    What's the range of those 420s?

    Sports are wanting a little wireless network and there are three adjoining classrooms that so it doesn't need to be a massive range. Plus the classrooms have like paperthin walls.

    Anyone ever had any problems with netgears?

    I use them at home and at work, I think they are wicked!

    Just ordered a Netgear Rangemax Next for a trial in the boarding houses.

    I'm not interested in security, it's going to be open access I'm more concerned with range, reliability and the need to handle perhaps 20 concurrent connections.

    I was going to go for the Procurve 10g but the suppliers wireless expert recommends the Netgear.

    The 10g's are going for two for the price of one at some vendors and I thought there might be a reason for that... i.e. they aren't very good.

    I've always recommended netgear, as they have always been effcient - then again I have never used any other brand, except some foreign wireless Router which talktalk are dishing out to customers at the moment, I configured it for my parents.

    We have Linksys WRT54GL APs with DD-WRT on. Works a treat and lets you monitor them with RFlow Collector (or presumably other packages that understand Cisco Netflow format). We haven't noticed any stability problems running at the factory transmit levels.

    Considering they are £90 each normally this has got to be a bargain, just had four delivered for my school.
