    Wink TL-WPA4220 Configuration to Roaming

    Model : TL-WPA4220TKIT

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Dear team,


    I have a router TL-WR841HP and a PowerLine TL-WPA4220Kit, after cloning SSID into PowerLine when I walk trough my apartment and I'm near to PowerLine my cellphone doesn't connect to PowerLine always remains connected to the Router. My cellphone Samsung A5 doesn't do roaming.

    Please help possible issues.

    thanks

    Unless you have brandnew "mesh" technology WLAN (you don't), it is up to the client device if and when it switches from one access point to the other. Yes, smartphones tend to cling to a weak signal for as long as they can, and only then scan for the best one to reconnect to. There's not much you can do here - and most of the time it's not even an actual issue either.

    Mesh WLAN coordinates all access points on the same SSID, and lets the APs actively steer client devices onto the best AP.

    Dear Peter, The solution can be have a TP-Lonk router with Mesh Tecnoligy and an access point with the same technology..?
    Thanks

    Yes, if you have router and access point(s) all sharing the same Mesh technology approach, then your devices will roam the network much more smoothly. There is no indication from TP-Link as to if and when they're going to integrate this technology into their products. Others are already shipping updated firmware, e.g. AVM.

    Deco M5 from TP-Link supports mesh network now
