Ubiquiti has some nice APs:

The nice part is that there is a managment software to control which 
clients are connected where.  This would reduce the problems with clients 
stomping on each other.

Pros:
   * 2x2 MIMO radios
   * Managed
   * 11n protocol
   * Dirt cheap ($200 for 3-Pack of APs to cover NB)
   * Free(beer) controler software
   * Software runs on linux (can be run in a VM on stallion)
   * PoE powered
Cons:
   * No 5.8ghz radios (yet)

Supposedly they'll have dual-band radios out in 2012.
