There are WAP devices offering 802.11n wireless with 10/100 ethernet port for adding wireless to an ethernet LAN.
As an alternative, would I get better performance if I use an 802.11n wireless gigabit router to connect to my ethernet Router (instead of the WAP) - thereby adding wireless to the network.
I plan to install the wireless router and connect only one of the router's 10/100/1000 ports either to my ethernet LAN's Linksys RSV4000 gigabit router or to a Netgear Prosafe GS108 gigabit switch. The wireless router will be about 100 feet from the hardwired router (for best wireless reception/coverage of 3000 sq ft office)
The LAN is using a single IP addressing scheme throughout. DHCP services come from the hardwired router. Total of 13 users, mixed environment of desktops and laptops, smartphones.
I'd appreciate any recommendations or comments. Budget is limited <$250. Thanks.
