Looks you have a coverage concern,
All Access point have a coverage limit (called also coverage cell) that may vary from environment to another,
if you need to cover more areas in your environment I think you will need to add more APs, and if you have a lack of cabling around your home, you can run you instant APs on a mesh fashion,
check out this article, it talks about mesh deployment:
@cfresh44 To follow up to that link below we do not recommend using mesh in a multi-hop as your bandwidth will decrease by 50%. Portal > Point1 no loss of bandwidth. Portal > Point1 > Point2 50% loss of bandwidth for devices that connect to Point2.
thanks for the responses. i am bad at explaining things like this. let me try again. i have a frontier fios router/wifi modem. my intial set up for the ap11 said to hardwire the ap11 into the modem/router. i did that and the AP11 works great. no problems. my question is how do i get it to work on the other side of my house without it being hardwired. i was just going to plug it in with the power cord for power but not hardwire because my rj45 cable will not reach that far. does that make sense? or is that not possible?
In order to mesh, you do need a second AIO AP. The mesh connection happens AIO AP to AIO AP. You cannot mesh the AIO AP with your router's wireless.
@cfresh44 You would need to purchase a second AP and you could place it on the other side of your house without an RJ45 ethernet connection. You need to have one AP connected via RJ45 connection.
