new building - seamless wireless access
I am building out a new office space. 7200 sq feet with many individual offices. I would like to provide one seamless wireless network throughout the space such that you can walk around the entire office without switching wireless networks.
I will also provide many wired ethernet jacks throughout the space - I'm comfortable with that setup. What I want to know is what is the best way to have multiple access points operate together to provide great coverage throughout the space with no deadspots.
A bit more info - In my current location I have a linux box configured as a router with 3 nics one goes to the internet, one goes to a wired network (multiple computers on a switch behind the router) and one goes to a wireless router. In the new building I would like many wireless access points to connect to a second switch just for the wireless access points. I would like the wireless access points to be true access points and not routers and let the linux box handle all the dhcp.
To summarize I would have a linux box connected to the internet acting as my router / firewall. two internal nics each going to a switch. One switch for wired connections and one switch for wireless access points.
Specific recommendations for access point brands / models and information or links on how to set them up as multiple access points for the same network.
Also, any guesses as to a good number of access points to use in order to provide excellent coverage for a single story, 7200 sq ft building with many 10 x 10 offices?
Thanks in advance
