Wifi bands for multi-router multi-ssid setup

Hi all. I've been struggling to get wifi roaming working well between two Archer C7s, and I'm puzzled about what the best approach to selecting wifi bands would be for this setup. I have three VLANs with matching wifi ssids:

LAN
IOT
Guest

and I have a couple of questions:

  1. Should the three ssids on the same radio have different frequency bands or the same frequency band?

  2. Should the same ssid on the main router and on the dumb AP have the same frequency band, or nearby bands, or completely separated bands?

All help appreciated!
Cheers,
Martin

Hi

on one radio you could have only one freq. So, three SSID will be on same freq

main AP and dumb AP should have different freq, ex: ch1 and ch10
this way, two AP will not interfere with each other

Thanks! That's what I needed to know. I'll see if that fixes my problems.

That did it. Thanks again!
