    I'm a big fan of Netgear kit, and now nearly always use their wired kit. I have also deployed 2 different managed wireless netgear systems, one 11g and one N. I have also depoloyed ruckus to 2 different schools. My advice is find the 3000 from somewhere!

    Netgear wireless is great in a fairly small, and unmanaged enviroment. As soon as you move to their managed kit ruckus is in a different league. In my 2 ruckus schools I havent touched the kit in over a year, and havent had a single issue caused by the wireless - with over 120 wireless clients in one of the schools.

    I would get a Cisco or Meru quote as well as that will give a better price picture of enterprise cost to the management. I have work with a poorly performing wireless and it is hell, HP system instead of Ruckus. I would say that that 3000 is money well spent. My view is that Ruckus have taken a very elegant way of solving the wifi performance issues.

    Good choice - the latest directors are a piece of p**s to set up too - just connect and run through the wizard!

    I wouldn't deploy a netgear anything into a professional environment, personally.

    As for what we do use for wireless, we've deployed trapeze in the past and aruba currently and we're extremely happy with the aruba solution.
