best wireless access points.

Our office has 4 access points.  (Linksys).   I would like a professional opinion before we buy new access points.  Our office is approx.  7,000 Sq ft.  Some brick walls.  4 large open rooms separated by a hall with a conference room in the rear.

Thanks

There are lots of good ones. I like the Cisco RVxx series (RV180W, RV215W and RV220W). All, particularly the last one, have good range and solid performance. We use these at clients.

I have an RV220W in my home office behind an 8-Inch Iron beam and concrete wall in the basement and I get very good service 2 floors up on the other side of the house.

So something like that should work for you, and of course, there are other units.

 For WiFi I have the perfect solution.  It's a company called Ubiquiti and they make what they call their UniFi discs.  These discs look like flying saucers and come with a super easy to use and setup software.  You plug them in in your locations then go to a computer and install the software then it finds them and pulls them all in so you can make one giant network without having to set up multiple access points.  You can create a guest account in less than 10 seconds.  They are super affordable and run great.  I think they cost somewhere between $120-150 for a 3 pack.  Check them out here:  http://www.ubnt.com/unifi

 I also like the LinkSys router I mentioned in the thread but you may have too many users for that one.
