What is cheapest way to set up wifi for motel?
Posted on 2007-03-28
Motel is set up in an "U" shape. There are 20 rooms all together. The main office is on the tip of one of the legs. There is an 2nd floor with an balcony over the main office. There are no 2nd lvl rooms. All are ground lvl.
We hare having high speed cable installed next week. I would like to use a normal Linksys or netgear router to give wifi to all the rooms. We have a budget issue. Is there an cheap out door omni directional antenna that I can get and mount out door corner of the roof of the motel to give wifi access to all the rooms? I would like to run a cable though the wall to where the modem/routter will be. Would one of these home devices be enough with that kind of antenna?
