Hi,Thank you for Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question.Please could you provide a floor plan that will help me plan what you need.
Hello there I looked at your plans. Yes indeed it is always better to run cabling. You also don't have to contend with the signal speed being halved by using extenders or repeaters.
What I would do would be to run Cat6 cables to ALL the rooms from a single point where you would put the network switch.You may be able to us a WAP to service two rooms that have a common wall but you will have problems when there are many walls separating the rooms.Netgear make good products as is what I use.
Yes that is correct The router will provide IP addresses to all devices fed from the switchAll access points can have the same SSID (network name) but the channels must be different. You should set the APs to use chs 1,6,11 for the 2.4GHz channels and 5GHz if you can. Use the default 20MHz channel widths to get the maximum use of channel space.Your devices will need to be able to receive the 5GHz channels should you choose to deploy them.
If the APs have auto channel then use that so the APs will hop to the clearest channels.If you have more than 3 APs then the fourth can use the same channel as the AP which is the furthest away to minimise interference ie the loft AP can use the same channel as the AP which is on the ground floor which has the most walls floors between them if you get my drift
Hello there, that looks spot on. The router will give each device their own IP address via the switch. In order for an access point to be used in this fashion for the TV it would need to be a wireless bridge (which this AP can do but hard wiring is best).Those APs are good & are what I use.I would just use the APs for mobile devices and hard wire any static device (like your TV) to the incoming Cat6 cablesStay away from home plug solutions which use the house electric wiring as they can cause and be susceptible to interference. Hard wiring is always the best :-)Please kindly rate my service if I have helped you today and so that I can be paid for my time.
