First (minor) victory of 2022!

We've been having some wifi issues in our three story home (wifi router is on third floor for reasons; reception on first floor was spotty. I tried using a powerline wifi extension, and it was ok, but switching networks was a PITA.

My main router is a Synology RT2600ac (great unit-very happy with it), and it will form a mesh with their MR2200ac. I bought the MR2200ac maybe a month ago, but had been putting off actually installing it-thinking it would be a major pain.

It was nearly painless. They have a wizard in the IOS app that walks you through the steps. Turns out that it first updates the firmware in the MR2200ac to match the firmware in the RE2600ac. That update failed the first time; I tried it again, and it just worked.

And now our stream problems seem to be gone. Time will tell, but the intermittent stuttering and such that we had before adding in the mesh unit are gone.

I declare victory!
