Good day all,
My girlfriend and I are doing renovation on an old house with her family in Quebec. It's 3 different units in the same building and we want to share the same internet connection because since we are far in the wood we need to have satellite connection and we will split the cost. I don't think a single wifi router can do the job because there are many concrete wall between units and the area to cover is more than 150'.
I need help to setup my network properly.
I was thiking about doing it this way but maybe I'm wrong so I would like to have you guy reviewing my setup and help me if possible.
----------------------------_________ Wifi Router 1 (1 TV, 2 laptop, Xbox.mobile phones will access this router)
Internet ------> Switch -------- Wifi Router 2 (laptop and mobile phone connected to read email and internet search)
_________________ -------------- Wifi Router 3 (laptop and mobile phone connected to read email and internet search)
(To make sure we understand each other : Internet modem will be connected to a swtich and all 3 routeurs will be connect to this switch).
I don't care if a computer connected on Router 1 cannot share file with a computer connected on Router 2. If it can that's a plus but if it can't it's not an issue. All we want it's all devices connected could access to internet without major configuration because I'm a beginner in networking and I will manage all issue because others don't know anything except google, youtube and facebook if you know what I mean.
Please note that I'm also working from home so maybe it could be a good thing to separate all networks.
I also read that it it's possible to connect this way
Internet ----> Router1 ----> Router2 -----> Router3
Please tell me which setup is the best (less configuration) and most stable with pros and cons if possible.
No wiring has been done but it needs to be done asap to close the wall so I would like to have the good network map before doing it.
If you have any question on need any further detail please do not hesitate.
Also if you can tell me which Switch/Router (if needed) to buy, or any specification it will help me a lot.
Thanks for your help!
