I've setup wired networks before but I have this task I'm trying to accomplish:
Basically, I'm trying to setup wireless connectivity in an office area. It's quite big with 2 2 storey buildings and would require 10-15 routers if I put one every 50 meters. The goal is to have a WLAN with WAN access in every office.
So, I was planning on hard-wiring a router, say ROUTER0 to the WAN modem then put another router (ROUTER1) in repeater mode 50 meters away until ROUTERn. I will then have 1 modem that connects to WAN, 1 router that connects to the WAN modem and repeaters. However, I'm a little confused. The question is, can a repeater be connected to another repeater? For example, ROUTER1 is a repeater; can ROUTER2 connect to ROUTER1 then ROUTER3 connects to ROUTER2 and so on until there's wireless everywhere?
I've been reading around and I've noticed many articles suggesting Access Points over Repeaters. But, I don't fully understand this. I'd appreciate some clarifications.
So, how would I go about setting up this wireless network?
