I am trying to connect 150 smartphones (Samsung Galaxy S5) to a single wifi network, so that I can access streams from them on a computer on the LAN. What should my (multiple) access point (AP) setup be like to get the best access speed?
I need to access a file/stream from each phone whose address would be "http://192.168.1.X:8080/link" (x changes for each phone). And I cannot connect all my phones to the same wifi AP without tanking my access speeds. In what way should I configure 3 APs so my computer (also on the same network) can just see all the device ip addresses?
I found this Windows Phone video wall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcSd2xH_vS4) where they have a 14 x 14 grid of phones connected to a media server through 3 wifi APs. My use case is similar to this.
If I just daisy chain 3 APs with the first one as a master with DHCP enabled and the other two with static ips and they all have identical SSIDs, how can I control which Phone connects to which AP? (All the devices are in close proximity, and all three APs sit together about 5 feet from the installation, so its unlikely that a device is only in range of one AP)
Ideally, I want each AP connecting to a different set of 50-ish phones and I want to maintain decent enough access speeds, so that I can stream data in realtime to the computer.
Thanks for looking into my question! :)
