The Chalange

  • The homeowner experienced significant WiFi issues, including dead zones and unreliable connections, especially while walking through the house during calls.

  • Reliable access was required for Local IoT devices, including a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) system for data storage.

  • High-Performance Equipment:

    • Recommended and installed high-performance network equipment, including a powerful router, PoE switch, and strategically placed access points (APs) to eliminate dead zones.

  • Enhanced Security:

    • Created multiple VLANs for each WiFi SSID and Ethernet access: main WiFi, guest WiFi, and IoT WiFi, each set to a specific VLAN to ensure security and integrity.

    • Configured WiFi security with WPA2.0 encryption.

    • Added a MAC address whitelist option for additional security.

    • Implemented advanced security measures to protect the homeowner’s data and ensure secure connections on both WiFi and wired networks.
