please help me out!!!!
I live in this three-story building,
one household basically.
I have 500mbps with OPTIMUM (only choice in the neighborhood..sucks!)
basically we have main line of internet on the 2nd floor and 1st and 3rd floor is using the networks off of it.
So the setup I have now is
3rd floor: using wifi off of 2nd floor + LINKSYS RE6300 AC1200 wifi extender for dead zones
==>8-10mbps for using wifi extender in the dead zones and upto 90mbps for using wifi off of 2nd floor
2nd floor: MAIN MODEM and ROUTER (Linksys mr9000 AC3000 allowing upto 25 devices) ===>upto 420mbps
1st floor: using wifi off of 2nd floor + NETGEAR wn3000rpv3 wifi repeater for dead zones
==> 20mbps for dead zones with NETGEAR repeater, and 240 mbps for using 2nd floor wifi
but I have this extra D-LINK DIR866L from optimum cable which I don’t use (because i replaced it with LINKSYS MR9000 AC3000)
(and can also exchange it to SAGEMCOM optimum router anytime for free, Sagemcom is supposed to faster than DLINK DIR866L)
so 1st and 3rd floor are using wifi extender (UNWIRED) and leeching off of 2nd floor signal, pretty much
and this has not been too stable, so,
I am trying to WIRE everything (with ethernet cable) and use the extenders AS WIRELESS ACCESS POINTS (WAP)
SAGEMCOM or D-LINK DIR866L router as the 1st floor WAP
and LINKSYS RE6300 AC 1200 as the 3rd floor WAP
and obviously these will be both WIRED with CAT 7 ethernet cable from 2nd floor main router
(or should I connect it straight from the modem?)
How does this sound?
at the end of the day, it will be like
3rd floor: using wifi off of 2nd floor + LINKSYS RE6300 AC1200 WIRED to main modem/router from 2nd floor
2nd floor: MAIN MODEM and ROUTER (Linksys mr9000 AC3000)
1st floor: using wifi off of 2nd floor + SAGEMCOM or D-LINK router WIRED to main modem/router from 2nd floor
does this sound plausible?
or would it deteriorate the whole signal power for the entire building?
Usually WAPs are better than Wifi Repeater/extenders, no?
Please help me out, thanks!!
