I need to push a good wireless signal around my building on both floors.
The idea is for me to the first access point acting as the main access point which is plugged into the LAN via Ethernet cable & the other 2 as repeaters.
I have x3 Cisco WAP4410N-G5 Wireless Access Points.
I have configured the main access point (AP01) & this is working fine,
I then configured the second access point (AP02) with the same SSID & PW but on a different wireless channel. I managed to get this connected & talking to AP01
My questions are this:
01. Do I configure both Access points to connect to AP01
Do I daisy chain them together so AP03 connects to AP02 & AP02 connects to AP01?
02. Should I have each Access point on a different wireless channel / frequency, I read somewhere is stops the signal clashing.
03. Is there a better way of doing this and not using the repeater function, I also have the following modes available on the access points:
Wireless WDS Repeater
Wireless WDS Bridge

Is this possible with the access points I have? I have x3 one is configured as the Access point with the other 2 configured as repeaters. When I had AP02 & AP03 (repeaters) plugged in via Ethernet cable it screwed all the network up. Do you know what mode I'd need to have them in?
