Which terminal server?

Folks, I built a monster lab at home with 13 routers and 6 switches on my garage.

Assuming I can get wireless connectivity on the garage, is there any terminal server out there which could let me connect via wireless then access few routers via the terminal server?

Alternatively, if you tell me there is no such wireless enabled terminal server I think if I put an old laptop there connected via console cable to routers and then I could get to it via Windows remote desktop.

Most people still uses 2511 for that. You connect via an AP to make it wireless.

Sorry for the stupid question, but how can you connect the 2511 again to AP? I have seen antenas for 1841's but I do not think the 2511 would accept that?

Are you saying a laptop connected to router 2511?

AP connected to the ethernet port of 2511 (ugly transceiver actually). Use an old hub or crossed cable.
