Assign Device to EERO access point

Hello. I’d like to be able to assign my devices to a specific EERO access point. For example, if my (ROKU) TV is the the Office, I’d like it to always connect to the “office” AP.

sometimes the TV will connect to an eero AP that is far away from it.

  • Devices (clients) determine what AP they connect to.  An AP can't and shouldn't instruct a device who to connect to.

      untrue. If I want to assign a device to a certain AP that should absolutely be allowed. As the admin of my own network, I should be able to assign devices to AP. 

    • JustJoe incorrect.  Allowing AP's to direct clients who to connect to both violates WiFi certification (though many companies do it through MAC blocking) and is a security issue.  If you are dissatisfied with the logic your client uses, you need your client's manufacturer to address that issue.

      txgunlover incorrect, I don’t want to allow the AP to assign it! I want to assign it to always connect to a certain AP.
