Ok guys, thanks in advance. I'm setting up a network for a 41 bedroom "house". It was a hotel once upon a time and is essentially turning in to a non-douchebag co-ed frat. My awesome blueprint (building is a square: X0_________________0 0___________________0 Here's what I'm thinking. Hallways are about 100ft in length each. Nice room where the cable comes in where the X is in the corner. Build a PFsense linux box with 4 LAN cards 3 cable modems going in and a line going out to switches. all in the corner with the X 2 switches (also at the X) 24 port each maybe cisco 3550? Suggestions? 4 edimax wireless access points. One in each corner. 8 if needed. Linked here and 0's on my awesome layout. Ethernet in every room (I hate wifi) I'm planing on going in the ceiling at the X and running the cables to the rooms and the WAP's I think I will be pushing the range on the CAT5e at some points so might have to make some changes. I'm also wondering if there is simply a way better way to set this up I'm not thinking about. Basically looking for wifi over the whole 12,000 sqft and ethernet lines in all the rooms plus a few spots. I'm not a newb but I'm not a seasoned networking professional either. I understand all the basics and subneting and the difference between a switch and hub etc but I could be missing a lot. If any of you are in San Francisco you're welcome to drink my beer as a way of saying thanks.
