I've been reviewing the WiFi hotel deployment doc which is very interesting. Couple of questions;
1) It mentions setting the different access points channels to 1,6, and 11 - is this from left to right (down the building)?
I always thought that one access point should be as far away from others as possible - if this is true I would think it would be 1, 11, 6 then...?
2) It mentions mounting the access points on top of drop ceiling - "position above drop ceilings with little signal loss by using the keyholes located on the bottom of the unit"
I don't understand what is meant by using the keyholes - can someone elaborate on what this means exactly? Would you be better off using a ceiling mount product like the EAP-3660 if this is what you're looking to do?

What about QoS?
I need a set of devices for a small hotel. It's 4 floor hotel with 20 rooms. I've done survey and I estimated I will need 3 EAP350's for optimum coverage. My concern is Qos. Your article doesn't mentioning it at all.

hello, QOS would be done on the router or gateway device and it would be a different configuration in every case based on available bandwidth number of users and the services you want to allow the guests to access.
All current routers have basic QOS features a nomadix gateway would have more fine tuneable parameters.
The engenius access points also have rate limiting so you could divide you internet connection bandwidth by the number of access points and set that value. This way no one user or AP will be able to monopolize your connection.

Hey - just wanted to post here since I saw your "Deploying Wi-Fi in the Hospitality Industry..." I sent you PM in regards to a statement you made, but excellent advice and knowledge. I just wanted to point that out to any uncertain individuals browsing through.

Can someone suggest a device that will register and manage users?
For example, connect to the network, use browser that goes to registration page, enter a code and that MAC address is good for a day.
