    Choosing the wireless router

    Hi I was recently asked to pick a wireless router to set up internet access for a classroom/lab in the small institute that I teach at. There are 30 atendees taking 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of class every day for 9 months. They need access to the web, and ability to share files, perhaps a printer, etc.
    Does anyone have any experience in any particular wireless routers that can handle the load very well. Ballbark figures for the cost would also be apreciated. I want to set up a separate DMZ behind that router to keep the crap that they brin away from our main router (CISCO1700).

    For 30 students in a class the cisco is not worth the extra money.
    If you are going to be supplying it for the entire campus then yes, get the cisco, if not, get the linksys

    If you are in a professional environment, anything less than the cisco is shooting yourself in the foot. Have you tried getting 30 concurrent users to associate with a linksys AP? Try it.
