Multiple uplinks, multiple access points.

This was mainly a fun, weekend project in rural mid-Wales. The goals were:

  • replace the 2.4GHz only TP-Link access points with dual-band models
  • improve wireless coverage in a building whose walls have high signal attenuation
  • extend the wireless network to cover the garden and workshop
  • test whether 4G connectivity could be used to supplement the poor ADSL service available in the area
  • gain familiarity with CAPsMAN v2

A small team of Network Moose were enlisted to help.
