    ok this guy owns a hotel and needs a wireless server put in. He wants me to do it. What he has is a Dell poweredge 2600. He wants it to be wireless to all 150 or so of his rooms. Kind o0f like one huge hotspot for wireless computers. I want to know how to do it because I have never done anything like this before. Please help me.

    than they either have to have their own wireless pc cards or you supply & setup 1 for the duration of their stay & get back the card when they check out.

    you'll need 150 plus 15 spare wireless pc cards for laptops. 1 or more wireless routers to handle 150 computers. you'll have to check out how many pc cards a router can handle. if using cable than either get the highest speed or get a t1 service as you'll need the bandwidth for 150 computers
