    Nearly 4k went on installing & configuring.

    The question im asking how easy would it be to configure it myself?

    Thanks

    p.s the qoute recommended that I have 20 ap's, does that sound right for a small primary school
    currently we got some cheapo dlinks (about 8) which cover most of the school
    You could install this yourself in minutes - it's that simple (honestly, we did it a couple of months ago, really easy)

    With regards to the number of access points, we are a secondary and we have 12 currently in use and that serves around 120 laptops, but could easily accommodate lots more.

    We purchased ours from CPLTD, no-one could touch them for price, Simon's a good guy which helps a great deal!

    If you would like any further info, please PM me.

    Thanks

    Cheers for the feedback guys n gals, Net-Ctrl are sending a demo unit so i can do a site survey myself and get an idea of how many i need. If all things go well I plan to roll out Ruckus to 5 other schools.

    As another Ruckus owner I can confirm how easy it is to put up yourself and setup. The guy at Net Ctrl were there when I had a blonde moment when VLAN testing it during my evaluation period and from talking to the school its in they are still over 2 years since purchase loving it
