Wireless in a multi-story building.
Posted on 2005-04-18
I'm left in charge of setting up a wireless network in our office. We've an open office environment with cubicles and some rooms on the corners and sides. The office consists of 4 floors. It looks like 2 access points on every floor would be enough to get everyone connected,, but the catch is that I want people to use the same AP name for any given AP on any given floor. I don't want people needing to select new APs as they are moving around with their laptops from floor to floor or room to room. Is there a solution that I can use which would work with a single AP name by combining the signals of all the APs in the network?
All users will be using the wireless network and we're planning to get rid of the ethernet cabling for good. There are about 200 users in total who will be connected to the network all the time. I'd also prefer a G network if possible.
I'll be waiting for your suggestions.
