Please help me decide. Here’s the situation. I live in an area where all they have is DSL, max speed is about 10 Mbps. So I went ahead and got 3 DSL lines, to be used with Peplink Balance 30. Now I need reliable, strong wifi signal in every corner of the house (about 3,000 sqft, one story with upstairs loft and basement), construction is wood, stone, and LP siding).
I’ve purchased AP Pro (outside model) and tested wifi signal by mounting it to the back of the house). Configured for max signal and power boost enabled:
Outside signal strength is between 90% and 75% in the back yard, and about 50% front of the house.
Inside the house signal strength is between 80% and 50% in some rooms.
Considering the limited DSL speed I have, I can’t afford weak’ish wifi signal inside the house. I work from home, on a laptop. Need strong, reliable wifi.
What are my options?
Would getting AP One for inside the house help? Configure it with WDS with AP Pro? Wouldn’t it cut the bandwidth by 50%? Or is it only if it’s connected wirelessly? I can definitely connect AP One with Ethernet.
I also considered placing AP Pro inside the house. But heard that it’s ‘dangerous’ due to very strong signal, radiation levels and all that.
Get rid of AP Pro completely, and get a pair of AP One, each connected via Ethernet and WDS enabled?
