How to disconnect stuff from a extender

I bought the Air 4921 and its meant for one device only but other devices connect to the extender so is there any way to connect them to the main wifi and block from any device to join into it

Hi, @osvaldocruz097


Thanks for reaching out! You can connect that device with an Ethernet cable if you would like to but the extenders create a mesh network which means they are all seen as a single network.


Although our Smart Home Manager does allow you to see which one each device is connected to, we don't have a way to change it manually. Outside of moving the device or the extender, devices will always connect to the closest one. 


Let us know if you have any other questions!
