Wireless Access Points recomendations

We are getting ready to build a new facility and would like to install WAPs throughout the building. The building will be approximately 26000 sq feet downstairs and 24000 sq feet upstairs. I am looking for basically 1 "master" device and several "repeaters." I do not want to have to configure each AP, I just want all but one accesspoint to relay the signal, I do not want a module to put in my switch either. I need 2 SSIDs, one that can be authenticated and gain access to the corporate network and another for guest that will be able to just be able to get on the Internet.

hi chris, i think if i dont't wanna use a switch controller module you may choose a external MSM module, you can look at the new procurve portfolio MSM 710, MSM 730 and MSM 750, for the controllers, there's the mobility version for support to layer 3 roamming and there's the access version without layer 3 roamming beside that all the features are equal, the MSM-710 for 10 AP´s the MSM 730 for 50 AP's and the MSM 750 for 200 AP´s and that's the options you have for the controllers. For the AP's you have a lot of option too, you can choose from single/dual/tri radio and from a/b/g/n, you have also outdoor options in Procurve portfolio so now is to you decide the best option for your interests, i can help you choose the right AP and explain some features of the AP.
