Optimal connectivity

Dear reader,

 

I bougth the ORBI RBR 50 system with Two satellites.

 

Router is at base Floor, first satelitte is at first Floor (wired), second satelitte at the second Floor (wireless).

 

I have the impression that a device like laptop is automatically connected to the router/ satelitte that makes the best connection.

 

I have Two questions:

1. Can I manually select the Access point to connect to? If so, how?

2. In case an Access point fails connection, does the system automatically reconnect to another Access point which is available at that moment?

 

big Thanks in advance,

No, the Orbi that has the strongest signal to the device, is the one the device will connect to.

If one satellite fails, and the other satellite is close enough for a connection, the device will connect to that satellite.

There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

If you can explain why you want to do this, perhaps someone can offer a suggestion.

 

Just another user.
