Could you help me to know how many connections could the aironet 1260 or 3500 series support?
Cisco recommends no more than 25 clients successfully associated per access point, however, this doesn't stop anyone from going higher. I've seen someone with 35 clients to an AP and it works normally.
1. You mentioned 3500 and 1260. Be aware that both models do not (yet) support autonomous IOS so you'll need to consider WLC. IF you are, then a 2100 is not a good idea for an environment supporting 800 PCs. Think about the 4400 or the 5508. Frankly, I'd go for the 5508.
2. Before you embark down this road, make sure you get a comprehensive wireless site survey done. I can't stress the important of this activity as this can spell out how well is your signal going to propagate.

A. The AP has the physical capacity to handle 2048 MAC addresses, but, because the AP is a shared medium and acts as a wireless hub, the performance of each user decreases as the number of users increases on an individual AP. Ideally, not more than 24 clients can associate with the AP because the throughput of the AP is reduced with each client that associates to the AP.
Our wireless network is actually to test wireless devices connectivity, so the clients will be associate only for 5-10 minutes, the test is done in less than a minute and send around 500kb of data, the rest of the time the connection does not transmit anything, just is associate to the AP.
Our current max of clients on test phase is around 800 at the same time. Today we had a arrange of 4 AP small bussines and we want to move to a new enterprice AP. We thing on these AP 3500, 1260 and 1240AG.
I was looking for an AP standalone and act as DHCP to provide IP address.
Your statement of "Be aware that both models do not (yet) support autonomous IOS so you'll need to consider WLC" means tat this do not have that capability.
Maybe with this information you could have a better idea of our needs.

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
