Band and Router steering may help in the configuring of the network for the best possible speeds and connectivity.
Router steering directs devices to connect to the router instead of MeshPoints when possible, even if the router signal is weaker. This feature is disabled by default, but enabling it may provide faster speeds in some instances.
Band Steering detects clients that are capable of 5GHz connection and steers them to that frequency. By doing this, it leaves the 2.4GHz band less congested for the devices that are not capable of connecting to the 5GHz band. This feature is enabled by default.
To enable or disable band and router steering on the AmpliFi router, follow these steps:
1. Open the AmpliFi app.
2. Tap the picture of the AmpliFi router.
3. Tap Wireless under the Settings subsection.
4. Scroll down. You can tap the Band Steering or Router Steering toggle to enable or disable the feature.
5. Tap the check mark in the upper right corner to save these settings.
