    I was walking through my subdivision today and noticed I was still connected to my home WiFi about 300 feet from my home. Is there a ways to turn down the WiFi signal so it won’t connect from so far away? AC 86U as my mesh router with an AC 1900p as a satellite.

    Look at the bottom of the Wireless - Professional page. Some models have a "Tx power adjustment" slider there.

    Thanks. Set 2.4 to fair from balance. Other options were performance, good, balance, fair and power saving. I left 5g on performance.
