Setting up new 3com Wireless Network in Large Corporate Bldg
Posted on 2004-11-02
More of a planning question here. I am in charge of setting up a multiple AP (we already have a few #com 8750 AP's) or Antenna alternative wireless network in a 500+ user environment. Essentially, I would like some advice on setting up the AP's, and\or Antenna's to have seemless roaming access to the same SSID's without having to change anything on the laptops. The bldg is narrow and straight with multiple walls and more than 5 AP\Antenna will have to be used. All machines are running winXP, some SP2, some SP1. So onto the question.
What is the best hardware to buy?
What Security should be set? (right now, we have Shared\WEP with MAC filtering)
If we use WEP with MAC filtering, I don't really want to add 200 users to each AP, is there another way?
