i have a building with three floors and they want to have a seperate wifi network for floor 1 , 2 , 3. (ssid = wifi_floor1, wifi_floor2 and wifi_floor3)
as it stands i have internet froma cable modem feeding into a basic basic switch which then is pluged into three outlets corresponding to one outlet on each floor. on each floor i have installed a basic router to handle the wifi.
this setup does not work as each router is trying to control the assignment of ip addresses to the devices that connect. i have tried to install one router as the designated dhcp host and install the routers like access points but apparently it did not work very well.
i am curious how i can get the three routers to behave like three seperate networks on one switch or if there is a better way to accomplish this
