I've been tasked with setting up network connectivity for a new office in our building. We have a wireless AP (Cisco 1200 Series Wireless) in the vicinity of the new office. i've tested the signal in the office and it's a very strong signal. Does the speed wireless come close to Ethernet?

nope. at the moment you max out at 54Mbps if you are lucky...chances are you wont ever get that quick.....Standard ethernet pumps out a 100Mbps connection....twice as fast at a minimum usually, Unles sof course you are talking about the new -n Standard which supposedly gives 100Mb+ on wireless, which at this stage is not approved and being rolled out so stick with cabling where you can
