We currently have a wired lan which goes to two seperate but nearby buildings.
We also have a wireless router which allows Internet access to customers but is not on the Lan.
We want to install a wireless access point in each of these two buildings to enable wireless access.
Our Lan requires Static IP's. The lan is currently using a 10.0.60.0 scheme.
The signals fron these two access points WILL overlap.
Is the way to get this working as follows??:
Set the 1st Access Point to something like 10.0.70.0. Use the same subnet as the LAN. Use the LANS gateway and DNS.
Set the 2nd Access Point to something like 10.0.80.0. Use the same subnet as the LAN. Use the LANS gateway and DNS.
Set the SSID to be the same on both of these access points so that it appears transparent when roaming around the property.
Is this the best way to do this? If not...what wil work? Appreciate your help as always!
NOTE: Tried this on one of the access points today and while I could cruise the internet I could no longer ping the access point by its IP. Is that normal?
