Re: Range of 1250 Access Point

I don't think manufacturers like to estimate "range" since this number depends on to many external variables. However, the wiki article ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11 ) for 802.11n estimates range at 70 meters (230') compared to 38 meters (125') of 802.11g. I think these are indoor numbers in an open/cubicle environment at maximum throughput.

I'm guessing Cisco doesn't want to dig itself into a hole by marketing ranges that may not be possible.

42! Which is as good an answer as any. The 70m range might work open air, no obstructions. In the real world - that's why you hang 'em like ornaments from the ceiling tiles with coat hanger wire and do a site survey.

Cisco offers 5000 square feet per AP as a very rough rule of thumb for indoor WLAN design. That works out to a cell radius of about 40 feet.

You don't know anything for sure until you do a survey, though.
