Home network w/Wired Access Points?
Hi! This is my first post after searching through the forum for some answers. A bit of background about me: I have little to no network experience. I’m somewhat technically savvy (front end developer, and I’ve worked from home going on 13 years now), but definitely not so much with networking/hardware. So the questions I’m about to ask might seem blindingly obvious, but I wasn’t sure where else to start.
I have a very old, very solid and dense, 4-floor house that I was able to have wired with cat-6. All the cat-6 to each of the floors comes together in my first floor office. Two main goals: create a single house-wide WiFi 6 network that won’t cause a disconnect when moving around the house with a mobile device, and being able to hard-wire in some desktops and TVs to the network. I have a CentryLink 1 gig fiber connection to the house.
Outside of creating a mesh network with Eeros or similar – of which I’m familiar with, but have some reliability issues with, what other options are there for something that should probably be dead simple? I don’t think I really need the “mesh” part since I can connect everything back to my router. Should I be looking at “Wired Access Points” or something else? I know I’ll need a switch or router for all the ethernet cables to join together in my office, but what goes on the other end?
