Prefered access point

Post by maverick_i » 07 Oct 2019, 22:41

Hello,

I have the proposal to tell the camera a prefered mac access point to connect in the case there is a wifi mesh infrastructure.
In mesh configuration, the camera just connects to the first AP it finds, not the strongest one.
I sno prefered mac to connect with, then the camera can connect the way it connects now.

This can also be applied to the Outdoor camera.

I hope this can be taken into consideration.

Regards.

Hello,

the intention of a Wifi-Mesh is, that it appears as "one network" and because of this a preferred access point is not useful. But the mesh AND the cam should also support "active mesh steering". That means, that the mesh-master should be able to (re-)direct a wifi-device to use a specific access point in case of the signal is significant better than the currently used AP.

I have just updated my Fritz!Box 7490 to the lab-version 07.19-74231 which supports "active mesh steering", but it seems, that the indoor-cam has some problems with it. The cam re-connects several times per day.
