    Hello all,

    I have been asked to setup a wireless network for a friend who currently has
    a partially wired house (over 12KSQF on 4 floors). In his office he as the
    cable modem connected to a router/switch. From there he has one cable
    running down 2 flights of stairs and over to the next wing. The wired
    network works perfectly but he would like to add wireless access for two
    laptops to be used in both areas. I know one access point will not supply
    complete coverage and there is no drop in between. I figured I would simply
    added two access points; one on the switch and the other on the drop in the
    other wing. I find the wireless/router/switch combos are much cheaper so I
    figured I could replace his current wired router/switch with the
    wireless/router/switch then connect yet another wireless/router/switch to
    the drop in the other wing. Does anyone see a problem with this?

    Hey, I just found on the last page of the web interface where I can have the
    wireless router act as an AP only. What luck...
