I would not be to much worried about RF leakage. The problem is that
even high quality "low loss" cable has a fairly high loss in the 2.5
GHz range. Not to talk about the cost of that cable and proper
connectors... In other words: It is cheaper and more effective to have
multiple accesspoints and place them at the point where they are needed.
