What some may need to do is..
Try such a thing. Given the variety of construction of the buildings no one will tell you "There, this will work." But it's fine start.
Does the place already have wired network ports?
I'm presuming he wants to cater to the business travelers with laptops. If he hasn't done so already and doesn't have wired networking, he might want to survey guests to see what they prefer. Wired is still far more reliable than wireless. My company provided IBM laptop has both wired and wireless but I definitely would opt for wired as first choice in a motel.
Have the same project...
I also doing project like this but still don't have any clue on making this done... and I also think about using the Omni-Directional Outdoor Wireless Antenna.. But recently my friend told me that it is better to use a couple of Access Point and then connect all the Access Point to a switch or hub via RJ45 cable. I still don't know weather this will work since our project is still in discussion. As I know using an outdoor antenna is less expensive than buying a couple of Access Point or Wireless Router... but will it work? I don't know. Hope you can tell me the experience on using the outdoor antenna.
Those that do and those that discuss.
The brutal truth is there are two roads here. If you drive forward with even one access point and that antenna you will discover what areas are not covered and need their own WAP.
The people I seen trying to plan their way often end up in planning for months or end up in an overkill solution.
Nice and good example of
What you want to do in overkill, IT and CYA situations.
