That's a good point thanks M. Then I just have to do a bit of work to get the VPN up and working again, and delegate DNS, so not a huge amount of work. I guess I'll call 2degrees some time when I have an hour free...
Maybe you could value your time and buy a Ruckus or Aruba or Unifi...
Yeah I could. I don't know much about them, so it's a trade-off between the annoyance of this cutting out occasionally, talking to 2degrees who will want me to do heaps of stuff that will probably not fix it, and spending the time to understand another WAP product and get it installed.
I have a huge roof space for example, and ethernet up there, I could easily put a WAP up there. But I might need a POE injector and not sure how much effort is otherwise required. So it might take a bit of time to understand, not sure cost of hardware, then time to get it set up.
How much would it cost for appropriate WAP / POE if required to put it up in the ceiling space, which does get hot? Do I need to do network changes or just plug it in?
