    My experience only extends to a small Wireless Home network using Linksys's WAP-11 Base. The Linksys station allow up to 11 access points. There is other equipment for larger operation.
    Here is an explaination on how a University set up thier equipment and also attached are two manufatures of wireless
    Equipment.

    The question is how many users does this resturant expect to have on line at one time.

    I have experience with the wireless HUBs from DLINK. Works fine, but moving the base station around can greatly improve reception and speed. Experiment, right next to your computer might not be the best place for your base station. Mine's on the opposite wall, approx 1.7 m high
