I'm considering Buffalo AirStation High Power N450 Gigabit Wireless Router as an wifi access point only in a manufacturing machine shop 50 ft x 125 ft area. Good coverage of the area is more important than transfer speed. There are no inside walls, all open area. Would this be able to do the job?

I ran across this goldmine a few months back when looking into upgrading my own wifi network. There's a wealth of information to make a more well-informed decision. Once you've plumbed those depths, check out the rest of the SmallNetBuilder site - tons of great information.
The Buffalo hardware doesn't seem to hold up too well against other brands, for the most part.
