Have a client who has an office on a floor that is shared with other tenants.  Presently he has 4 or 5 people together in one part of the floor.  He is renting 2 more offices on the floor, the first office is approximately 40 to 50 feet away from the main switch/server (underneath a secretary's desk).  It is around a corner (L shaped 10 feet one part, the rest a corridor of about 40ft).  The second office is another 40 to 50 feet away (L shaped 40 feet straight, then corner then 10 feet).  We wanted to put a wireless access point where the server is mounted on the wall.  Another repeater at the first office that is going to be rented and then another one at the second office.  We cannot do any wiring on the floor, the building prefers we do it wirelessly, we have permission to install the units outside the office on the wall somewhere.  Any recommendations on the best way to do this and what are the best products to do this with.  (They are using Microsoft Server 2003 just for additional information)
