One is pointing out the front window, the other is upstairs at the back; in theory this should flood a circle around our house with wifi, SSID “100 Prince Street” which you are welcome to borrow while you are in the neighbourhood.
The tiny Meraki access points are truly painless to install: I plugged one in to the cable modem, the other stands alone. They powered on, found the Internet (and each other) and I configured them through the web-based dashboard that Meraki offers.
The magic of the Meraki (over your run-of-the-mill wireless access point) is that they automatically work together, one getting Internet from the other. So, in other words, you can blanket a large area with wifi with only a single wired Internet connection at the very beginning of the chain.
If you want to outfit your neighbourhood, apartment building, campus, commune, etc. with wifi, this certainly seems a cheap and effective way to do so.
