i'm studying a possible solution to this scenario. I would like to setup an outdoor hotzone managed by coova. I'm currently selecting the equipment but i have some black hole due to my little experience in the field. What I would like to do is to deploy a 802.11N network composed by a certain number of repeater. As many vendors (and the protocol 802.11N) are not supported by openwrt the intended solution would be to configure a pc to act as central router running coovachilli, and use a set of AP which will refer to the main wired router for all the routing related tasks. What I still do not understand if it's a possible scenario, or if i'm wasting time. I skecth the diagram as I intend it right now, every suggestion or insult are welcome
pc running coova ------ switch------AP1------------repeater
In the sketch the formatting is lost, by the way AP1 and AP2 are wired connected to the switch, while all the repeaters are extending the signal of one of them. All of the AP/repeaters should simply relay on the main pc for assigning IP address to the clients.
