Devices connecting to poor signal

I'm having issues with my devices connecting to the Multi.  When my laptop is within a few get of the node it's connected to the other one further away, therefore poor signal strength and slower.  I was told that my devices would connect to the nearest and strongest source.  Apparently not.  Anyone else having these issues?

    Hi DirtyEddie,

    Can you share the network adapter driver version and model of your laptop?

    Please check the network adapter driver version of your laptop can support 802.11k/v or not.
    Due to most laptop may not support 802.11k/v and has stronger RF capability than mobiles, it could still connect on Node 2 when it move near Node 1. (Maybe you can turn off and turn on wireless feature of your laptop to reconnect when it is close to Node 1.)

    Hi Hanamichi,  Thanks for the reply.  I'm using a macbook pro retina 13" late 2015.  Not sure how to find the network adapter driver version.  But have have turned the wifi off and on.  Still no change.

    Hi DirtyEddie,

    I went through the literature on the subject.
    It seems macOS does not yet support 802.11k and 802.11v.
