I need to install 2-3 wireless access points in a factory, up in the ceiling to cover the area for mobile barcode scanners.
I've read reviews, specs and tech sheets. What I keep seeing is that normal residential APs like LinkSys, DLink and Netgear aren't really up to the task because no matter how good they are, at some point they freeze up and you need to manually reset the device. I can't do that since nobody is going to want to get a ladder and reset the thing every month or so.
I don't care about PoE or 802.11n since this is just barcode data, mostly text data. I need routers which will be "commercial grade" super reliable.
I need reliability at any cost -- how do I tell which routers will have that?
