This Morning we are at Stratford upon Avon in Warwickshire working for terry-green trouble shooting a bridged wireless access point system. fault found and system left in good working order. We think the BT engineer must have been powering on and off the Netgear WN802T Access Points to quickly.
This Morning we are in North Leamington installing a Wireless Bridge system of Access Points, The main objective of this is to share the Buildings Internet connection on the first floor with a room in the cellar(mainly to be used with a building wide Sonos music system), We managed to accomplish this using only 2 access points one which has to be wired to the main router and the other in a strategic location in the cellar on route to the room requiring access.
The first attempt at this failed due to the signal interference so after a rethink we relocated the second access point to a room on the Ground floor this appears to be working well.
For the next job this morning we are at a guest house in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire installing a wireless bridge system of access points, The main objective of this is to share the buildings internet connection on the first floor with at the other end of the building for the guests to use, We managed to accomplish this using only 2 access points one which has to be wired to the main router and the other in a strategic location on the first floor on route to the room requiring the access.
We are now able to offer an installation service for bridged or single Access point setup.
Bridging access points is very useful for larger buildings that require full coverage of a wireless network or buildings with metal objects embeded in the walls as a way of moving the radio around the problem this requires a minimum of 2 Wireless access points with a bridge capacity.
Single access Points are mainly used to add wireless capability to an existing wired network system.
The access points are not very big typically about A5 in size and approximately 2 cm tall although you still need to allow room for the aerial at the back most can be used wall mounted as well as free standing.
