I have a bit of a tricky one,,,
I have 2 AP340,s in access point mode linked to 2 AP340,s in repeater mode, as a cheap alternative to a full bridge...
They are working fine so far, and I am running fine on one link, with the other just lying idle ,(unplugged from network at this end)
but linked by RF link as an emergency link to plug in if the first link dies...
However this means a manual unplug of one, and manual replug of the other,,, not good at 4 am...or if I am away!
what I wish to do, ideally , is have them actually running as a dual feed setup, load balancing so to speak,
so as if one drops out, the other takes on rest of the the load so as to give no break in connectivity,
or 2nd choice, have one link come online automatically as soon as the other link drops , to at least make it a backup system,
What solution would be an affordeable way to do this without collision problems etc ...?
All I have been able to find that does this easily so far is hardware boxes that are way out of the budget....
Any network McGyvers out there?
I can usually tinker around with things, just need a few good pointers ,...
