We're expanding our office and i've been tasked with getting a wireless solution for us.

My boss wants the a cool technologically driven office (LET ME BUY A BLADE SERVER AND VIRTUALIZE THE REST OF OUR PHYSICAL BOXES DAMMIT! lol)

Anyway, i've gotten it down to the following..

I always hear amazing things about ASUS routers, so they might be worth looking to.

I don't know how much you want to spend and how experienced you are with networking devices, but if it were me, I'd use something like a Cisco 1900 series router, a Meraki switch for the wired LAN and a Meraki AP for the WLAN. There's nothing cool about a Cisco 1900 series, it just works and it's reliable, but Meraki stuff is simply awesome.

Sorry, I meant to link the new Asus RT-AC68U in the original post.

The more suggestions the better. The local network will be supporting around 40 users on a regular basis, i'd say half of them attach their cell phones to the wifi. Throughput is important as each user's computer is basically a glorified workstation using services located in my server room.

Do they all have a network jack at their desks? You should have them plug in when they don't need to be wireless. Either way with that many devices, you'll want more than one WAP.
