I am thinking about moving to them for both business and home use.
Basically, I set up small business networks that need to have wireless capabilities for internal management as well as wireless for their customers on a completely different subnet. This is important to make sure there these networks are completely separated from each other per the Payment Card Industry Compliance Standards. I was planing on just setting up 2 routers on different subnets from the modem their ISP provides. Then, using APs from there to extend the range of the networks as needed. Some of the APs will be networked via ethernet and some may not be able to have cable drops run due to the old nature of the buildings.
I imagine there will be <10 users on the secure side of the wifi network and 50-100 on the guest side.
Any help and recs here is much appreciated. I know just enough to be dangerous. I currently have a Ubiquiti Unifi and a M2 PicoStation for testing. Most of our previous work was done with consumer grade Linksys equipment like the e3200 router and we may still incorporate some of this(also used a SonicWall here and there). Will be using WPA2 security across the board for the internal company networks.
For the guests, it'd be nice to have the wide open guest networks land on a page where they accept liability for browsing and then go the business's website as well. I know some devices offer this functionality but that's about it.
Setting up, or perhaps I should say, getting a router with w VLAN option is intriguing as well. Yes, I am fully aware I am all over the place.
Any help and recs are much appreciated. I get lost when talking about radio signals dBm, 1x1 and 2x2 MIMO, Mesh networking, channel width(I know it has to be 20Mhz), and channel frequency(I know to use 1, 6, and 11 since they don't overlap).
