Several devices connected to the AirTies Extender arbitrarily switch back to the Gateway at random times
I have 10 devices on a 1 Gbps network and in general, no bandwidth problem. I have an AirTies extender outside of the master bedroom that provides consistent and solid 100+ Mbps signal on 5 GHz throughout the bedroom. At least two devices in the bedroom regularly switch from the Extender back to the Gateway. The Extender is about 3 feet outside of the room, between the room and the Gateway. The Gateway signal barely creeps into the room. I would say the Gateway is about 60 feet away. It doesn't surprise me that the iphone XSMax would periodically switch to the Gateway and hold on to it, but the AT&T TV box, which is stationary and about 6 ft away from the Extender does as well. It seems as though there may be a maximum number of devices attached to the Extender of 4. There also seems to be a preference to drop XSMax and the AT&T TV (the two most important devices that require good bandwidth) and not the other devices, which are all much older and not used much (2nd gen appletv that is not even on, a 2016 macbook air, and a very old ipad that is rarely used). I haven't confirmed an event that causes the switch but it almost seems as if it's the connection of a 5th device to the extender network.
