I've got my first Ruckus setup :-)
Its a doddle to setup - just assign the controller an IP, tell it an SSID and passkey and its off - the APs just find the controller by themselves :-)
I arrived here at 12 (now 14:17) and got 2 AP's intalled (and I've had lunch as well!) - it nearly takes longer to get them out of the box than installing them :-)
PS Thanks to Aggy at net-ctrl
Love that kit - if times weren't so bad at the mo I'd be fighting harder for it here...
@Si: Dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century! Whatever next... me on Facebook? (oh yeah, that happened last week!)
good to see you have joined the Ruckus Revolution Fella lol
ruckus is the bomb. we have around 98% coverage here (the 2% without coverage is the dining hall and the school gym). The lowest any member of staff has gotten was a 40% signal, and that was because she was on the field at the time!

Approx costs are around £750 for the central controller (that's to control up to 6 APs) - each AP costs around £250.
I also purchased a years support for a few hundred as well but that's optional.

PS but at the same time - I've just ordered 4x£40 Buffalo APs for another school as you can't beat them for value for money to drive 15 laptops at a time
However, my Ruckus school plans on having 30-40 machines running at once!
