Dearest Cisco Support Community
I would like your feedback on what product to invest in.
I am currently managing the network infrastructure for a retreat-center. In the Guesthouse the amount of people accessing the Internet during retreats is between 5-70 active users, at peak times maybe as far as 120 users, probably more like maximum 70 users.
These users are using the wireless, since it would be to must cost to have 120 wired connections.
So my plan is to have a good stable Cisco Router at the base, and the 3-4 APs, to get the wireless to cover the whole building. I am looking into having these of different brands since I was told that different computer have an easier time to relate to different brands.
The retreat cente is out in the countryside so protecting the connection is not needed, the Guesthouse net will be without password.
I have been looking at the 1801W, but it only recommends 50 users. Do you think it would manage having 50-60 usally, but up to 120 at peak times (say one hour)?
What kind of Router do you suggest?
Lots of gratitude for having this support forum!
