Wireless infrastructure question

We have been interested in wireless campuses and/or wireless common areas of campuses. However, our existing routing structure does not have room to add 25-30 access points.

We would like to add new Cisco Routers that have the wireless management capability built into them, and attach the APs to these new routers.

Will the grant process allow us to do that, or will we have to fund the new Router out of our own funds?

Essentially, without the new router, the wireless infrastructure we're trying to build won't work...

Just looking for clarifications, thanks.

Apparently no hardware is required to manage the AP

Apparently no hardware is required to manage the Wireless Access Points. There IS hardware that helps with management and rollout of wireless systems, but it is not required for them to work the way we want them to. Thanks for the follow up. Michael Williams IT Director Wallowa County ESD

Clarification coming.
