I've been asked to set up a wireless network for a campground. The cables, power, and coax antennas for routers are in place. The consumer grade equipment finally died, so they need to replace it.



That's what I'm looking at. Bottom left is the office where Comcast lives and where I will need a gateway that I can easily add users to and give the weekend campers a username/password for X number of devices.

I'll get two antennas on the main office. One pointing north to the bathhouse and one to the pool house. The Pool house will have a second antenna going to the lower campground.

The red stars are where they want an access point, so I'd have an AP in the office, one by the Pool House worked into the wireless bridge that will be there (haven't done this before), and one in the Bath House and Lower Campground.

I've only used Ubiquiti hardware to set up a network like this. Ubiquiti antennas run on 2.4 and 5GHz.

Would I be better served with something like a Metrolinq running at 60GHz for the network?


And what kind of Guest Access would I be best served setting up? I don't even know if Ubiquiti has something where you can log into it and give someone access on a different subnet and have it expire automatically or remove them after 2 days or whatever. They have their Security Gateway which does firewall and everything all-in-one but I've never used that.

Ideas on hardware and setup thoughts?

Yeah, Ubiquiti is all I know for this stuff, so if no one thinks I should use higher powered antennas... Unifi it is.

I would use OpenMesh stuff, no question.

Post this on the Ubiquiti forums and you'll probably end up with a full list of product SKUs and how to configure it all. Not to say people here aren't knowledgable but the Ubiquiti community is pretty decent.
