WiFi Access Point Connected Directly to PepLink or Behind Downstream Router?


#1

Hello,

Is there any efficiency and/or performance disadvantage with having a WiFi access point (Apple AirPort Extreme) connected to an unmanaged router DOWNSTREAM of a PepLink Balance 20? Is it better to have the access point connected directly to the PepLink unit?

I have experimented with both options and can’t find any immediate issues. Otherwise, it is cleaner in the overall design to keep it on my movable network rack.

There shouldn’t be any issue with either approach, whatever is easiest for you…
