    I just bought one of these to extend the network of my Asus RT-68U. By default it wants to create separate SSID’s for 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies, in addition to the original router’s SSID. So, I have 3 SSID’s for my devices to choose from. I’m not sure if it would be better to combine all the SSID’s or keep it separated. With separate SSID’s, will the clients automatically switch to the SSID with the best signal and even differentiate between the appropriate frequencies? An Apple TV that gets weak signal from the original router would be better off with the repeater’s 5 GHz band and since the Apple TV is stationary, I suppose I could manually connect it with that SSID, but what about my phone or an iPad?
