Hi Everyone, I want to setup wireless network and need your advice.

Here is a diagram.

I'm a photographer and I need to setup a network for 2 laptop that link to 1 printer and 1 projector for event and wedding at hotel reception and ballroom. 2 photographers will be walkaround between the reception and ballroom to shoot and wifi back to 2 laptop for printing and projecting. There will be heavy human traffic and the brick wall and door are insulated. The reception is 100 by 50meter and the ballroom is 100 by 100meter.

My concern is to have a wireless router that can penetrate the insulated wall to reach the extender, the range extender can provide further distance 100 to 200 meter. Wireless Access Point will not work because the door gap is so small even not enough for the cat5 cable to go underneath to the wireless router. Need your advice for products from Hawking that can meet this situation.

Here is the camera wifi device that I'm using:

Thank you.

A brick wall, even insulated, is not at all a WiFi barrier, as it emits no EM frequency, nor is it an EM absorber. My advice would be to place the WiFi repeater mid-way along the center barrier between the rooms, and adjust the distant laptop accordingly. A 100m path over 802.11n over good antennas should be able to keep a 300Mb/s transit cleanly over that area. The only concern would be if your cameras are set up with EyeFi cards, which tend to have a rather sharp signal fall-off and shorter range.

I'm also a photographer (maybe not to your scale), but in unusual environments I keep 100m CAT6 cable segments for interlinking, and prefer to have the main rigs linked by copper with only one WiFi point set to handle portable devices. Ideally, in an environment like this, I would demand that all PCs could be grouped together (though the wall may intersect the group) and linked via cable, and set up a single WiFi point for the cameras.
