this is a continuance of this question:https://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Wireless/Q_28496104.html

Current setup is a Windows Server 2008 with DHCP role
Only one consumer quality Linksys wireless router

So I am to design and install a wireless network. Total devices on the network at any given time can be around 350-450 tablets, laptops, and smartphones.

How will I get IP addresses to all devices? Should I use the server DHCP with Access Points? Should I buy two business class routers each with a static ip handing out different ranges of addresses? I'm just not sure how to tackle the 254 ip address DHCP limit.
