Ok here's what I want to do. Have a shop with holiday flat above to which I want to provide guest wireless access. Currently have ISP supplied ADSL2 router which does not have guest network access facilities.
Yes I could replace the ISPís router. But not actual sure I want to at this stage. In somewhat of a negotiation with them!
I google'd for suitable replacement and was attracted to the Linksys E series routers which have very nice Guest network facilities. (Nice simple hotel style guest landing page and password), Plus (being Cisco) very configurable. But I think the are cable broadband only!
So my question is, could I connect one of these types of routers to a LAN port on the ISPís router and effectively use it as an Access point? I'd probably disable the wireless and DHCP in the ISPís router and let the Linksys do all of that. Creating a faster Secure Wired/Wireless LAN for the shop and an open guest wireless LAN for the flat. If so do I use the WAN port on the Linksys or one of the LAN ports?
Or is there a BT ADSL2 version of the Linksys Iím missing
Or an AP that anyone could recommend to do the same thing.
There is the possibility due to the property construction and layout, that whatever I use to provide the Guest access in the flat may have to be relocated to somewhere in said flat to provide adequate coverage. (Though I do see some Down sides, will discuss later)
