I'm considering to set-up a hotspot(With Mikrotik RB951) in a place that has 4 floors so I should extend the wireless signal. I bought 4 wireless Routers (TP-Link WR841HP) That I want to put in each floor (200 square-meter) and I need roaming as well. with two solutions, I can implement it :
- by cabling the routers together
- using WDS
it is better that I cabling but performance is more important. less that 200 users use this hotspot to connect max 8Mbps internet connection. My questions listed below :
- Apparantly WDS is not wifi Certified and it has come with some issues. does it mean I cannot trust this protocol? (by knowing that all router are the same)
- If my first (main) router is in the first floor and I want to connect fourth floor router to it, can I just connect it to the third floor and it direct me to the main router (1st) or I should see the signal of first router directly? if I can how about performance?
- comparison between these solutions?
I would appreciate if you help me to find a good practice? Tnx
