Well I mean it will depend on the size of your house and what your walls are made out of etc. but two should be plenty. You'll also need PoE injectors (or their also expensive AC adapters, assuming you don't have a PoE switch lying around) for power.

i have a ccna wireless laying around somewhere ( and possibly a routing and switching, a security, and maybe a ccda ( and currently struggling with CEH, im fine on the network side, but its the application side i lack knowledge in), and you are right, 2 is plenty. Ive been plagued with how smooth proper wlc wifi that ive set up works compared with my home lan, and have for ages wanted to do something about it, but cant justify the cost of a wlc sitting under my stairs. I work in construction in an electronic security company, so i don't get to play with many IT toys, just what the job justifies. I am currently using a cisco sf200-24p at home, but without a suitable router, i cant make proper use of it, but that's a spare 6 poe ports there right now. Those ap's suit my needs perfectly!  cheers mitch

nothing when they work, but a pain to get vigin to replace when they don't. Mine drops wifi signal from time to time, approx 3 times a day for a couple of mins each time, and the kids make a racket over it. Virgin wont replace it, they tell me its interference, but its not, ive proven it with another router which works perfectly. But as i want better wifi anyways, im not going to push it anymore, their kit doesnt suit what i  want to do
