Re: One visible SSID broadcasted by 2 routers?

said by ba1drick:

I think I should try to manually power down each camera (while both APs are running) and see if they will connect to the stronger/closer one...

This is what I would suggest. This will give the camera the opportunity to connect to the AP with the strongest signal. Once connected to an AP, it will maintain that connection until something prevents it from doing so. Ideally, the load will be balanced with each AP having half of the wireless devices connected to it. Just remember that you will need to repeat the process whenever an AP is rebooted, or if a camera is forced to another AP due to temporary interference from the wireless speakers.
