I have a fairly large house, with a main router (Asus) that handles the internet connection as well as DHCP, firewall, etc. This router is connected to an ethernet switch, which is connected to different areas in the house as a sort of "backbone". Multiple WiFi access points (different brands) are then connected to the ethernet network (about 4-5) and so I have full WiFi coverage around the house. All WiFi access points currently share the same SSID
Unfortunately, it's an insecure network. I now want to set some security, but that involves having to set each single access point one by one, and I would have to make sure that the settings all match. I could do it manually, but I'm wondering if there's a way to automate this. Can one router manage the settings of the other routers in the house?
I'm pretty sure this is possible, because there are places like universities, office workplaces, etc. that all seem to have a unified WiFi configuration. Those must have tens to hundreds of access points managed by one IT team, so I'm pretty sure they are using some kind of system to set the settings on them all whenever they need to. Is this a standard and is it possible on your average home router?
