you ask about routers, plural. One LAN, one ISP, one router. So if the clubhouse and other areas are all on the same LAN, there would of course be just one actual router.

Unless you re-purpose a router as an access point (AP), no firmware change.

Changeable antennas: These were mostly 802.11g and early 11n. With MIMO forms of 11n, the multiple antennas are typically internal for both technical and cost reasons.

Well yes basically the additional routers are basically just used as a access point. Im still think to much about my old WRT54GS which, with additional functionality, had all these features.

Should i start a new Thread then about accesspoints for my specific purposes?

Ah thats annoying. We use one of these Routers with internal Antennas inside our building atm and it has serious problems reaching through walls. (2.4Ghz since nearly noone here has a 5ghz able device) (Its a Cisco/Linksys EA2700).

well, the adage - you can have speed or range - applies most assuredly to low power unlicensed wireless!

highly mobile devices tend to need lower speeds than immobile devices. Hence, less speed-aggressive wireless is best for them. And that leads to better range. ye ole 11g and 11b have better range as they strive for fewer bits/Hz/sec. And equipment supporting 11b/g can use directional antennas well. But the low power limits (FCC) of the unlicensed bands is there for good reason: spectrum sharing.
