smart tv or device, there are 3 choices of my WiFi name in the list of available networks, so how do I know which one to pick that is closest to the device?

Hi, normally there would only be one SSID when trying to connect mobile devices.

Would that be the network of your old routers?

May I know the number of your smart plugs, smart TV, and other devices that have 3 same Wi-Fi displayed?

Would you please help me run a simple test:

1. change the wireless name on Deco to be a totally different one.

2. then check on these devices again to see whether there would still be 3 same SSID.

--If yes, it could be highly appreciated if you could send me some screenshots about it.

Thank you.
