My home network works pretty well except for the WIFI, which drops and hangs a lot. I can get access to a couple of Google WiFI that might be a good solution for me and my 190sqm house.
My current arrangement:
- 200 mbps fibre with 2 Degrees, with a FRITZ!BOX 7490 plugged into the ONT. It's installed in a metal box in my garage, which is the opposite end of the house from where we spend time and the WiFI signal barely reaches. Also plugged into the LAN ports on this router are:
- 4 port switch with PoE to run my 3 security cameras (easier/cheaper than installing power in the ceiling)
- TP-Link RE350 AC1200 Access point (using the network ports wired into my house) for my living area. This is the wireless network that gets the most use and according to online reviews it should be pretty good as an Access Point. But I have all kinds of issues with it and I'm always having to power cycle it and it's driving me crazy.
- Another 4 port gigabit switch off one of the ports wired into my house, so that my PC and PS4 have an ethernet connection
Would two google WIFI help me achieve a better setup in my house? Would I still be better off using the LAN ports to my PS4 etc or will the wifi be almost as good? Advice wanted on how i can best arrange my network please :D
