    Edimax' Gemini RE11 AC1200 Dual-Band Home Wi-Fi Roaming Kit takes a different, and cheaper, approach to building a mesh wireless network.

    Ugh, why won't any of the vendors support the standards that help roaming?

    I've done that with my setup using two APs connected via powerline, but am waiting for someone to support 802.11k, v, and r before I upgrade.

    Is there a true technical reason - or just community/tribal knowledge?

    Tribal Knowledge is often wrong...

    Some do. It's a work in process. But these standards require implentation on the client to work. Edimax' technique works with any client. It doesn't address stubborn clients that won't roam until a connection disappears, though.

    I suppose it's useful units, because give us 802.11ac standard, easy installation and roaming of course.
