I live in Germany and I'm a beginner in w-lan planning and installing, but now I got the order to improve an existing wireless network or - if it's not possible - to create a complete new one.
The w-lan is for use in a company's grounds.
The big problem I have is that I haven't got the necessary knowhow to plan and install/configure a w-lan.
The company already has a wireless network, but it's not working perfectly.
There are areas on the company grounds where the network can't be used because of w-lan dead zones.
There are three such zones where the network can't be used.
Look - these are the facts about the whole company grounds:
Complete area: 300 x 300 meters.
There are two big hangars (each 100 x 100 x 8 meters, no concrete walls).
What is the network used for:
There is a intranet webserver (windows + apache) on which a php application is running.
The company's staff has smart phones (which are already bought !) to use the intranet web application.
The installed web browser is opera mobile.
Look: The application works fine. Really.
Everything is ok - except these three zones where the wireless lan doesn't work.
Now it need help and advice what to do.
At the moment there are a w-lan router and an access point which are installed, but obviously they haven't enough power.
How could I solve the dead zone problem?
Is anybody there who can give me advice?
Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend.
