Wirless OLD Hotel No Hallways
Posted on 2009-04-03
I am working on a wireless project for a hotel. No hallways and each room has it's own entrance. Think of something like a Red Roof Inn, but not Red Roof Inn. Single floor, two wings each wing his 450' or more in legnth. Every other room has a BRICK firewall that goes from floor to ceiling.
The cable provider will bring coax to each and ever room for internet access. This will be seperate from the regular cable that is already in the room.
What kind of broadband router has the capability of taking a coax (barrel twist) connector? As this point we will either have one AP / Router per room or one for every two rooms.
Eathernet is out of the question for many reasons. And since there are outlets in the room, putting a router in the room and plugging it in is no problem. Putting it all right where the TV and cable is will be the best, we think. Although we might mount the AP on the wall.
