Now what I would like to do is Install DD-WRT on the E4200 ( I realize I need to flash the router ) to support a VPN service. Then run cat 6 from the E4200 to a E3000 in a far bedroom to supply a Roku and TV and supply wireless signal to that bedroom.. Then from the Bedroom run cat 6 from the E3000 switch to The 2nd E3000 to also supply wireless and the switch in the 2nd bedroom.
1. I assume the the two E3000 routers would need DCHP turned off and eash be assigned a seperate IP address. correct ?
2. Can the same SSID be assigned to all three routers ?
3, The Cat 6 would run from the the E4200 switch to a Lan Port of the secondary E3000 ? Or would it connect to the Wlan port ?
4. And from the Lan switch port of the E3000 to a Lan (or Wlan ?) port of the 2nd E3000 ?
Would this setup allow the switchs on all three routers to work as well as give me a wi-fi signal at each location ?.
The reason for this this setup in wireless signal cannot pentrate the walls of the house due to being 18" on concrete. I have had to conduit ran to supply Cat 6 to the rooms. But would still like to have a wireless signal. If anyone has another suggestion or this simply won't work please feel free to post. The home is 3000 miles away and I'm tryin to at least get a good idea before I show up with the parts.
