wifi distribution in all concrete motel

wifi distribution in all concrete motel

wifi distribution in all concrete motel

I have a customer with a 5 story all concrete (walls, ceiling, floors everything) motel.
I have been putting in some wifi antenna's (engenius enh202) that work fairly well since I have access to storage rooms on each end and a storage closet up and down in the middle of the motel.
Things work fairly well but not great and I would like to know what other brands and models of ap's I might look at in the future since this may come up again.
I may get him to allow me to put some on the exposed ceilings in the hallways if it comes to it but I have not read good reviews on any of the engenius ceiling mount devices.

I am open to suggestions since I am not a wifi engineer by any means and want to keep it simple (for me) and cost effective.

Thanks for any ideas


RE: wifi distribution in all concrete motel

I've used EnGenius EAP 300 with very good results. These penetrate concrete / cinderblock walls nicely but there are definitely some limitations. They are 800mw access points that look like a smoke detector.
