But I never reuse the SSID. Why is a longer discussion about how fail over works (it usually doesn't) and other issues but here I need to know what device is using which AP.
As to the question of the AP SSID name change, that would be in the manual which a link to was missing.
I am trying to extend the WIFI through my house and have one Unifi access point in my kitchen, where the wifi is strong and works great, and where our modem is in the other end of the house in our bar area the wifi works great. The problem is, in the middle, our bedrooms and another entertainment area, the WIFI bounces between the modem, and the AP point, as it's right in the middle of both. It causes our TV (has to be used as wifi due to house being solid stone and too expensive to chase cables into wall), to drop signal etc bouncing between both. The AP and the modem have the same SSID.. is there a way of changing the name of the AP? like Home1 instead of HOME as they both are?
i hope this makes sense.. or do i have to buy another AP for the middle of the house to fix the problem?
