Does anyone have any suggestions for a good Wireless Access Point? We are moving offices, and the new office is supposed to be all wireless PC connections. Security and speed are my two highest ranking needs.

we have a couple of airport extreme base stations then they are quite good and powerful for up to 20-25 people.

Engenius EAP600 (Or if that's too expensive, it's older cousin EAP300 would suffice just as well).

I've used dozens of these at various client sites and have yet to hear a single complaint about connectivity/performance.

Nobody ever got fired for buying Cisco. Go to
http://tools.cisco.com/WWChannels/LOCATR/openBasicSearch.do
and find a local partner.

If you want to go cheaper, you could try
http://www.dlink.com/us/en/business-solutions/wireless
but their support is nowhere near that of Cisco's.

Is it only compatible with Apple products? or does it also support Windows?
