Trying to set up a wide range local network for an event


#1

I’ve been loaned three PepWave Max HD routers, which are slight overkill - but if something is worth doing, it’s worth overdoing!

What I’d like is a big flat WiFi network across a football stand, and surrounding area, but with no internet connectivity.

One option would be to use the WAN side links to connect to some central WAP (or one of the PepWaves?), and simply bridge the WLAN into that network, but I can’t work out how to do this.

I’m late getting started on this configuration, due to a number of other projects, and running miles of cat5 is my backup, but a simple L2 bridge (without an internet connection) seems hard to put together.

Hi,

Are you looking for this kind of connection?

)))))))))))))))))))))) Max HD router1 ))))))))) Clients
Central AP ))))))))) Max HD router2 ))))))))) Clients
)))))))))))))))))))))) Max HD router3 ))))))))) Clients

Then you need to bridge between Wifi WAN and LAN for each HD router? Then all clients will in same broadcast domain (L2) without internet access? Do correct me if I am wrong.

If you can provide network diagram with explanation then will be great.

Thank you.
