Ubiquiti Networks makes a really good line of wireless access point that are cheap, reliable, and come with a central management/statistics tool that is free, has no yearly fee, and is very well done. 

Check them out at http://www.ubnt.com/unifi

Last May we spent $239.70 per access point (Unifi AP Pro's) through CDWG.  No other fees ever, and firmware updates are free for life, as are updates for the management software. They have been rock-solid and very easy to manage.

Subject: [Michlib-l] Need for wireless stats.

Hello all, 

Now that we all need to provide statistics showing wireless usage in our libraries to the State, I am wondering what other reasons there might be for collecting this information. Is it worth putting a lot of money into equipment to gather these stats? For those libraries who already have equipment to gather these stats, what else do you use this information for?
