Yes. I need some sort of system that gives me full coverage that will
leave a TCP/IP stream connected as devices get further or closer to a
particular AP.

Or, as you suggest:

Probably. The lot is 52x80 deep, the house is set back a ways, and I
could put the AP somewhere in the attic of the house, possibly near the
back.

House is plaster over button board, shop is similarly stick-built with
interior and exterior layers of 5/8" drywall. Still means that the
devices have to reach the AP, but...

...so what's the ass-kicking-est AP out there right now for under a few
hundred bucks? Or, what's the cheapest sort of system one might deploy
with a controller?
