Hi - my mesh network (4 APs) is 50 ft apart and mostly wired - but the seamless switching is far from seamless. In fact it's pretty bad at switching because signal strength is high but so is interference between floors. I need to toggle device wifi off & on to get it to switch APs. Which is why I would like to **use the feature pictured** to lower transmit power and encourage the devices to switch APs when on different floors. When they re-connect after toggling, they work great, they just overlap too much to signal to each other than - the one coming through the floor is not the one to use.

  @sillywilly Same problem for me would be nice to turn the tx power down to reduce AP overlap

Agree with this, I also have 4 and have them spaced logically to give best coverage. However my work laptop AX211 wifi, seems to like to jump nodes which causes me all sorts of problems (zscaler). I think if I could reduce the strength I could reduce these issues. I was quite surprised to not see any option for this, would be good if you could set on a per AP

  @Mat-Moo What are those problems?

Did you activate fast roaming on the Deco?

I've disabled it last night, trying everything but still seeing drop outs
