I need to implement a hotspot for my network (for both wired and Wi-Fi users) and I don't know what mikrotik hardware I have to buy.
We currently have 54 apartments, some with wired access and others with Wi-Fi, and the network is gigabit (cat 5e).
My idea is to place the mikrotik between the internet router (currently we have 600Mb/s symmetrical, although it may be increased to 1000Mb/s) and the switch that distributes to the different buildings where the 54 apartments are located, so that those who connect and login in the network can access the Internet (if they did not login in 2 minutes it would be good to disconnect them from the network for security reasons, but that I don't think influences the choice of hardware).
Note that not all the apartments connect to my network, since many have their own private internet connections, but I would like the hardware you recommend to be able to handle them all.
The other question is how many devices are connected for each apartment? I don't know, but I would calculate a maximum of 3 per apartment (162 devices).
I know my internet connection for 162 devices is very poor, but that can be upgraded adding 1 internet connection more and doing a load balance, so hardware may handle that.
WIFI has it's own security password that I change monthly.
I don't know if RB3011UiAS-RM or RB4011iGS+RM can handle that.
