BT Wi-Fi Extender 610

I have just bought the BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 610 to improve coverage in my house.

Connected to my Home Hub5 that has SSID BTHub5-5G2Z, it adds SSIDs EXT2-BTHub-5G2Z and EXT5-BTHub5-5G2Z

Whilst this is fine for fixed devices, my phone and tablet that can be used anywhere in the house does not roam from one SSID to the other as they are different!

Is there a way to set the Extender 610 SSIDs to BTHub5-5G2Z and let the mobile device automatically connect to the strongest signal?

They won't roam seamlessly even if the SSID's are the same.

I think only the BT Whole Home Wifi system allows seamless roaming, at a price.

You can access the Extender's config by entering http://mybtdevice.home into your browser.
