Have to Setup Wireless Router for Small Company. (80 users). Also, will have to setup a wireless extender.

I have set this up at home.  But, not in a production environment.  Was wondering if anyone has any experience and provide feedback.  Thanks!

Dou you just need to add wifi to a network that already has a router? Look at Meraki for something easy to manage.

If you need a router, Meraki has those too but I prefer sonicwall for those. .

Hi, take a look at this URL of the previous member I helped here on experts-exchange.

If you do not already have a firewall consider PF sense as your firewall. As well to go along with PF sense firewall you can add ubiquity access points for control and access wirelessly.

This firewall will support guest access as well as corporate access via various SSIDs in conjunction with the ubiquity firewall.

setting up a wireless router is the same for home users as business ones. The difference is what settings you may prefer (mostly from a security perspective)

best to setup separate devices if possible.

A router/firewall (located near internet lines)
A wifi AP (which can be located for best signal)

if possible, avoid a wifi extender as it is very inefficient. if you can get a cable or wall socket elsewhere in the building, a separate wifi unit would be better.
