It must have 4 or more wired ports, I dont want it to have built in ADSL

It must have a removable aerial

and It must have some sort of adjustable gain/ signal strength as we want to be able to wind the signal strength right down so that the coverage area for the wireless signal is very small.

Cheers

Such as?

I know we could use an encryption key but because of the type of work we are doing a encryption key would be a hassle

You can try with MAC address restriction, or use Hotspot if you don't want to use encription and yu want to controll the users...

Agree with the above - use MAC filtering and be done with it.

I also second the choice of a Linksys WRT54G capable of running open-source firmware (Tomato, DD-WRT). great bang for the buck.

I would try the Engenius 1650 or Engenius 2610, use a free hotspot account and then add your mac. They also support wireless meshing to cover more ground.
