Wireless / Wired access point
Posted on 2013-12-01
I have a friend who I set up a video security system for in his small business. His cable internet comes in on the top floor and that is where is router is installed. He uses it for about 4 devices on the top floor, some wired and some wireless.
He wants to install a computer and a wireless Point of Sales terminal on the ground floor shop. The wireless signal is sketchy by the time you get to the ground floor. I was thinking of installing an access point for him. I am unable to find the specs I am looking for, but think that maybe they are just advertising the products the wrong way.
So here is what I need.
A Wireless access point that offers wifi extender type services. Meaning that is should extend the same network not create a new one (like connecting a wireless router would do). I can not have double netting, it will break the security system.
I need it to have at least two wired switch ports that again, will only be switching, not routing (NO DOUBLE NAT).
I would like to spend as little as possible but get something decent. Maybe the $50 - $100 range.
