    Hi Guys. What would the ramifications be if one had 25 or so wireless G access points spread across a medium-sized office, all operating on the same 2-3 channels. What would the severity of interference be?

    I know there are more factors involved but I am trying to just get an idea. Thanks.

    EDIT: Also, I'm fairly certain that like channels are overlapping.

    25 APs? We use that many in a 900,000 sq ft warehouse.

    I think you could cut back quite a bit, unless your office space is of that size.

    For a specific answer, I'd recommend Cisco APs, as they will auto-detect what channel to use. I'm sure others do this as well, just not sure what vendors.
