Earlier this year with the help of the fine folks at Lawrence Systems I implemented an IOT VLan in my home by upgrading our WIFI network from 3 first generation Eero devices in bridge mode to a TP-Link TL-SG2210P switch and an EAP620HD access point. My home is approximately 2500 square feet split across 3 floors vertically, metal roof, brick siding. I currently have the access point mounted at roughly the topmost logical center of the home on the 3rd floor. I’m a little disappointed in the signal strengh of the AP and am wondering if I’m experiencing (1) a natural limitation of the device, (2) a somewhat defective device, or (3) I’m experiencing interference from neighboring signals.
I’ve recently checked the channels my neighbors use and moved mine as far away as possible. I think a slight improvement was noticed from that.
Should I have purchased a different TP-Link AP? Or should I add another EAP620 and create a “mesh” situation?
Thanks so much for the guidance as I’m learning SOOO much from all your expertise!
