as many other users on this forum I'm trying to improve my home network.
My main gateway is a RPI4 running OpenWRT connected to a managed switch following this post
Unfortunately before meeting OpenWRT i purchased two Honor routers. Since they are very new and powerful I wouldn't buy others.
Both have ethernet wired connection.
My goals are:
- to have the same ssid(s) on the whole house
- to run both Honor routers as independent access point to avoid issues with repeating/meshing
- to run a guest network.
After a lot of attempts I'm still very puzzled.
If I link routers to the WAN port I get guest network, but I get also two more DHCP servers and I don't know how this affects devices moving between routers. Moreover i don't know how the traffic originated from access point will be managed by the RPI4.
If I link routers to LAN port I get guest network as well, but obviously the traffic originated from connected devices goes nowhere.
My scenario looks like this one with two NoTOpenWRT AP.
Is there any other approach that i didn't consider?
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions.
My kind regards
