Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. Give me a few minutes to look over your question and I will respond shortly.
I would highly recommend Ubiquiti Access Points for your environment. You can set up one of their APs and then they chain off of each other so there is no need for new switches elsewhere in the building. You can also use your existing router. They work great in high interference situations. The last implementation I did with these APs was in an Ethanol plant and 3 APs covered about 300 yards through a massive amount of metal piping and buildings. They are fairly inexpensive too. You can find a Unifi AC Pro on Amazon for $169 a piece. The software is very easy to set up and it walks you through configuring them all. All you need is a network connection to the first one and then power for the rest. You can find information and the software for these devices here.
Here is the link to the Amazon price.
You'll just plug in the first Ubiquiti AP into the router. That first AP will configure the others that you buy. There is a Unifi software on the Ubiquiti site that you install while on the same network; it will walk you through the steps. I'd recommend one for each floor and just use one SSID (SignIn). Will each apartment have a different tenant?
You'll just install the Unifi software on a laptop that is connected to the router.
Here is the link to the software. Click on UniFi at the top. There is a Demo that you can familiarize yourself with the product.
Yes, that is correct.
