I'm trying to understand how clients attach to a particular meshpoint. Both of my MPs connect direct to the router. However, I can be within 10 feet of a single MP and my device is still connected to the MP on another floor. Not using router steering, but do have band steering on. Thoughts?
@mike-kelly When router steering is not being used, devices will connect to the strongest signal they get at that time (be it the router or a mesh point). In the case of iOS (I'm assuming you're using it based on this) however, it will not switch between mesh points until the signal is weak enough to be considered dropping off, even if there is another with a considerably stronger signal available.
This is an iOS thing and unfortunately there is no way to change this behaviour.
@ben-thomas Thank you, that is very helpful!
