1200, 1100 or 350's for Office WLAN?

We are working to install 3 floors worth of wireless in our office building, Which AP's would be the recomended ones? From what I take, the only differance between the three is upgradability. Is this correct?

Re: 1200, 1100 or 350's for Office WLAN?

If you want to run dual band then the 1200 is the one to get The 1200 can run either IOS or VxWorks

The AP1100 is very price effective and the radios can be field replaced if you want to change to 802.11g when it comes out but has fixed antenna Runs IOS only

The AP350 is the oldest model of the 3 and is a fixed configuration 802.11b radio that can not be hardware upgraded in the future (firmware updates are avaliable) but can be ordered with removeable antenna so you can use higher gain ones if need be

At this point in time it only runs VxWorks

The best one really depends on the size of network and what future expansion you expect
