I am setting up WiFi in a new small business (all walls and ceilings open). The building is 70ft long by 25ft deep.
I will be using Time Warner cable as my internet provider.
I am planning on installing 2 or 3 wireless access points in the main hallway. I am running Cat6 cable in the ceiling to support PoE Access Points.
My question is.... what do I need to connect from the Time Warner cable modem to support the access points?
Do I need to have a standard WiFi router (ASUS, Linksys etc) between the Access Points and the cable modem? Or do I just install a switch such as TP-LINK TL-SF1008P ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CFATT2
)? Does a switch provide the DNS/IP information from Time Warner?
Is there a recommended brand of Access Point?
Cisco is about $228 ... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DDWT6NY
TP-Link makes one for $37 ... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002YETVXC
Do the square Cisco ones have to be mounted flush to the ceiling or can it be mounted on a wall?
Thanks in advance!
