Wireless Router / AP for 200 users.

Looking for a wireless router/modem that we can configure here, and then just take with us, plug into a wall somewhere, and have the capacity for an event.  In past events we've used the same off-the-shelf wireless routers that we have in the office now, but they start to choke and die at around 40 people. The events are 50-100 people; capacity to 200 would be great.

Assume the wired connection is good enough to handle it.

I'm not sure if the Cisco SMB will have something similar, but maybe even I have to go towards the Enterprise portfolio.

Any suggestions?

Cisco Enterprise wireless portfolio are the 1040, 1140, 1250, 1260, 3500i/e model WAP.  You'll may need a WLC if you use the 3500i/e.  Cisco recommends no more than 25 users associated to an AP.  So for about 200 people, you'll need about 8 APs spread apart.

You can start by going to the website:  www.cisco.com/go/wireless.
