Recommended Wireless Setup Primary School
Posted on 2008-11-11
We have been appraoched to configure a wireless setup for a Primary School with 15-45 users using the Wireless at one time. Here is how they will be using it.
15-20 Users in each class room.
Class Room A = 15-20 Users
Class Room B = 15-20 Users
Class Room C = 15-20 Users
They would like the ability to be able to give all the people in each class room Wireless Access to the school network for things such as file sharing, printing, and internet. They also sometimes create movie files and share them on the network.
In the past we have used devices such as the wonderful D-Link DWL-3200AP which is a very robust Access Point and where looking at putting one of these in each classroom. We have never used them in an envrironment such as this and can see a problem with 15-20 Users accessing the same access point.
Has anyone in the past worked with school wireless networks and come across any real heavy bandwidth problems with Wireless.
The laptops will hopefully have a minimum 54MB connection into the network but as there 15-20 Users in the one room it would not be sufficient to have them all using the same access point as the speed when opening files and printing over the network will be incredibly slow.
Looking forward to hearing your 'Expert' thoughts on the subject.
