I live in an apartment with 2 floors and the floor seems to block nearly all of the
signal from upstairs. I currently have a set of home plugs with an access point plugged in
downstairs. Setting the same SSID doesn't seem to help and requires forced reconnects now
and again so I currently just use separate SSIDs and connect manually.
Is there any consumer access points that allow seamless transfer between them, each with the
same SSID? Preferably wireless AC but depending on the cost Wireless N should be fine.
I know Apple has problems because in the consumer environment devices are designed to hang on to an access point rather than roam, although this behaviour was modified in iOS 8 and 9 which roam a bit better. Apple in the enterprise roams a lot better and is more configurable.
Don't know about Android.
Windows PC's allow you to make their roaming more aggressive in the Network Adapter Advanced properties.
