Well this very much depends on what the building structure is.

You should consider a site survey for the wireless strength. Cisco partners / retailers could offer such services.

If you are looking for something simple, you can get a linksys n router which will do routing an ap. Not sure if the coverage will be that great. I use it to cover about 80m in buildings.

Firstly, until Cisco releases the autonomous IOS (aIOS) for the 1140, you can't use the 1140 unless you have a Wireless LAN Controller.

Next, how does the xDSL come in to your site? Cisco has a number of xDSL ISRs (850/870) integrated with a 4-port (non-PoE) switch (2950-like behaviour).

Last year, Cisco started releasing their new xDSL routers, 860, 880, and 890.

No matter what router or AP model you choose, you need to do a Wireless LAN Site Survey so you will know whereto deploy your AP how may AP's to deploy.

If you want an affordable solution, then Linksys products can be a way to go, however, if you want to go down the Cisco path ... let us know!
