    I would hope any supplier/installer would do free survey/quote.

    Got 3 sets of people who are doing a free survey. Some did want to charge to be fair.

    Speak to CSE (CSE - ICT for schools).

    They do all our cabling, and they're always very well priced and do a good job. They don't charge for doing a quote either! (That's insane!)

    On the Ruckus side - how many AP's do you have that lot connecting through? Also, are they using 802.11n?

    Currently over 190 devices all told through wireless. If our suite gets wired it frees up lots of bandwidth for the wireless

    How many AP's though? And are they 802.11n or a/b/g? And are they plugged into gigabit switches?

    10 APs darted around the site, we get complete coverage with the APs with a few overlaps so some go to 1 AP, some go to another. 802.11G APs (2932 I believe the model is). And they are all plugged into gigabit switches yes. However with old Cat5e cabling serving as the infrastructure in this place, its sketchy at best as to the speed they APs get.

    I'd say you don't have enough AP's in place for that volume of wireless clients - especially as the 2942 (only one I can find on their site) would provide about 20Mbps maximum to clients. Also, they only connect to the network via 100Mbps (they don't have gigabit ports themselves). And they're single radio, which has its own knock on effects.

    I'd say a good option would be to look at replacing or augmenting your wireless with new 7363 APs. They're dual band, 1Gbps network connected, capable of a/b/g/n (so you'd ideally want to put some computers on n, some on a and some on g for best performance really).
