I need to put a few WIFI access points in a few rooms. One wifi router won’t do the trick - foil-backed insulation in the walls stops signals. If I built a network around EOMA68, is this a reasonable approach?
I imagine the simplest way to make one WIFI access point using an EOMA68-A20 card is to hook up a USB wifi adapter using a USB OTG cable. To make a network of these APs with a central management console means plugging in hardware like this. unmanaged switch | +— Internet | +— headless EOMA68 | +— WIFI AP (EOMA68 and wifi adapter) | +— WIFI AP | +— WIFI AP Then it’s all about mixing and matching software for the central console, access control, package updates and so on. Presumably the 'sellable product' approach is to build a housing that adds POE, MIMO antennas, and IEEE 802.11ac.
