I just installed my first home Ruckus Wifi network. Still learning and trying to troubleshoot. I have 2 R550s one main and the other client AP. I was getting decent output from the main AP but the client was giving very poor wifi signal even close to the AP. It is all hardwired and not on a mesh.
I turned off the 2.5 Ghz on both the units and then the signal strength improved. Still surprisingly the signal strength is not as good as the old Netgear and D link home routers!!! So I guess I have to tweak my settings to see how to improve the signal strength. I have the following questions:
1) There is a second ethernet port [next to the POE port] in the R550. I though I could daisy chain my TV from this port. But there is no wired connection showing up! How do I get wired connection from this second port? Do I have to adjust any settings in the R550?
2) How do I change the password for my wifi network [not the admin password, but password for individual users to log in to the system]?
3) I have three levels in my house each roughly 1800 to 2000 sq ft. Before I was able to cover and get decent signal from my old Dlink and Netgear [as AP]. Now I am able to cover the same space with my 2 R550, but only after I turn off the 2.5 Ghz button, with this being on, the slave/AP seems to have poor wifi coverage. I am now getting very poor signal in my basement [I was getting 75 to 90 Mbps with my old set up and now getting only 7-14 mbps in the basement].
So the question is, will I be able to use my old Netgear or Dlink as an AP along with the Ruckus wifi network?
I have a Ubiquiti Edgerouter ER-4 for router function.
Thanks for your reply.
