It's been a while that i posted on here. I have a 2 friends who own hotels/motels. the Setups are a little different and I will try and explain what is going on with each and what I need for each!
One is a hotel - 5 floors and is a solid brick building. There used to be 1 internet line - serving the 5 floors.. but since speed was slow, there are 2 lines now. Both lines come in through the basement - and one goes up to the office on the first floor- and services floors #1 and #2 thru wireless routers and access points!
Now.. the floors 3,4,5 run on the other line - and the cable goes all the way from the basement to the 4th floor by a regular Ethernet cable and then to the Acess points on the same floor. There seems to be a problem all the time.. and most guests are experiencing slow connections. I was wondering what is the best way and cables to use to maximize the use of bandwidth here. it is a 6.0 mbps line and speeds are utterly rubbish at the router. I know there is a new thing - the routers that plugs into the electrical socket and in two different places and it transmits signals.. would that ve a good way to do this - given the distance between the basement and the 4th floor?
Now, the second one is a little more complicated. The second one is more like a motel - and the buildings are spread out. The main office is where the internet connection comes in and then the rooms are spread out into 2 buildings - one is right across form the office - maybe about 60-80 feet. and then then other one about 90-100 feet on the side. Both buildings are long - just like a regular motel. what would be the best way to go about setting up wireless internet here? I know they have antennas and all that. But i have no clue as to what to use
Hope that you guys can help me out with this..
