    It's been a while since I last posted here, but I just saw this activity and couldn’t resist jumping back in. Here’s a look at my current network setup.

    My Current Setup:

    • Security Router: SCR50
    • Switch: GS1915-8EP
    • Access Points: NAP203 and NWA50AX

    I’ve got the NAP203 set up as my main access point (root AP), and the NWA50AX as a repeater in a smart mesh network. This setup gives me great Wi-Fi coverage throughout my house.

    I’m happy to be back and share my setup with everyone. Also get a new AP to replace my NAP203 lol. I’m looking forward to seeing other the amazing network setups out there!

    So from the beginning I didn't like wifi until I got a smart phone and before that I didn't even have a simple router because I didn't like NAT yup it was me my software firewall and for my home server Internet connection sharing in windows and then one day I started looking at ways I can have my one WAN IP on main PC and server plus HTPC and DNS server by the use of VLAN's then looked into USG bridge firewalls and then how to do NAT for wifi and WAN IP on device to which my network expanded over time along with needing a bigger cabinet.

    Real DMZ example (not yet working for H models)

    Not all my kit is Zyxel but most of it is.

    Access Points

    NWA1123-AC HD repeater by PoE

    WAX510D by PoE and managed by USG60W

    Security Routers

    USG40 Real DMZ with server

    USG60 for HTPC

    USG60W wifi

    Zywall 110 Real DMZ with main PC

    FLEX200 Real DMZ with DNS server bind

    FLEX200 H testing

    VPN300 main BWM

    I have two NWA50AX access points: one in my living room as the root AP, and the other in the bathroom as a repeater AP. I know it might sound odd to place an access point in the bathroom, but you’ll understand if you've ever been without WiFi while sitting on the toilet. 😅
