Does the EX7000 have the one Wifi name feature if i hook this up as an access point?  I have a lan cable in a room that is a almost a dead zone back to my router so installing as an access point is best option but would like to use the same SSID as my router.  If i am reading correct this seems to be an option with this device.

You can set the SSID(s) of the extender to match the router.


There is an open question on whether the smart roaming feature (802.11k) operates in AP mode or not.  However, the clients still will generally roam to the strongest AP.
