Hello. I need to strengthen my wireless coverage in our 3 story home. Please confirm to install 1 WAX620 on each floor (3 total) connected to a GS308EP PoE+ (123W) switch are compatible.
Connect to what router?
You want to wire these repeaters as Access Points to a GS308EP switch?
Why did you pick network managed devices from Netgear's business range? From messages that appear here, they don't always sit nicely in domestic environments.
A more common choice would be a Mesh system that can create a seamless WiFi network.
Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
The switch will connect to a Linksys EA8500 router (for now).
You want to wire these repeaters as Access Points to a GS308EP switch? That is my thinking unless there is a problem with this config.
Why did you pick network managed devices from Netgear's business range? I am seeking a rugged, industrial grade configuration. I like the coverage and range of the WAX devices. All APs will be installed with hardwire ethernet cable back to the switch. I am working to hardwire all my "fixed" devices....TVs, printers, LAN storage, pool control, etc to reduce the wifi load.
I have studied the mesh network offerings promoted for home applications. They seem priced high to me and the WAX devices seems like a stronger, more cost effective solution.
Thanks for writing to us.
