Gigabit access point
I have been tasked with creating a Y7 base, in which 1 of our single floor buildings will have a laptop trolley with 30 laptops. This building is not very big, is more or less square in shape and has 7 smallish classrooms. The building is connected via gigabit fibre to the server room on the same site.
Ideally I would like to get some support from a 3rd party, but as usuall this has to be achieved on the cheap and so im stuck with coming up with an in house solution.
I am thinking to add 3 or 4 gigabit access points to the building, since additional laptops might be acquired should it prove successful and I want it to be as painless as possible and donít want slow connectivity issues.
I have looked at the various access points and ask for advice from anyone who has setup access points with a gigabit interface.
I have been looking at the following, which are quite reasonably priced.

Yes another + for Ruckus! :)
Again speak to mark on the forums he will be able to help you.
3rd for Ruckus and Mark Power :)
It does rather depend of the amount of money he has to spend, Ruckus or managed wireless is probably the way to go though.
I do like the Netgear kit, but their N-standard ProSafe stuff doesn't really compare with the Ruckus. Netgear's B/G points (the WG102, WG302 etc.) can be made to work with their managed wireless system (the WFS709TP), but the N standard one can't. I did ask them when they'd be releasing an 'N' standard management system, but they've not announced any plans yet.
Really happy to talk to you about the use of Ruckus Wirless in this situation, just give me a call and I can go through this with you in more details based around your requirments.
