Hi, I have been trying to understand wireless better and for the most part have a pretty decent understanding of the differences between 2.4Ghz wifi and 5.0Ghz wifi. What I have always struggled with is trying to setup a wireless repeater so that there can exist only one SSID in the house and my wireless laptop can just improve in wifi signal as it leaves the range of the router and enters the range of the repeater. The way I usual set it up is the router has been Router ssid name: Home and the repeater ssid: home_ext Then I would have to change wifi networks depending if I was close to the repeater or the router. The reason I had to do this was because my wireless devices like laptop or phone would try to hold onto the router signal at 1 bar poor signal even though I was close to the repeater. I have been told to make sure the router and the repeater are on different channels but that doesn't seem to do the trick. I put the router on channel 11 and the repeater on 6 or even 1. Can someone explain this better on how to make this work perfect so that as I go from the router to the repeater its seamless and the signal stays good.
