    I was pretty sure that AiMesh should help keeping existing connections alive when I switches from one AiMesh node to another, but seems like it doesn't work as I expected. If I do the following:

    1. open, let say, ssh connection being connected to the AiMesh router
    2. move to the bedroom (another AiMesh node)
    after that the ssh connection always broken. The same if I run games like Clash of Clans, etc - switching node causes disconnection from the game server.

    I'm wondering if missed something or this an expected behaviour?
    If this is an expected, well... I had the very same behaviour with my previous configuration - no AiMesh, two routers with the same SSID name. What's the difference then?

    Well, I've enabled it... then disabled. Now re-enabled again - visually, the phone switched AiMesh nodes almost instantly, but it doesn't help to keep an existing ssh connection.

    It’s more a workaround, but maybe try Mosh instead of SSH?

    Could you try to disable NAT acceleration in Switch Control @ WebGUI?

    Thanks! That works and now I'm able to switch AiMesh nodes without disconnection.
    What is the magic behind this option? :)

    According the issue in NAT acceleration, we are working on it now and this is a template solution.

    I don't test it as AP, maybe you can try it.
