    Hello,
    I would like to build a guest internet in my house. In the cellar I have a zyxel g4100 hotspot router which makes me the DHCP.

    question:
    Is it possible to distribute 3 Xiaomi 3c routers in the house (see sketch) so that over the floors a wifi roaming with the same SSID is possible?

    The first router is connected with LAN cable to the zyxel router. The other two router would have to be connected via wifi.

    But all routers should also serve as Accesspoints for the clients?

    is that possible? Can someone tell me exactly how I must configure the xiaomi router?

    THX

    Hi Mike,

    The Xiaomi routers all have the capability to run in a AP mode 'Bridged' to your current SSID.

    So you could setup the Guest nodes on the 1st Xiaomi router than have the other 2 Xiaomi routers AP Mode to that 1st one and you can set up Guest WiFi to work as you need it while keeping the rest of your network away from guests, such as they would not perhaps have access to your main SSID but to a Guest one e.g. GuestXiaomiNode which can only connect to the Xiaomi gear.

    PS. Totally doable - the routers can support AP mode :)

    Hello thanks for the information!
    The problem will be that I can not use the guest mode because I need access to the original SSID. The zyxel router manages with printable coupons (username/password) the wifi accesses!
    If I understand correctly then is the guest mode a closed network?
    I think then the administration with the printable vouchers of the zyxel is no longer possible?!?

    is there a possibility with all AP stay in the same SSID ?

    Thanks
