I'm not sure if our 3 routers, in our wifi network, should be on separate channels (so each can maximize the bandwidth per channel) ?
Our office is networked via WiFi. It is in the shape of a 'L' and is made up of 4 rooms. In 3 of these rooms are 3 routers.
A: Billion BiPAC 7404VNPX. Internet Gateway. VOIP Device. (Firmware: 6.03)
B: Asus RT-N12 (firmware: 1008) Repeater Mode
C: Asus RT-N12 (firmware: 1008) Repeater Mode
___ [ A ] [ ] ______ [ B ][ C] --- ------
The reason why the 'C' device is over on the far end of the room is because we have a few devices that connect via ethernet to the back of that device.
That is the reason why I have 3 routers >> to extend the wifi from device 'A' all the way around the corner to the devices, at location 'C'. Otherwise, anything in room 'C' cannot see the wifi (too much interference).
Anyways, here's a scan of the WiFi network using inSSIDER 2.0.
This screen shot was taken on my MacBook pro a foot or so away from router 'B'.
Now, should I be placing each router on it's own channel? with the end of the each router range touching the next one?
- Router A on channel 1.
- Router B on channel 9.
- Router C on channel 13.
