I have 5 whole home discs.
Disc 1 is wired into, and right next to the router. Disc 2 is almost directly above Disc 1, in the loft, connected by wifi to Disc 1. Disc 3 (also loft) is behind about 3 walls line of sight from Disc 1, and 1 wall from Disc 2, but still insists on connecting to Disc 1 directly, with a poor quality connection. I've now run an ethernet cable from Disc 2 to Disc 3, and Disc 3 persists in connecting to Disc 1 by wifi directly, ignoring the ethernet link. Why is this?
Supplementary question; Discs 4 & 5 are very close to Disc 3, but won't daisy chain from Disc 3, instead insisting on a poor connection from Disc 1.
So far I have tried varying the boot up sequence to have the far discs power on last, but they still connect to Disc 1, and also waiting days & weeks for the system to settle to no avail.
1) can I use ethernet to connect Disc 2 to Disc 3?
2) how can I force the system into a mesh state to daisy chain far discs instead of everything connecting by a terrible wifi connection to the master disc?
