Just need a few things confirmed about these Accesspoints / adaptors
We'll have two PC's about 20 meters as the crow flies but over two floors - I'm not sure one access point will be able to serve both PC's.
Is it possible to roam using 802.11a? (so we'll be chaining up two access points closer together, one of whih will serve one of the PC's). And will the Intel products support it?

If not, can anyone recommend the best 802.11b solution for this? Ultimate speed is not a huge issue so I'm quite happy with 802.11b but 1MBit DSL speed (for Internet sharing) must at least be preserved within the network.

Thanks!
