I have searched the net, but I am not really sure how to even ask this question(!) I am NOT a network engineer!
I currently have a mish-mash of three WiFi routers in my house that comprise the "mesh" and one main (actual) router (that provides a WiFi connection as well). All "mesh" routers are hard-wired (through their non-WAN ports) to a switch and ultimately an openwrt router that handles the DHCP, DNS, etc. They all share the same access point name and credentials so you can walk around and seamlessly connect to the different wifi connections. All wired connections and hardware are Gig-E.
Here is my hardware:
Linksys E4200v2/EA4500 (openwrt kernel version 4.4.14)
Three "mesh" routers running their stock firmware:
2x Netgear G54 WGR614v10
1x TP-Link 450N Wireless N
My problems are:
1) The routers are slow and need to be upgraded (I hope to get used ones from ebay)
2) I would like to have a guest network to partition my IoT devices from my more sensitive data and servers as well as provide a network for people visiting.
My questions are:
1) What routers would you recommend.
2) Can you point me in the right direction to implement the configuration?
thanks in advance!
