Entire church wifi network

Our church does online streaming, and we need a wifi network for staff (locked down) and a guest network for members to use at the same time. Our church is made entirely of concrete. We will need multiple access points to reach the entire church.

In addition we have two internet connections. It has been asked for us to balance the traffic between the two connections if possible. The idea would be for redundancy if one connection drops.

Looking for suggestions on router, access points and configurations.

Thank you

What I can suggest is the EA4500 router. It's very good when it comes to speed and wireless signal ...




I believe that I can make it :smileyhappy:

How about access points, the church is about 9000 sq ft each of the two levels.

For access points you can use WAP610N. But I'd like to verify about the 2 internet connections you have.. Did you mean you have to ISPs?

Yes. Two desperate ISPs. One is 5m up and down and the other is slower, just not sure how slow right now.

Do you have 2 modems ? or just a patch from the wall ?

This could be the kind of set up that you may need ...

Re: Entire church wifi network

We are looking for new. Our current routers are old and speratic at best. I see the diagram and mostly yes. How can we load balance between two ISPs?

Re: Entire church wifi network

I see. Are you going to use your 2 internet connections or just one ?

Re: Entire church wifi network

Both. I may be using the wrong terminology. The two ISP would connect to a single router OR each to a router and they to a single switch that would control the traffic between the ISPs. This way if one ISP drops the other picks up with no disruption in service. Also giving the ability to give specific devices priority and then the guest network what ever is leftover so to speak.
