Help Networking small hotel.

I am setting up a network for a small hotel. So far I have two LANs, a dmz and three WANs setup. One LAN is for the hotel office. The other LAN has two wireless access points in it and the owner wants a third access point. A vonage box is currently in line on one of the DSL connections before the router. The rule set prevents each zone from seeing all other zones.

My first question is if a wireless repeater is installed will it repeat all access points with in range of it?

Second question is would you move the vonage box into the DMZ? If you would move the vonage box would you use a sip proxy or port forward?

last question is do you think 16 rooms would be happy with three 6 down by 1 up DSL connections. The connections are load balanced. 500k down and 200k up is reserved for the office LAN on one of the DSL connections.

I looked at this post the other day and decided that I didn't know enough to answer it.

On reflection, I think these questions are best answered by the manufacturer of the repeater and by Vonage. I suspect that any repeater worth the money would have the configuration options to point it to a specific access point. Otherwise, it might pick up access points from the wireless in the facility next door.

Regarding Vonage, I've never used it, but I have used Ekiga, and there was no need to put it in the DMZ. I did, however, have to open the appropriate ports in my firewall and my router.
