Crave more power, control, and productivity?

Re: Using Access Points (APs) for Home WiFi - LIVE STREAM - 5/21 10AM PST

As a novice, I wish there would've been some topographical diagrams included in the discussion.

I have the AC 1750 C6300 Wi-Fi cable modem router that I'm going to add the WAC505 AP to, heres' my question;

Can I add my N600 WN2500RP Wi-Fi range extender to this set up? for outdoor support?

If so, how?

Thanks

Hi remiehondje,

 

Good day!

 

Welcome to NETGEAR Community!

 

First of all, we do apologize for the inconvenience of not getting back to you immediately due to the back log in the system. Only the R6300v2 router is capable of this feature called Facebook WiFi.

Hi RapyD,

 

Good day!

 

Welcome to NETGEAR Community!

 

First of all, we do apologize for the inconvenience of not getting back to you immediately due to the back log in the system. You may add the WN2500RP in your network but this is not for outdoor usage. You may want to check our Orbi outdoor satellite and set it in extender mode.

Re: Using Access Points (APs) for Home WiFi

Thank you. I couldn't watch the video until the end. It will be a long little problem. Let's say I have 1 wifi modem and 3 wfi routers. If I use 3 different routers as a wifi range extender (repeater), I will get a good quality, stable and uninterrupted connection from the wifi that has been repeated 3 times. I tried this scenario by repeating the double, at least 2 times a day I have the problem of breaking and not being connected. 
Also, would too many wireless devices have a health problem?

No, not at all...

...as you have already figured out. 

 

The thread is about using access points from the business/pro line - this implies that a wired and switched Ethernet infrastructure is in place, or will be established, ideally using PoE/PoE+ to match the power requirements.

Who knows. Avoiding a wireless backhaul for repeaters - leaving alone the performance loss of your aged devices sharing the same radio for both - will allow to configure the access point distribution for much smaller areas, so called mini- or micro-cells where much lower power can be configured - so less emission, as only shorter distances have to be covered.
