Should I use a router upstairs and an Access Point downstairs
Posted on 2009-05-11
I am setting up a small building with an Office upstairs and two very small stores downstairs on the main level. THe office upstairs will have 2 main higher end computers. THe downstairs will have a computer at each of the counters (one in each of the stores) and a public computer in the store to look up specialty items. Also in the future the plan is to have a small internet cafe on a small deck right outside one of the stores.
The building is going to be fed via DSL. I was planning on having a 4 port wireless Linksys N router upstairs in the main office to run the two computers via network cable off off the N router and running two more cables down to one of the stores underneath the office to run one of the counter computers and a wireless access point for future internet cafe. DOes this sound correct? Am I correct in assuming that I would have an access point near the outside wall on the first (main) floor for the future internet cafe and it would be connected to the N router upstairs (2nd floor) in the Main office where the DSL will be coming in?
