Small business solution for wifi

Hi, have a sonicwall tz215  with wireless enabled but space requires additional access points.  Possibly 3 additional.   Don't want to use sonic points as they're too expensive and not as reliable.   Anyone have a good but less expensive option to build on the sonicwall wifi.. I'll need dual band capabilities with at least 2ssids (work and guest) for approximately 25 users.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should be able to use pretty much any AP's such as Netgear or cisco.

If you do use Sonicwall AP's then you get the advantage of management across all devices though.

D-Link are pretty good though. Maybe something like D-Link Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point
Take a look at Meraki (, which are cloud managed, and come with an easy setup and monitoring.

Meraki are good - they are basically a cisco product.

But think probably on the expensive side for what i am gathering.

But yes good solution if you want something solid. The downside is you have to pay support annually in order to maintain connection to be able to manage the devices so be aware of that.
