Our organization has a very long hall way. I have two WiFi routers in the hall, 1 on the West end and one on the East end. When an employee walks from West end to the east in, the tablet switches to the east end WiFi router and drops the network connection for a split second.
The program we use on the tablet has a very low packet loss threshold. This means, the program will kick you out if any packets are lost. I believe we are losing the pack when the tablet switches to the other WiFi router.
Switching to the other WiFi router is fine, that is what I want it to do to extend the range of the wireless network. I set the WiFi routers up with the same SSID and password so if users on the West end walk to the east end they would have internet.
Is it possible to have the tablet switch from the West WiFi Router to the East WiFi router without dropping it's connection for that split second ?
For your information, these WiFi routers are in wifi mode and leasing out IP addresses to the tablets. Do I need some type of extender or need to run them in AP mode ?
How have you and other organizations solved this issue ?
