Suggestion (Hardware) for Office Network
There were times that people in the office were complaining about their internet speeds (only wireless ones) . I rarely experienced slow internet connections and suspect that this happens when people's cloud backups are running but not sure. Our speed is 5/50.
We will now (have to) change our network and will put modem into bridge mode and add a router after the modem and that router will be distributing everything.
There are about 15 people (only 5-6 wired) in the office and most people use wireless. After you add people's wireless devices, at a peak time 30 devices are connected to this network.
My questions are;
1 - Is it OK to use this D-link as a router after modem? Do I need a better router?
2 - If I use this D-link as a router right after the modem, I will need an access point for wireless connections. What would be the best device for that access point? That access point will have wired connection (or doesn't have to but we have a wired port available for the access point).
3 - If I cannot use this existing D-link as a router, can I still continue using this as a wireless access point or do I need a better access point?
