I am having issues with a network with one of my clients and am trying to find the most affordable solution for them. Theyhave a wired/wireless network with 8 - 10 wired computers and 30+ laptops that are needed to connect wirelessly. They have just switched from one service provider (1.5 MBPS) to a new one (15 MBPS) but are still esperiencing complete drops.
Once 15 or more computers are connected, they lose their connection all together whether it be wireless or wired or mixed. They are using 2 Linksys WAP200 access points with an older D-Link router to route everything (can't remember the exact model). Rebooting the router seems to resolve the issue temporarly...
I feel that the router is not able to handle that much load and therefore require an upgrade. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?
I have looked into Cisco routers, Linux routing machines and various other possible solutions but just do not know which path to take. A ot of the cableing in this building has just been re-sone as well in an attempt to resolve this issue which has helped but not good enough. It is a church/school which requires their internet access for exams and other time sensitive materials.
Thank you in advance.
