I have had great success with Ruckus Wireless gear, specifically their 7962
access points.
Our offices are pretty noisy radio environments, typically over 70 access
points show up on scans, mostly in the 2.4 range though.
We use WPA2 with 802.11X for auth, plus a guest zone managed by the Ruckus
wireless controller, works smooth haven't had any problems so far.
Part of my decision was based on a Tom's Hardware review of access points:
