    Hi
    Am stuck with a problem
    Have a 3 floored building with a central stairwell. Around 3000 sqft per floor

    Currently the ground and 2nd floor has two tenda aps wih individual wifi zones and the first floor has a dlink adsl router with its own zone. The dlink router ts the dhcp server

    Problem
    Even after bathing the building in glorious wifi still issues are happening
    1. Clients are not roaming freely. They latch on to a network and hang on to it fordear life. So on a client connected on the ground floor keeps hanging on to a stray signal on the first floor
    2. Device administration is a hassle

    In an attempt to negate this i tried changing all ssids to the same.. but still the roaming is not smooth.. any tips on how to do this?

    I don't think it is possible using consumer grade equipment:

    Hmm. I might just have to junk all of them and get ubiquitis then.
