    I tried viewing the diagrams several ways (notepad using courier, the
    program that was used to create it, etc), unfortunately none were very

    Let's go back to the basics.

    From here on out you add switches or wireless access points (WAPs) as
    needed on each network. If you have wires running from building to
    building then you will need one each for each network. If you are
    wireless between buildings each network will need its own wireless
    connections. Because of building construction you may even need to hard
    wire between floors and then put WAPs (or switches) on each floor (put
    the WAPs on different channels to help minimize interference).

    Due to the complexity of your situation I'm not sure I can be of much
    more help using a newsgroup as our communication method. Maybe someone
    else in the newsgroup can give more detailed information to help you.

    Thanks ken.

    Strangely I cut and pasted and it worked. But those darn auto wrapping
    things in the news groups and in notepad sometimes screw things up.

    Thanks for your diagram. Your solution is the cleanest and best. Part
    of my problem is the fact that the network already exists. And its
    pretty much like a tree eg it starts at the trunk where the signal
    comes in and then brances off in all directions. Each brance has
    routers and switchs and wifi. To set up the network in your
    configuration really means re wireing a second cable to all the places
    that need wifi access. Perhaps not an impossible feat but none the
    less strenuous.

    Regards and thank you.
