✔ Best Answer
They would have ip address in the routers/lan subnet you have existing. No problem adding AP's as long as you understand this results in more internet usage which may slow everyone's internet access down.

Yeah. It is possible to add more then an AP on a wireless network. The system of adding more than an AP on a wireless network is know as Extended Service Set (ESS).

The configurations goes as explain below.
MATERIALS: 3 Routers or more, Ethernet Cable, Trunking pipe, Cable ties and your deployment know-how

STEP 1. Put internet cable at the rear of Router 1 and configure WAN as supplied by ISP and configure LAN as desire.

SPEP 2. place routers at strategic points in your network environment and link all routers involve through LAN ports and configure LAN of other routers decides Router 1 with same IP convention with Router 1 and SSID and enable wireless broadcast for clients to connect.

CAUTION: Make sure your passphrase is strong enough and your security type should be WPA2 and AES (If possible shut down network when idle).


Good luck

Sorry but that's not quite right.

"place routers at strategic points in your network environment and link all routers involve through LAN ports "

You missed the step of disabling these routers dhcp servers and setting each with a ip address in the lan subnet but not in the main routers dhcp scope for management access.

"same IP convention with Router 1 and SSID"

Unless the hardware supports WDS [google it] you would need a DIFFERENT SSID per AP.

ESS is usually used in manufacturing environment with a very big land scale and interference. In addition to the statement " placing routers in strategic places", security of these places should be considered.

In case of more clarification, please Pm me.
