Hello,

I'm looking for a good user friendly wifi setup (not cisco commands if possible) that will allow me to have multiple access points for a very large house.  I have some knowledge of networking but not CCNA level.  What hardware setup does anyone recommend for multiple access points that can all broadcast same SSID's, multiple SSID's (for guest wireless) & a GUI setup menu for ease.  POE will be used for the access points.  I can have up to 15 access points if that help any.

Simple, works a treat.  Comes in three packs for "about "  200 USD.

Is not a repeater.  requires each WAP to be wired to the switch/router.

I think what you are looking for is a roaming network setup.  Before you buy new equipment have a look at this article

I have had really good luck with those.  We cover some medical offices of 5K ft sq with just one of them.
