Even RB493G will handle your setup just fine, but if in the future you plan to increase customer base, and upgrade your WAN speed, you can go with the RB1100 series

you can do either, RouterOS supports WPA/2 EAP

And hotspot authorization will work in both AP's? I mean with 802.1x and just with WPA

PS. authentication only by a password, so it must be a PEAP, do i need 802.1x AP?
