    how many wireless clients are we wanting to connect to the wireless cell at any one time?

    that would be around 150 to 200 clients. max

    200 wireless clients would make most routers fall over, especially if there was limited bandwidth. you cannot just think about the size of the wireless cell.

    is this wireless setup for internet access or LAN acces only?

    if you were to go for a 54g router. this gives approximatey 22Mbps download on 1 wirless client. now divide this by 200 and you may as well give everyone a dialup modem. it would be faster!

    well that would be only for internet having a speed of 2 Mbps ...
    what about other routers expensive ones i was just looking at linksys web site... wht about this boingo thing ?

    In addition, while DHCP can dish out plenty IP addresses, each router and Access Point can handle about 30-32 wireless clients at any given time.

    2Mb internet access? the 200 users have to share 2Mbs? :eek: I wouldn't want to be one of thouse clients:)

    boingo? I know very little about it. though i bet they have a faster internet connection for thier users than a shared 2mb connection.

    2Mbps isn't as bad if it's a dedicated lease line

    better go with at least 5 routers - safety in numbers :biggrin:

    you cold do this. no the problem is,

    how are the 4 WAPs to be connected? Large lengths of Cable? the you come into the problem od distance with CAT5 cable. any more than 100m unbroken cable segments and you will need a switch to extend the distance.

    4 WAP54Gs could do it i suppose. though then you would need to locate them so that the wireless cells give maximum signal coverage.

    assign each WAP a different subnet perhaps? 192.168.x.0 or have a seperate DHCP server (PC based)
