I have 2 access points in my house due to screening by the walls, so how to make the Controller automatically log onto wireless networks that have been chosen already? I have to do it manually at present.
Even better why not make it roam from duet receiver to receiver with the best signal, if it was set to bridge mode before hand, this would save having to have 2 bridged routers.
Does anybody have a solution?

Controller Wireless Access

I have, in the past, tried to get the Controller to "roam" between the two WAPs. I found it would, but only if your two wireless networks have the same SSID and security code. I found (when I tried this) that it would have to lose the signal from one access point before it picked up the signal from the new one. Most decent WiFi client drivers have the ability to switch if the signal drops below a certain (usually user adjustable) threshold. No such luck with the Controller I am afraid.
In the end I gave up. With a lot of tweaking the antenna on one of the WAPs it will give just enough signal in the "screened" rooms to operate the Controller.
So in my case I have WAP1 providing the signal to Receiver 1 and Controller with WAP2 providing the signal to the (much less frequently used) Receiver in the screened room.Matt

In addition to TheLastMan's info, you should set both AP's with
same security and passcode
manually set them to different channels
