Tested and reliable WiFi "mesh" for SMB

I'm looking for detailed information on how to set up a reliable "mesh" network of WiFi access points to allow users to roam freely around an office that is larger than a single wireless access point to serve. The concept is that users only need to authenticate once and will automatically pick up the strongest WiFi signal to seamlessly move around the office.

If possible, I'd like specific recommendations about hardware based upon actual experience.

We have a Cisco 4402 wireless access controller which will support up to 12 access points.  Have had it running for 3 years now with no problems.

Datasheets and literature here:-

My question lacked one important detail - I'm looking for a low cost solution based possibly based upon readily available consumer grade equipment.

I will resubmit my question with this proviso.
OK - post a link to the alternate question here and give an idea of budget you have in mind.
