Hey All, So Happy to be a part of this community.
I was wondering if there are any people who would be willing to lend some advice. Anyone is welcome to comment, But perhaps those who really understand Networking like a network engineer could be super helpful.
I have been doing tons and tons and tons of research on different Mesh Systems and AP points and Routers that can be expanded, but my real question is what are the big guys using ? The guys who really understand networking and security ? Like network Engineers, people who work for big tech etc etc ?
My goal is simple, I want a MESH system (Router in AP mode + Multiple Satellite Nodes) I want excellent coverage ( The satellites help with this part) But also Two features Im extremely interested in are Nat Loopback, AKA NAT Hairpinning, and also VLAN Support.
I have already come up with some of my own options, but Im unaware of speed, quality, security, reliability, etc. I have looked at the Orbi Pro Wi-Fi 6 which seems to get a lot of praise from most, but on the other hand, some others think it is too buggy ?
I need something consistent in reliability, performance, security.. preferably something somewhat compact, although this is really not an issue. Multiple VLAN support, such as on the Orbi Pro.
Please I am all ears, and my apologies for the long post. Im just very conflicted, and I will be stuck on this forever haha.
There are so many options out there, and Im just trying to see what works most efficient. VLAN Support and NAT Loopback are definite requirements, although if I had to sacrifice one over the other it would be the VLAN support to boot, and NAT Loopback as a requirement.
Thanks in advance !
