The Next Big Thing in Wi-Fi? Multiple access points in every home

Re: messing with meshes

Yes, yes, yes. Wireless repeaters are readily available. In my experience, they're universally shit though.

However, what this article seems to be about is having such repeaters automatically choosing the best channels, factoring in neighbours etc. And giving remote techs the means to monitor/adjust them as needed. Like noticing that one repeater has poor backhaul to your router, so although the client is connected to the extended wifi nicely, they get crap throughput.
