  • hi ask lang po ng recommendations sa pag bili ng router.

    plan setup.

    modem-> router-> wireless movie stream.

    over kill po ba para sa 2 rooms ang asus rt-ac87u and mga mobile phones lang mga 4 mobile phones.

    baka may marecommend kayo na pwedeng mag stream ng movies sa external hdd na nakakabit sa router and same time may torrent and vpn setup.

    pahelp naman po thanks.

  • @ tongerks

    Never overkill ang router kung ang receiver mo ay supported ang 802.11ac standard.
  • Mga master, tanong ko lang.. Ano ba mas advisable for implementation? and why?

    1. DHCP ni PfSense
    2. DHCP ni Windows Server

    Thanks,
  • may maximum ba ang wifi repeater/ range extenders?
  • @wool

    wag mo isipin masyado yang range ng wifi repeater/extender. ang bottleneck jan mga wifi client devices.

    let's both agree na bumili ka nga ng cream of the crop best of the best na wifi repeater/extender which can broadcast up to 300 meters.

    yes your wifi client device will be able to scan the signal, makakapag transmit din kaya sila pabalik sa ganoong kalayo? without proper planning lalo lang nakasama:

    1. dahil hindi nga kaya, hindi mo rin na achieve ang goal to provide connectivity
    2. dahil hindi kaya mapipilitan ang client na nasa mababang throughput, manghihila yan ng rate ng wifi. imbes na sana sa disconnected na ang client pilit pa ring kumakapit at nag aadjust ang wifi repeater/extender sa kanya.

    Wifi repeater/extender kamo?
    pag nirepeat mo ang signal automatic ang rate divide by two na yan agad. so expect na pag dumami clients mo sa main at clients sa area na inixtend tatalon talon yan sa disconnection.

    **unless dual band ang wifi repeater/extender where in 5Ghz ang ginagamit pang extend ng wifi, problema sa 5Ghz mahina lang makapenetrate ng mga harang hindi tulad ng 2.4Ghz.

    so your best approach pa rin ay dapat WIRED Wireless Access Point.
  • @whoami01

    that really depends kung paano gusto mo setup. i have setup both.
    pero mas gusto ko ung dhcp sa windows server kase mas namamanage ko pa.
  • @sean_kero,

    thanks sa feedback sir, ginagamit ko ngayon DHCP ng server kasi may AD kami. At medyo naliliwanagan na din ako kung bakit mas recommended ng marami ang DHCP sa server kapag may AD. para all-in-one na.
  • dumb question:

    ano ang generic term for ubiquiti litebeam?
  • ^microwave.

    PTP or P2P or PTMP or P2MP Wireless Device.

  • Guys I need your help. Kakakabit lang kasi ng Globe fiber namin (Huawei modem router combo). May chance bang magamit ko as router yung mula kay PLDT (Prolink)? Ung sa PLDT kasi may QoS feature at para macontrol ko speed sa mga devices na kumokonekta?

    I tried disabling the DHCP nung Pldt then attaching it to my Main modem na Huawei, nagiging extender lang siya but I can't access ung settings ng PLDT Prolink router which is in 192.168.1.1 before so di ko rin macontrol yung bandwidth. By the way, I can access the 192.168.254.254 ng Huawei. Patulong naman guys, sayang naman if bibili pa ko bagong router. TIA.
  • @iamayugiohfan

    No. Since it's a prolink and from pldt then its either an adsl or vdsl modem.
    Routing mode will only work if you use the rj11 port.

    yep just buy a MikroTik router then follow my presentation at the MUM Saudi Arabia 2017. :)

    https://mum.mikrotik.com/presentations/SA17/presentation_4761_1508751501.pdf
    <click here for link>

    *just make sure to disable the Fasttrack rules.
    **tapos disable na rin the wifi of your huawei fiber modem para sa mikrotik sila mag connect at ma control ang bandwidth.
    ***mura lang yan hindi aabot ng P2,000++
    ****kaya nagiging mahal yung iba dahil naka packaged na ang configuration sa QoS.
