I'm helping to improve wifi coverage for a local charitable organisation. They currently have a Fritz!Box as their router/AP in the office, but it doesn't cover very far. My plan is to run cable to another part of the building, and install another AP there.
Based on what I can get relatively cheaply, and because I prefer the ability to install alternative OS images (eg OpenWRT), I'm suggesting this: https://cdlnz.com/BR-6478ACV2 - is Edimax considered an ok brand? I saw another thread that seemed to be recommending not using a router as an AP, but I didn't see any reasoning - is it just because the routers tend to be too 'consumer grade'? Is it likely to cause me/them problems?
I haven't actually done a huge amount of WiFi stuff; I use cable wherever I can and generally get away with a single AP at home. All I need to do to allow roaming is to use the same SSID/password on both, right?
