Recommend a good wifi router for the web server on a local network to multiple clients?

Recommend a decent Wi-Fi router to:
  • Would work 10-15 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections with different devices: smartphones, laptops, tablets
  • Would be standard the ability to configure DHCP in part to tie to one specific MAC address a fixed ip address on the local network
  • To wifi network normally operate not only within the office but also within other on the same floor, remote not more than 50 meters from the router
  • It would be great to have the ability to setup DNS to tie your domain to a specific ip address

Solution
1)Ensure any inexpensive router.
2)Almost all of them have this feature.
3)This from the router is almost independent..
4)Almost all routers have.
"3)from router virtually independent.." - and so many different opinions on the forums, Yandex market and other. The people without exception and without exception wrong to link to different routers? Magic?

"4)Almost all routers have." - tested on 3 routers at hand - and haven't had one for such a function. - murray.Okune commented on July 8th 19 at 15:29
3)You made aptly - magic! To the word when a person is faced with something he cannot understand, he begins to think of different rituals, beliefs - that it is magic.
4)Maybe the weren't looking. Could you tell me the router model, I'll try to look where there in the admin these settings. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:32
About the connection of 50 meters
Wifi signal with a standard transmitter power rasprostranyaetsya over relatively long distances, so assuming a line of sight everything will work fine.

If there is a wall - they're jamming the signal, how much depends on the thickness, material and angle of trajectory.

The most important thing that is often overlooked - wifi two-way communication, the router transmits the information to the client, and the client router. If one of them is each other does not hear, there is no connection.
Any router powerful enough transmitter high standard and good antenna.
But clients can not boast - in laptops and smartphones to conserve power, the transmitter is less powerful antenna is small and in the housing.
In the end, what good is a good router? Customers will enjoy hearing any router.
But the router is banal will not hear the transmission of a weak client. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:35
10-15 does not provide "any router".
Any cheapest home after 3-4 connections no longer cope processorit of this device. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:38
: No magic there. There is physics. Faster processor, better or worse antenna, etc., etc - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:41
: CPU load depends on the pile of facts - the need to keep the tunnel to the service provider, encryption, routing, etc.
So the processor is bent from a heavy load.
And a heavy load to bent CPU can be run on a single connection, and maybe thirty connections and the load through the floor. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:44
: you justify writing that?
who cares what he uploaded there, except for developers of the router. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:47
: I'm just saying that when we know in advance that it is already about 10-15 devices, then your advice about "any router" is unacceptable. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:50
: Very reasonable.
If we talk about average load - 10-30клиентов well pull the cheapest d-link.
Corny problems in the air earlier start than the CPU will choke.

Ie load 100% the CPU of the router one or two customers is quite real.
But to do this with 10клиентов is already problematic.
The more customers, the less likelihood of overload of the processor. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:53
: Up to 30????????????????
Even there is nothing to condemn. Apparently you have no experience of the Wi-Fi connection for multiple devices. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:56
In fact of the matter is that there is.
Before the processing power was important, a lot of it that rested.
Now the processors have become much more efficient, but the air does not change.
30клиентов you simply arrange the mess in the air, it will be crowded, and the speed will be no.
The result - the CPU will stupidly stand. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:59
A. Well, that is about the different Wi-Fi channels you do not know. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 16:02
: Firstly we like talking about one access point - so where different channels?
Typical office access point will keep everyone on the same channel.
The second diversity channels is a good thing, but the problem is that the device is located even on non-overlapping channels still interfere with each other if the signal is strong enough.
Conflicts will still arise.
And that is that most of these non-overlapping channels not so much, General can not speak.

In General, the normal office access point of the budget would be completely normal to keep in open office 30-40клиентов, the speed will certainly not be so hot, but the CPU won't.
For no surfing pages is quite normal.

But if through the same point a single client to download a torrent with lots of peers, at high speed, and to VPN provider will keep it - then it is very likely that the processor of this point can not cope with the load. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 16:05

1,2,4 - any MikroTik
3 - depends on the quantity and quality of slabs. The bottleneck, more often, the transmitter power of the client device, not the transmitter power of the router.

Look at Mikrotik AC hAP lite
And the fact that it is without external antenni - it does not degrade the quality of distribution of its Wi-Fi signal?
There is much complicated setup? - do not get confused compared to regular routers? - murray.Okune commented on July 8th 19 at 15:31
1. Wi-Fi is not stable and depends strongly on environmental conditions - there is no absolute recipe, like, put the antenna in 2 times more and everything will be OK.

The transmitter power of the router even with a low gain internal antenna will likely be enough for your requirements. If there's a problem in the first place, try to find the least loaded frequency in 2.4 GHz with built-in analyzer.

In addition, it is 5GHz, which can work with 2.4 GHz.

2. Setup should not cause any problems. Mikrotik have excellent documentation and plenty of examples of settings in the network. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:34
Saw on Yandex.Market opinion on the topic: "Mikrotik hAP AC lite" doesn't work as signal repeater (WISP) - is it really so? Or illiterate people write? - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:37
Or am I confusing the repeater mode is called PTP Bridge ? - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:40
frankly, it as a repeater to configure it was not necessary, but WDS settings are and examples of how the Internet is.

I had recently to set up a WiFi network of 10+ access points, and on cheaper routers. I used the CAPsMAN functionality. Configurable with ease, managed the entire network from one router selected by the controller. Works seamless roaming. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:43
: Mikrotik can perfectly work as a repeater. Although it can be called anything you like. There's a confusion with the names.
But the repeater mode I would not advise to use it - more than twice the speed and ping in the channel, and so on a lot of problems.
That's quite the extreme case is when there are no other options, and speed is not important. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:46

permanent IP provides no router and the provider , about 50метров and a large number of connected devices it's access point ( the router with two antennae )
"permanent IP provides no router and the provider" - the provider? Where are you connecting to the Internet saw? We are talking about a local network and a reservation in the DHCP settings of a specific ip address for a specific machine by MAC address it. ) - murray.Okune commented on July 8th 19 at 15:33
by the way there are with 2-3-4 antenkami routers, the more antenac the better the quality, range or not? - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:36
: yeah , I missed this point , sorry . - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:39
Why provider? Static IP user is able to provide himself, you just have to register the settings connect the address, and it will not change.
In this case we are talking about the access point. Wi-Fi router is an access point with an integrated router.
And antennas can be any number. It is necessary for MIMO radar. - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:42
Ie the number of antennas do not need to chase? the quality and range of the signal, it does not increase? - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:45
: A few antennas need to work MIMO technology - it affects the speed of data transmission, but does not affect the range. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:48
: I have a router , and my smart catches the signal three houses from the source although another router with a single antenna does not give signal even to the first floor , that's the whole story - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:51
: what brand/model router do you have? - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 15:54
: What's that supposed to mean?
I have two of the cheapest routers D-Link Dir300 was doing bridge on kilometer with small.
And now, to consider it the best router? - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 15:57
: I'm not saying that he is the best , I just said that the difference in scatter signal probably depends on the number of antennas , it's just an opinion and I do not argue - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 16:00
The signal is distributed equally, it's the usual radio waves.
Many antennas need for simultaneous data transmission with spatial diversity.
It just increases the speed volume of data transmitted per unit time only.
How it works is not difficult to find, Google by the abbreviation MIMO. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 8th 19 at 16:03
: Thanks Artem ,I will read the info about this , - jailyn_Brekke71 commented on July 8th 19 at 16:06

Would work 10-15 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections with different devices: smartphones, laptops, tablets

If the traffic is not great - easily any mid-range camera. Say Mikrotik price categories: around $ 200 cope hurrah.

If the traffic is great - not right no device. Well this is physics: devices interfere with each other.

The correct version - if there is not enough speed to put on 2-3 different Wi-Fi channel with non-overlapping frequency.

To wifi network normally operate not only within the office but also within other on the same floor, remote not more than 50 meters from the router

This depends on the wall material and power antenna, etc. or At least there are repeaters Wi-Fi....
