    It may be not what you are looking for but we have just finished out school wireless cloud. Originally we had a hand full of the D-Links AP, and now we have 14 Airport Extreme AP. We manage them on our iMacs using airport utility (Windows version available).

    We're looking into getting an Arruba system from Converge Networks.

    I'll vouch for the ruckus gear - amazing stuff.

    worth speaking to mark power at net-ctrl and getting some test kit, to see how good this stuff is

    We have just started to plan our new WiFi network. We are currently using a home-brew setup that is basically a VLAN with about 18 Linksys WAP4400N access points hooked up to a ZeroShell Linux box that acts as a Captive Portal with Kerberos authentication.

    Just purchased a 3Com managed WiFi solution, looks very nice out of the box, 1U management switch and some rather funky looking access points. I'm looking forward to having a proper play as soon as I get the time!

    Anyone else using 3Com managed WiFi kit here?

    We have an extricom solution which offers the blanket technology. As we have 2 managed switches with the 2 radio AP's option. Can we set the same channel number on both Switches for say Radio 1 or do they have to be on different channels on different managed switches. We have 2 SSID's setup a school one and a visitor one. I want to set the school wireless option on both switch to Channel 6 on switch 1 but not sure if i set channel 6 on switch 2 if they will interfere. If anyone else has this solution, I'd be interested in the best way to set it up.

    Thanks

    You'll be fine with the same on both as the managed switches will communicate this too each other this is how it's intended to work.
