Hello - I have two TP Link EAP245 AP units. Both are hooked to my router's switch. I set each one up using the web interface separately(each with their own login). Each router has the same ssid for 2.4 and 5 frequencies. My computers and phones flawlessly more from one AP to the other based on signal strength. I also have a printer hooked wirelessly to the network. I am only able to print when I am at one side of the house. When on the other side the printer can not be found so even though I have one ssid, it appear the two AP units are not talking. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
As mentioned in the query, the user has two TP Link EAP245 AP units hooked to a separate router switch. Both the routers have a separate frequency of 2.4 GHz and 5ghz. Both the routers have the same SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5ghz. The users has his mobile and computer connected to both the network and they shift places according to signal strength. The user also has a printer attached wirelessly to both the networks. However there is a problem, the user can only print from one side of the house. The other side of house does not lets the user to print wirelessly. Let’s find out the solution of this issue. The query can be sorted on three conditions ;
The first scenario - It is possible that the two AP units might conflict with each other as the switch is not able to bear the load of both the routers. So the user need to change the switch to more conventional one.
Second scenario - If the issue still persists, the user needs to attach only one router to the switch at one time. You can do this by disconnecting the other router from the switch.
Third scenario - You need to reset both the routers simultaneously.
