Good access point

Hello, I have a client who is located in an old school with cinder block walls.  They use 6 rooms which is about a 400ft x 400ft area.

Can anyone recommend a good business class access point?


Thanks

What I am not understanding is the range differences.  I am not sure why a home wifi router would get such better coverage.

Is there a measure to compare devices for coverage (e.g. db)?
Is there a measure to compare throughput?

You might be better off just getting a technical review from 3 major players like Cisco, Aruba, Ruckus as well seeing about getting a site survey.

I believe the access point is the right way to go but the client is not willing to puchase the access point that will best fit (and the quantity of access points).  I am going to end up using the router they have as an access point but put a new router in that is better suited for their needs.  If that does not work I will go back to what they have now.
