Our “office” is a condo we own which is 2500 sq feet on the 77th floor in Toronto. I have 3 Google Wifi access points right now which I’m probably reducing to 2 as the one nothing ever connects to since it’s not needed. We love the Google Wifi because it’s so easy and just works. I’ve tried Ubiquiti before but I had issues where devices just would never jump to another AP, even if the signal was poor, where as Google Wifi just works.
Our primary Internet connection is a business cable 500/20, and then we have a secondary fibre connection at 250/250. We’re looking to potentially offer Peplink products to our customers, so I’m testing them out right now. Right now I just have both connections going into the Peplink, then the Peplink into the Google Wifi. This is working, but all IP addresses etc are from the Google Wifi vs the Peplink, which is fine, but I’m just curious the best way to do this.
Is it fine to leave it as is? Or should I disable DHCP on the Peplink and just assign a Static IP to the primary Google Wifi AP? Or should I disable DHCP on the Google Wifi and instead just use them as AP’s only? I feel like using them as AP’s only might defeat the purpose of having them but I’m not sure sure what if any functionality I’d lose by doing this. Just curious how most would do it (and if possible I’d appreciate answers that are based around this set up, vs telling me to buy Cisco or ditch the Google Wifi etc. It works amazing for us and is not going anywhere).
