Question ID: 160013
I am looking for an access point to install at each subsriber's location. The product must be 802.11b compatible and I need to mount it directly onto a poll to get it up above the tree line. I'd imagine the entire device would be self contained and weatherproof and would include a highly directional antenna. Hopefully only one Cat5 wire would come from the poll-mounted access point down into the subscriber's house, where it would connect to thier computer and a power injector. Basically I am looking for a <a href=http://188.8.131.52/mainsite/html/equip.html>Motorola Canopy</a> Subscriber Module, except for 802.11b rather than Motorola's propritary protocol (and hopefully cheaper than theirs too). Does anything like this already exist in a ready-made product? I'd hate to start making these myself out of LinkSys APs, Tupperware, and soder.

Hi bigjosh-ga, A company known as Young Design, Inc. (YDI) makes just the product you are looking for: they make two pole-mountable Wireless Access Points, known as the UNIPOP Economy Version and the UNIPOP Amplified Version. "UNIPOP Economy Version" http://www.ydi.com/products/unipop-economy.php "UNIPOP Amplified Version" http://www.ydi.com/products/unipop-amplified.php These units are the wireless access points themselves, and need additional equipment (namely the pole-mountable antenna) to function. After the antenna is mounted, then only one wire needs to be strung from the pole to the WAP receiver itself (as you requested in your question). The type of antenna that you would purchase would vary depending on the client's needs and planned use, but the following antennas are also marketed by YDI to go along with the UNIPOP unit: "2.4 Ghz Antennas" http://www.ydi.com/products/24ghz-antennas.php As you will note, the first three antennas are omni-directional, which are probably the ones of interest to you, judging by your question. I hope this information is of assistance to you. If you need any additional clarification, feel free to ask, -rmn-ga
