Separate Network
« on: November 08, 2016, 07:31:50 PM »
I've heard and read that having a separate network for the show is recommended so that it isn't taking up bandwidth on the regular network for the house.  I am not all that familiar with networking, so not sure how to set that up.

I have 5 FPPs (3 Pi and 2 BBB).  If I connect the master wirelessly to my home network, can I then connect that wired to a network switch to connect to the others?  If I wanted to connect the others wirelessly to the switch, can I plug a Ubiquity type device to that?
