I've been playing around with the idea of a "centralized AP" and wondering if that's even possible (given the hardware supports spawning enough Wi-Fi networks).
The idea is quite simple:
Use a router as "dump" AP, but for multiple SSIDs - Ok what do I mean with that?
I have two separate routers (which I can't replace for various reasons) and it would be neat to have only a single access point for Wi-Fi devices, which will route the traffic to the corresponding router, which will then take care of the proper routing further itself (be it outside (to the internet) or inside (to another subnet/VPN) or whatever).
2,4GHz + 5GHz SSID: Office -> Route traffic to office router
2,4GHz + 5GHz SSID: Home -> Route traffic to home router
I've a TP-Link Archer C7 v5 here and would like to realize it like that.
I would just go ahead and configure it as "dumb AP" and plug in LAN 1 the office router LAN and in LAN 2 the home router LAN.
Is this a possible scenario?
I'd appreciate any advice - thanks alot!
