Good morning everyone,
I'm looking at getting some help in the design and setup of extending my home network to my cottage so that I have access to all my services from both locations. I will post my current setup when I get back home but I wanted to first know what device I should get for the cottage location.
I currently have a RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN with wifi (my kids call it the little alien). I also have a Cap AC (2.4&5GHz) to extend my WiFi around the house. I will probably need some Cap AC for the cottage as well, but that can be done once I have the initial connection.
At the cottage, I have had my Starlink working flawlessly and using only that. But now I would like to be able to start working from the cottage, have access to my home network (NAS, home server, Plex server, home automation server extension) to make it feel like I'm still at home. I continue to want WiFi in the cottage, be able to use my streaming services, add the cottage printer to the network.
So my first question is: What would be the recommended device to enable this connectivity? Should I just buy another 4011? Or is there something else that would work better?
Once I know the device, I'm hoping that is half the battle. My home network has a couple vlans, for the home automation stuff, the server stuff, and an admin one.
Thank you in advance for all the help. I'll post my config either later today or tonight.
