    Wireless AP for trolley

    We've got good wireless coverage in many areas thanks to our Colubris/HP kit (controller plus APs).

    Some areas however have no coverage, and these areas are after laptops in banks of 16 which may be used in 4 or 5 classrooms.

    The layout of the rooms would mean that extending the coverage using more Colubris APs would cost almost 1500.

    I think a solution is to simply put an AP on the trolley, so the signal goes with the laptops. Can anyone recommend an AP that would be suitable for this, needs to support 16 connections, ideally with extra LAN ports so that I can plug the teacher PC into the back of it when in use so I don't have to put extra sockets in each room.

    Thanks

    Bufflao WHR-G54.... (Whatever model they are doing this week) Router/Bridge.

    Normally 50 - for 4 rooms - just buy 4 of them and be done with it

    Little switch on the bottom to convert between router/bridge

    handles 15 -20 laptops in a class fine - its what I use in all my primaries except for the one school that bought Ruckus

    regards
