Lesson learned.

The best changes to often. And 20 devices to one would be quite bad. WIFI air space is only half duplex and shared (which you would know.)

So my best solution would be to get wired what I can and then depending on the situation (small office, corp office) make choices accordingly as to the brand and support.

The small office can use what you get at office stores. Corp types get the big gear (and bills) from the names.

Yes but didn't answer the question

The alternating connection is something I know about, but I was looking into maybe some options. I wasn't really looking for one single device, maybe I should have clarified. Sorry about that.

I would like to hear what people have used on their networks and are happy with.(make & model) I've read a lot into the Linksys by Cisco and even have some of their products, problem is, they tend to not be too reliable. I see a lot of comments on them breaking, of course I have to consider that people like to tell their horror stories and less happy-go-lucky stories are a rare commodity.

In general, what do you guys use on your networks for wireless? And how well do you like it. What issues do you normally have and how simple are they to get resolved.

Please don't post your horror stories here, I'm looking for good hardworking devices not flimsy $40 Linksys Access points that you get to restart every few days. (I'm not ruling out Linksys so if you have a good one let me know)

What I'm using today.

Netgear WRN2000 with no issues. Then again it is setup per the Cnet networking forum. We use a linksys WPGS606 as a client to other none-wifi machines.

The wifi routers are set to 802.11g only mode to help connections to wifi printers.

Hope that helps.
