We have a decent wireless setup at a school where 98% percent of the school has a signal. It is basically 9 Cisco Aironet LIghtwieghts with a Ciaco Controller.
Never really had any issues with it however a coworker attended a seminar and was given some info on wireless and to me it sounds like salesman trying to make a sale.
So I would like comments or suggestions and if possible a link showing it.
I am not a wireless expert. My job is network administrator/engineer meaning I just configure switches, router, firewalls, and servers.
What are the industry standards for wireless 802.11 a,b,g, and n in relation to workstation to access point ratio.
He was told for best connection and throughput the magic number is 20 laptops to an access point.
Also what are the recommended distances between APs.
