Need help with wifi network setup

    Hi guys,

    I want to give my tenants in a 3-story apartment building(10 rooms/floor w/ 5 rooms on each side facing each other) a free wifi connection for normal web surfing purpose. After some research, I came up with a plan to run a 6-12 mbps ADSL line to my office at one end of the building on the 2nd floor and connect to an all-in-one router with the following capabilities
    -Qos that let me prioritize bandwidth based on activities
    -URL and/or keywords filtering to block some website(s), just in case.
    -WPA or WPA2 and MAC filtering to protect intrusion from outside.
    -High transmission power so that I don't have to add any Access Point.
    BTW, the building dimension is 25x10x15 (length*width*height in meters). Will this plan work? If yes, can someone please recommend a box that meets all my requirements at a reasonable price. Will Linksys WAG120N do the tricks? I'm willing to add one AP on the 1st and 3rd floor, if necessary. :confused:
