Re: messing with meshes

Mesh APs are still not a panacea for crap WiFi performance

No, not panacea - solution.

It's not just signal strength that matters, but signal integrity

Yes, that's what a mesh means.

Methinks you haven't understood what a mesh is, exactly. It's not just a bunch of APs all shouting as loud as possible, it's an intelligently managed collection that acts more like one AP with distributed antennas, but with each one able to moderate its signal strength according to usage.
