I'm with wanderer on this, you need to provide more detail.

If you're planning on feeding 3 separate buildings it's important to know how far apart the buildings are, how you plan on interconnecting them. Ideally, if you had internet at all 3 locations you would use a VPN.

But since you want to run all 3 throug one internet connection then your options change. You could use wireless point-to-point shots between buildings or you could use dedicated fiber optic lines between buildings. I can't think of any other viable options for interconnecting the 3 locations.

Considering you have limited money I would suggest you seriously look at putting separate internet connections in each location. Then buy SOHO router's that are capable of being VPN endpoints and setup a VPN between the 3 sites. That's probably a lot cheaper than buying the necessary wireless p-t-p hardware and is definitely cheaper than leasing 2 dedicated fiber optic lines.

You understand that all the "networks" are sharing the same internet connection? Access will become slower not faster.

Two ways to accomplish this:

1. get 3 public ips from the isp. Put a 5 port switch between the modem and the routers wan interfaces. Assign the 3 ips to each routers wan interface.
2. get only one ip from the isp. Place one router off the modem with the isp ip and then link the other two routers to the first.


Might want to say why you want 3 networks since there maybe other ways of accomplishing this without more routers.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Thanks for the assistance, the reason for the 3 routers is because we are feeding 3 separate buildings with the wifi and funds and materials are limited with this charity organization

You might want to provide a bit more detail. It does not appear this project has been well thought out if you think a router per building with one internet connection is going to work.
