Extending wireless network with 3com Access Points
At present we have 2 x 3com access points (3CRWE875075). We would like to extend the network to add perhaps 4/5 additional APs. The ones we have are now discontinued and replaced by 3CRWE876075.
I tried speaking to 3com technical (which consists of a message taker who is not technical). The response back was I needed to buy a wireless switch as well which would cost approx £1500:mad:. I am sure this is good but I don'r have any spare cash in the budget. I have allocated £180 each for 5 extra access points.
Question is can I setup a single wireless network with the above mentioned APs without having to buy an expensive switch?
I require a single SSID with basic security so classes can use laptops in different areas without having to mess with wireless settings. I have not seen the software that comes with the new AP so i a bit lost how to proceed.
Anyone used these 3Com AP's? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
