I have a project to cover a really big house, and the backyard patio with Wifi. It's 2 story, a little over 5000sf, and the existing modem is not centrally located.
I've tested an Asus RT-AC68p for coverage, and it is not powerful enough, so I need a way to extend the Wifi.
If this were a business, I'd set up a Fortigate Firewall, and have drops ran to various places to connect a managed WAP.
This is the type of seamless coverage I'm looking to provide, but I can't run drops in the house.
Need a solution that can extend a wireless signal seamlessly (Same SSID, and not drop the connection as they stream music/video while walking around the house). A wireless LAN controller, that can manage the WAP's via WiFi would be great. Does someone make such an animal?
