I'd also like to add that technical terms are not my strong suit. If ANYONE can talk to me like I'm a four year old, haha, that would be preferable. I know I haven't given a ton of information but I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to get me started and be able to maybe walk me through some of this once we get this stuff set up.
Again, this will be MUCH appreciated!
Okay, I do NOT know a lot about setting up wireless but do know the basics on how to log into a router, secure it, etc, so I'm hoping to get some much-needed help/advice here.
Basically, my boss owns an office park - about 13 acres all around. I am more of a web designer rather than a technical person, but he's saddled me with setting up wireless around his compound and then using it to run several wireless security cameras.
I could be wrong, but from what I've read, it seems I would need a single router that acts as the main router and then a few more as access points that would feed off the main router/each other and blanket the area. If this is correct (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong or offer better suggestions), how many would I need to cover a 13 acre business park?
I am basically winging it here and hoping to read up on how to set these cameras up. They will be here in just a few days and he wants me to find everything we'd need to cover his area so we can order it, so if you guys have any advice on what I would need/suggestions/prices/etc, it would be a GREAT help. Any help on setting the cameras up once I get them would be great help, too, as I may follow up with some help. I hate being saddled with this but it is what it is.
Thank you so much!
