Restrict Connected Devices to Satellites Only?

Hi All,

 

I am running an RBR350 Router with 2 Satellites.

As the router is in the garage and my teenagers are above and next to it, can I restrict them to connecting to the satellites in the main house only?

If not, would they be getting priority where speed/bandwidth is concerned? I figure the signal sent to the satellites from the router could be weakened if there are other devices directly connected to it.

I am at the other side of the house and work from home in graphics so would rather priority coming to me during the day, weekdays.

No.

 

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
