Network at my parents house…
This weekend, I’ll be going to my parents house to help them with a garage sale. While I’m there, I think I’m going to setup a new wireless network of sorts.
At my mom’s house, I’ll put a new AP, then at my sister’s place a new bridge, then at the barn where a guest room will be (after I remodel, etc), I’m putting another bridge.
Inside the barn, there will be a router which will give me access out there. My sister already has a router, so I’m just replacing her bridge.
This will result in a better and more stable network there. My sister should be able to finally watch netflix as well as game better. :)
I’ll post a map and what I did once I have it done.
It’ll be the following:
Outside at my mom’s: Ubiquiti BULLET2 AP, Alfa Hi-Gain Omni-Directional Outdoor 12dBi Antenna - 2.4/2.5GHz 3.7-Feet long Weatherproof antenna With N Female Connector
Outside at my sister’s and the barn: Ubiquiti Nanostation LOCO M2 Outdoor MIMO 2x2 802.11g/n
I’m just deciding if I need surge protection or not on the Nanostations. It’ll have a surge protector (for strikes) between the antenna and the AP at my mom’s. I’m just debating about the protectors on the Nanostations. It’s an extra hundred dollars that I don’t know if I want to spend… There’s no real reason to other than to protect the inside router. Surge protection on Ethernet won’t really protect the Nanostation… #firstworldproblems
Should I put Ethernet surge protectors on the Nanostation or just roll the dice/take my chances?
