What the best soluton to expand my TZ215 Sonic Wall to Wireless that would provide wifi connection to 3 floors.

we currently have a  TZ215 sonic wall that services our LAN. I would like to expand this with 3 APs, one on each floor. I was looking at the Sonic Point N2 but wasn't sure if this is the best choice or how to configure 3 of them to work with the TZ215. First is this possible and second if so how do I configure it. Thanks in advance.

You can connect up to 16 sonicpoints to a tz215

As for how to configure sonicpoints, this has already been answered so ill just refer you to that:

If you go with sonicpoints, those are controlled by the sonicwall so you are already familier with the interface

Any 3rd party access point will easily put wireless clients on the wired lan without the sonicwall really caring. They plug into the lan anywhere, just make the ssid and security thr same and set auto channel selection.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I phrased the question incorrectly....
I'm aware that I can use and other access points or wireless routers ... I wanted to know if it is possible to use 3 sonic points , I know 1 can be used but wanted to verify that I can use 3. Also I would like to know how to configure the TZ215 to work and manage the APs.
