I have 4 D-Link DWL-3200AP Access Points deployed in a client and two of them have quit working after 2 years of use.  I am going to replace them with more of the same unless some of you have a better suggestion.  I have considered using Cisco Aironets, but the price is sort of out of budget range and I am not a certified Cisco tech.  I have all of the AP on the same SID and same channel to allow roaming between AP's.  The D-Link's are about $200 new, I think the Cisco devices are $350-400 new.  If you know of something else that works well in a commercial environment, let me know.  These AP regularly have 30 clients connecting to them.  I don't think that a consumer grade AP would be reliable.  Thanks for any input.

I have had good luck with Netgear ProSafe series products.   I have a few of their wireless AP in industrial installs and have worked for years without any trouble.    They fall somewhere between D-link and Cisco pricing.
