Outside the shaft and it has worked reasonably well.  It depends on what your 
design goals are.  If you are looking for absolutely no drops then you might 
need a AP in the car, but that probably messes with AP in the floors around the 
shaft as the car travels.  We wanted reasonably good coverage without trying to 
get local Fire Marshall approval of shaft installation.  As more and more Wi-Fi 
installations start to look at dynamic channel/power levels for SDR, then 
physically traveling AP would seem to be nightmare but maybe it just me. :)

Hi Todd.  Are your APs inside or outside the shaft?

Our design here involved an AP every other floor at the elevator door and that 
has worked very well.  Our design is a 3 AP coverage design at -63 dBm for 
first AP coverage and we have had pretty good luck with elevator coverage.
