I need to cover my all floors. Instead of running multiple APs on the same SSID, which causes session disconnection when roaming to a new IP, I'd like to setup a "mesh"-type system(I know this isn't really the right term) in order to provide the clients with the ability to hand-off connections seamlessly when roaming to the next AP and not interrupt existing TCP sessions/etc.
I've been looking at the best way to do this over time, and it seems like with Microtik it's possible to use WDS for this, but in my particular case, I have access to wired-backhaul, so a wireless mesh seems silly.
Based my research so far/Amazon browsing, my intention is to buy a Mikrotik hEX RB750Gr3 and 2x MikroTik cAP ac to get started; with the possibility of swapping the RB750Gr3 for an hAP ac² later on.
Intended network topography:
Netgear unmanaged 16 port switch
Wired devices & 2x cAP ac
I hope someone is able to give me a bit of reassurance that this setup will actually work as I'm intending or if this is more trouble than it's worth & I should forget this plan and look more into a Ubituiqi-based solution.
