    We have 4 holiday cottages all in a row joined together with a phone line for Broadband coming in to one end

    Am thinking about having an ADSL wireless router at one end, and having 2 cables coming out of the ethernet ports to travel down the length of the long building - one to a wireless access point half way down, and the other cable to a wireless access point at the far end to deal with the cottage on the end

    Has anyone got any advice on the best type of router (and access points) to use to prevent IP address conflicts etc, considering there may be 10-15 different people each week connected at the same time

    And type of cable to use to future proof and advances in speed there may be

    I don't think a powerhub connector through the electricity would be ideal as they are on different ring mains

    Thanks

    Addendum

    I am from the UK

    I swapped the heavy usage broadband (which estimated at 40Gb+ per month download) to another BT line which was coming to the property anyway, and connected the wireless extenders to that

    No more IP address conflicts :D

    Originally we had a BT Home hub 3 on the line that kept getting IP address conflicts

    Now we have a BT Business Hub

    What is the difference ??

    What makes this router cope (although I have had a few dropouts since then) ??

    Is there a router that is made for multiple users ..... ????? :confused:
