Hi Manuel,

At 300-500 users you may still be in dd-wrt territory with the lack of
smart roaming and self-healing features mitigated by a price that
makes it practical to simply deploy more access points. Dumb roaming
can be good enough when the user count per AP is low.

Aruba it is not, but I had a 150 user deployment on 5 dd-wrt APs that
was largely trouble-free.
