One of my biggest clients is about to purchase a 56000 square foot building with about 200 offices. we are going to have two lines coming into the building. downstairs (day school, less computers) and upstairs (offices). Although we are going to set up most the computer hard wired we still need wireless. we want to have two different wireless networks, downstairs and upstairs. I'm am not sure what access point would be the best for what we are doing or how many I will need, i know i need at least two but most likely 4 or 6. We are about to Order the router and a few switches(Cisco SLM-2048T-NA). we also have two UNIX based firewall-honeypots for each line. if that matter for any reason. The two are Comcast Business Class-Static IPs

That question is near impossible to answer properly without a wireless site survey. Many factors affect wireless signal strength. You also need to determine how many connections each access point will need to accept.
