Re: Wireless Network Setup!

You have to provide mode information, what infrastrucutre in place.

 

1. What Router you have, what switches,

2. how many wireless AP in the area.

3. best way to approach was is QoS - but we need information to provide our suggestion.

For 12 Mbps Connection:

--> I have cisco 2911 router connected with ISP modem

--> I have cisco 2960 switch connected with router and APS.

--> I have 3 Unifi APs connected with switch.

My DHCP server is on Router and switch is just using for multiple aps connection. 

 

For 15 Mbps Connection:

--> I have netgear AP connect with ISP modem and this AP is give wired link to the meeting room as well as give wireless connection.

Hello,

 

what kind of connection is the second ISP using ? Is it possible to connect the second ISP modem to the 2911 router ? In order to have all your clients use both connections, you somehow need to connect both ISPs with each other in your network. If you can connect the second ISP modem to the 2911, you could use simple load balancing by installing two default routes, and use a script (or a time based access list) to prevent clients from using the meeting room connection when it is needed.

See if you can bring both the ISP Links to your router, so you can utlise best of both the links 12MB and 15MB.

 

how is your net gear connected to ISP via Ethernet ?

Can you post Router configuration and  how your network connected as HLD, so we can suggest you can move ISP Ethernet link to other router to achieve.

We are not familiar with the behaviour and specifics of UniFi APs.

Hello

The simplistic solution would be to add an additional layer 3 interface from your 2911 router into the Netgear and then policy route you lan traffic between the two isps.

To do this you may need to network translate your office traffic against the netgear ap subnet to establish connectivity but this all depends on your current setup if this would be applicable to do.

Also you dont state if the APs are autonomous or lightweight if the latter how are you managing them.

Can you post the configuration of  the 2911 rtr and switch and the aps if applicable.



kind regards
Paul
