Add'l Info

Typical home based routers and wireless routers are quite slow when more then 20-30 users are online at the same time.  For an application such as a Campground, Marina or RV Park, where a client has more then 50 users online at any given time, a more commercial grade wireless router, such as the Cisco RV042 should be installed.  Although this is not a wireless router, this cisco router can be connected to high power wireless access points for long range wireless, or connected to a range extender.   More commercial grade routers can actually set an upload/download speed so that no single user can "hog" all available bandwidth.  Such a router would be the RV042, or ER5120.  

These higher end routers also have faster processors to handle more users.  To see how many users are accessing your network at any given time, log into the web based configuration of the router, and navigate to the DHCP list page.  This will give you a real time estimate of how many users are on the network.  If you see a certain time of day that the network bogs down, log in to the router again, and see how many users.  Most likely you will see a large number of people using the wireless or wired network, which would be a reason to upgrade the router.

The best wireless router to use, in our recommendation is one in which you are familiar with.  Depending on the application, GNS Wireless might recommend a RV042 for one application, and may recommend a cheaper wireless n router for another application.  It really depends on how many users, what type of usage, and what type of features you would like available for your wireless network.  With these types of wireless routers, you will not be able to configure a "router repeater".  The wireless access point will control the long range wireless functionality, not the router.  Routers alone will control the connection to your cable/dsl modem, control the DHCP table, security features such as VPN and remote access, and bandwidth control.  All other features such as wifi boosters, wireless boosters, and wifi signal boosters will be the responsibility of the wireless access point.  Other quality indoor routers would be the linksys e3000, linksys e4200 and the TP-Link WR1043ND.  These would be some of the best wireless routers to use for small office, or home office use.

The 802.11 N Wireless N300 Gigabit Router from TP-Link can be used as a wireless booster, or wireless extender depending on your application.  The configuration of this router will allow you to change the settings such as channel size, security, or access point vs router mode.  Adding range extenders to this type of setup will increase range, but not exactly increase speed.  When wireless repaters are used the throughput of the connection to the wireless repeater will decrease depending on distance, interference, and wireless mode.  The best wifi signal booster is to use an external access point for extending the range of the wireless network.  Such a wireless booster would be the APC2M, which has up to 1000mW transmit power and your choice of external antenna.  Another option is the APC2M-8, which has an integrated 8dBi directional patch antenna.  This will boost your wifi signal in one direction, up to 60 degrees, and works very well in applications such as warehouses, or externally for campground, RV Parks, or Marinas.  The best wireless router to use with either of those access points is the one you are familiar with, or choose the 802.11 N Wireless N300 Gigabit Router from TP-Link.
