Guys, i need your collective brains....
Ok, had fire blah blah..majority of the school is now housed in an old convent down the road which was being used as conference and hotel facilities. When i say old, i mean old...a handful of single sockets here and there.
My problem: They are going to be there at least 12 months. I need them to have some sort of network down there. What i buy i want to be able to bring back to the school and use here, nothing is permanent. It cant cost the earth (but i also realise its not going to be free). There are 360 kids, 12+ staff. I have zero experience of anything like this.
1) We have a p2p connection from one building to another. There is no clear line of sight so if this is the way we go it means bouncing the signal off another building and then to "hogwarts" as its known.
2)Clone our network, have a wireless system put in, use mobile devices such a netbooks...but what happens after 12 months? My plan was that the DC at hogwarts would come back and be used as a member server on my "real" network. Wireless replaces what we currently have left over from the fire (we had managed HP, might be a good excuse to get Ruckus).
What would you do in my situation? Anything i haven't thought of? :confused:
