I'd like to know more about your setting.  Do your gateway daemons run
on the auth server itself (with possibly 7 wireless cards)  Where are
your access points and what kind of hardware do you use for that?  I'm
curious to know if 200 users per gateway can be reached without
enterprise grade hardware.
