Pin a device to one of the three meshes

Hi, I have a MR60 router in my home. I noticed that my laptop gets assigned to different mesh units though the laptop is startionary at one part of the home. Often it gets assigned to the mesh furthest from it. Is there a way to pin the laptop to a specific mesh that is physically the closest to it? Thanks

No. It's up to devices to pick and choose where they connect too.

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

Try turning down the power output of the RBRs wifi radios from 100% to 50% and see if this changes anything. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings
