HT is thinking about fitting an ICT suite out with 30 laptops . Just to get an idea of costs Iím assuming that 2 APs would be needed to split the load and Iím I right in thinking that said APís would need to be quality types so load splitting could be accomplished?
Any recommendations on the models needed?

Something that supports RADIUS and POE. Tho POE isn't all that important.
Pretty easy to do. I would still cable it tho. Unless they want it wireless. In which case I hope your network infrastruture will cope (no large remoting profiles \ login scripts etc)

@jobos - I definetly reccomend the Netgear WPN802 RangeMax, it has radius, and has such a far range its unbelivable, all of our AP's (the small few we have) are these.

@richardharris: thanks for the recommendation but looking at the specs on Miscos website I can’t see anything about load balancing. Are you sure it can do that?

Depending on what your wanting to do on the laptops, you may need more than 2 AP's especially if they are all going to be logging onto the network etc at the same time.
