multiple access points vs stronger antenna

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Justin Michael, Jul 15, 2005.

  1. I am designing a wireless network for a site. IT has two floors and is
    in an L shape. The outside lines are 200 feet long. The inside lines
    are 100 feet long.

    I was intending on using antennas to increase my gain and reduce the
    number of access points I would have to deploy. However, one of my
    vendors suggested access points everywhere instead. In their design,
    they have access points every 20 feet or so. In my initial design, I
    have WAPs every 80 feet or so.

    The wireless network will not carry a lot of traffic, but should be
    available in most places for good network connectivity.

    I was leaning toward the lightweight access points (ala airespace) but
    I wasn't sure if there was another vendor who might also have a good
    product with central configuration.
