I hope you can help me with a problem bothering me for long now.
I have a small home network with two routers. Both broadcast a same SSID, router/modem "1" in channel 6, router "2" in channel 1 (see network map below). The problem starts when I roam through wifi with a gadget. As you can see, I have devices connected in both routers. If I connect in router "2" wireless for example, and move to router "1", I lose network access to anything connected to router "2". The opposite apparently do not occur. The only way of solving is restarting router "2"
- Router "1" provides access to internet, the local IP is 192.168.25.1, DHCP is on. There is reserved IP's for router "2" and the media server.
- Router "2" have the IP 192.168.25.2, DHCP and NAT are off.
- Media Server have a static IP reserved in router "1"
The one and only solution I find for this problem is having two completely separated wireless signals, different SSID, but that solution is unwanted since I move a lot through the house. When using the same SSID, the roaming mechanism works just fine, I can get from bedroom to living room and the access point changing works very well but, as I said I lost contact with the bedroom router "2".
The problem happens with every wireless device on the house.
I feel like I'm doing a simple mistake, but I can't see what is really the problem. I hope one of you can help me out of this.
