Hi first poster here and just been reading about Mikrotik the last couple of days.
I'm running at home ac WiFi and gigabit ethernet Lan. I currently have all in one router / WiFi but not getting the WiFi coverage I need nor the security I want that I've go some lab servers running as I want to setup VPN. I was looking to run pfsense as my firewall router and DHCP but discovered Mikrotik the other day and fancy a change.
I'm proposing to run 2 cap ac access points and a RB3011 routerboard as my DHCP router / firewall. Internet WAN will come from my ADSL modem.
I would like to daisy chain the 2 CAP ac ap's using the POE out from the RB3011 and cap ac respectively to save on cable runs through the attic. Can the RB3011 output enough to run them both @13w each?
Can I run vlans on the RB3011 so I can keep lab servers , home production , guest on different ranges?
If everything is cabled direct into the RB3011 will I be able to map my home lab VM's using the dude?
