I am planning on upgrading about 40 Airports in my high school to 54M Airport Extremes. At around 170 a pop, and seeing LinkSys and D-Link going for less than half that, what are your thoughts on the "3rd-party" solution? I know about web versus client configuring, but does anyone have first-hand knowledge of a TRUE success story using the other models? I like saving taxpayer money, but first and foremost it HAS to work. (I will buy one and test it first, of course) The Airports I have (mostly Snow and a few Graphites) have done an excellent job. Only one has failed in 2 years, and one Extreme started generating excessive noise, so I tossed it. The network must handle BOTH b and g. I've looked at reviews, but haven't been satisfied. Thanks in advance for your help.
