I am trying to improve wireless performance at a clients home.  Currently they have a Linksys RV082 set up as their main router.  They also have 4 additional basic Linksys WRT54G routers set up at various points in the home that seem to be failing.  My plan was to put in 3 Apple airport Extreme routers in place of the Linksys routers.  I am wondering if they really need the Linksys RV082 in their network at all as they aren't running a business.  Their is a large area to cover with a big house and the usage is purely Laptops, ipads, phones. The Linksys RV082 is only 110/100Mbps LAN Ports.  I could keep this in the set up and just add the Apple routers in on Bridge mode.  I could also remove the Linksys RV082 and start fresh with Apple Airport Extreme routers and add in a 10/1000Mbps Switch if needed.   Any ideas would be appreciated.

Was there a reason for them getting a dual wan port router?  That usually indicates two ISPs.  Is this the case?


Might want to consider WDS supporting equipment if replacing everything.
