Dear fellow Experts Exchange members:
I have an unusual question that requires the input of fellow members who have had hands-on experience with *ANY ONE* of a set of USB wireless AC network adapters.
Here is my situation: I have an office with two wireless access points (one on the left side and one on the right side of the building). I have dropped the transmit power of each AP to try to get the wireless adapters in their three-or-four laptops to roam to the nearest AP when the users walk from one side to the other.
However, I am unable to find any "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting in the hardware properties of the wireless NIC for any of the current wireless NICs (internal and USB) in the laptops.
As it stands, the users all experience drops when moving from one side of the building to the other due to the wireless adapters in their laptops stubbornly trying to use the AP on the other side of the building despite there being an identically-configured AP literally right overhead.
I have a list of wireless AC adapters recommended by various sites, and I would like to know from any Experts Exchange members who have first-hand experience with *ANY ONE* of them if their device drivers provide a "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting.
Here is the list of wireless AC adapters:
- Alfa Long-Range Dual-Band AC1200 Wireless USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
- Asus USB AC56 Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 Adapter
- Asus USB-AC68
- Buffalo Technology AirStation WI-U2-866D
