Roaming from the RT-AC68U (we can’t roam between the WLR-4004, which may won’t work too) to the Archer C5 doesn’t work properly, but backwards it works properly.
In this case, we have to wait for a few minutes and restart Wi-Fi on the roaming phone/notebook (which may not be required, but this seems to speed it up). On my Android phone, I won’t get an IP address or a connection to the rest of the network. I’m only able to ping to the Archer C5 and not the RT-AC68U or Google’s DNS when this happens.
Removing the switch between the RT-AC68U and the Archer C5: Didn’t seems to effect anything, still the same problem as explained above.
- Ground floor: Asus RT-AC68U (our main router)
- 2th floor (attic): TP-Link Archer C5 (configured as AP, no DHCP/NAT)
- Garden: Sitecom WLR-4004 (configured as AP, no DHCP/NAT)
There is 1 unmanaged switch (TP-link TL-SG108) between the RT-AC68U and the Archer C5.
All AP’s are configured to use a separate channel (1, 6, 11), with the same SSID’s.
Why can't I roam from RT-AC68U to the Archer C5 and what/where could be the problem?
