Hi Folks,

Can anyone recommend an enterprise model router for a medium/small business?  I have a site that is connecting to their wireless fine (signal is strong) but randomly,  folks are getting dropped from the wireless.  Or if they are trying to connect more than 10 laptops sometimes not everyone can connect.  They have Comcast business cable so I don’t think bandwidth is the problem. Last spring when we upgraded to cable, all network equipment was upgraded to gigabyte units. Any wiring used is all cat5e.  There are still 2 desktops and 2 network printers in the mix as well.

This is a learning center and when they do online testing, dropping in the middle of it is really problematic. They have over 30 laptops, not to mention other devices that the staff walk in with (phones, i-pads) and rarely are they all in use, but but it has happened. Or rather been attempted.

I have the opportunity to put in for approx $1000 for this line item, though if there is no solution in that price range, I can make a case for more. Unfortunately the request has to go in in the next couple of days and I have no history purchasing one of these.

Anyone have any recommendations on routers that can handle that, or which mftr would be reliable to look at?
