Hello, need some advice on setting up Wireless for around 20 Laptops in my office.
My office consists of 3 Floors. Our requirement is for a user to be able to browse the web on any floor without loosing an internet connection anyhwere.
Our entire offie including stairways have netwrok ports, so all our our Access Points will be physically plugged into the network, no repeaters will be needed.
We already have the backend ready to go, Internet Line, Sonicwall Firewall with dhcp etc etc.
We have purchased around 12 Linksys WAP 4410n Access Points, its a major over kill for our office but we will also be using the remaining ones at other offices so its not a problem if there are any spare.
So, to start off each unit will be setup with a IP address like 192.168.10.10 / 11 /12 and so.
Then I am to setup the SSID, lets say we call it WIFI, i setup the SSID exactly the same on every unit, then patch the units into the network switch.
Is the above correct ?
Does each unit need to have the same channel set or different channel.
The systems support something call WDS, but i have not idea if i should use this or not :
here is a quick link on the WDS
Is there a limitation to how many Access Points i can connect to each other for roaming latops.
Its my first every large wireless setup so any advice would help, i maybe doing it tottally wrong ????
