I have taken on a job of supplying WiFi in a 40 acre RV park.

This is going to be kinda of a running log on top of that for help.
This is what i have and any input on device would be greatly accepted.

Now for the fun stuff. I cant run wires to anything. I can run power but cannot run Ethernet cable to anything. So it will be all wireless as far as in the signal.
As far as the main router i was going to run with smoothwall or the DD-WRT computer router base to handle the load.

I was planning on using these for the access points.

This is where i was thinking of placing the antennas. The clubhouse off the right is where the main feed will be.

The blue dots are areas where the video was taken
The yellow dots are antenna placement.

it seams good enough placement, really won't really know without signal tests. only other thing i can think of is waterproof the boxes and make sure you have a small exhaust system so they don't over heat and stop working as routers are known to do. Wireless monitoring software may help keep track of abusing users and filter system may be a good thing for the client to have incase they want to regulate their service. but as for the mapping i would of not been far off myself in the same plan.

Just make sure there is enough cooling for long term use and when there is lots of traffic through the wifi as access points will heat up at some stage when there is excessive downloading.

Other then that, this sounds like a fun job really. wish i was doing it. keep us posted on the results.

If you can get a power socket at each AP then you could add boosters to the signal but should not loose too much through the RV's tho. Just AMP the signal if you need to.
