Re: Setting up WiFi for a large home

Just so i can confirm i'm understanding this right..
You're recommending i put in a Wireless Router in a central location and then set up AP's (i'm assuming you mean wireless ones) all around the house?

a few questions if you dont mind?
1. how do i configure the AP's to connect up to the wireless network broadcasted by my the Router?
2. Do you actually mean that i'll have multiple networks in the home, and then the device will switch between saved networks, as i move around?

This is how I have mine set up...

Internet > modem > router (w/ DHCP) + switch > wire to location > AP

The connection between the router (which has a swtch in it, probably) and the APs is by the Cat5 you installed previously.

Question #1: There will be a configuration menu to set up the AP.

Question #2: Short answer is yes.

Johns wiring is piss poor, see those sharp 90deg turns in the wire. You want to avoid that. Hopefully your house is wired properly. ;-P
