I have a Tplink-Archer C7 V5 router with Openwrt 19.07.7 and a Tplink-RE305 repeater with OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r16957-3d026d2425.
With 2,4 GHz Mesh point connection and WDS mode it works like a dream. The mobile devices connect nicely once the signal level drops between -70 and -80dBm.
However, at 5GHz there are several problems.
with mesh point connection the link speed is fast, however the download speed is only 6-Mbit out of 30. Devices will not connect over a weakening signal strength.
In WDS mode, link speed and download speed are good, but devices do not connect through in case of weakening signal strength.
Anyone have ideas what I can try?
Could be a problem with two different radios?
Arcer C7: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9880. and RE305: MediaTek MT76x2E
When I manually connect to the Archer C7 or RE305, the mobile devices work fine.
Thanks if you can help!
Thank you for the information!
I reset the RE305 and reconfigured the WDS, but I only configured it for 5GHz (WDS-Client), and Accespoint 5Ghz/2.4GHz.
I must say that it works fine now. Roaming mobile devices when the signal is weak.
