WDS deployment

Hi

I have to propose a Wi-Fi zone for a university.There are around 8 floors and I plan to go with 1200 series

A simple solution which would come to your mind is 1231g (IOS) installed in WDS mode.Documents shows that

Client1==AP1==WDS==AP2==client2

will work fine. AP1 and AP2 are in range with WDS master on which I will terminate internet connectivity with ethernet handoff.

Great! Now the design specific problem I am facing that there is nowhere written or shown that

Client1==AP1==AP2==AP3==WDS==AP4==AP5==client2\

would work.AP1 and AP2 are not in direct wireless range with WDS. So is AP5.

So will this work.

The idea is to deploy 2 APs per floor and both the floors' APs should work in WDS so that I would not have to lay ethernet for each AP.

Pardon me for being silly.....

Also I have seen that there is around 50% signal degradation (3-4dB) loss per floor.Will above setup work?

Pardon me for being silly.....:)

Any ideas? comments?

Thanks in advance.

JD
