Hello,
I think that the Ubiquiti Rocket M2 can be used as an excellent outdoor 802.11n mesh node. Because it costs less than $90 and it's a 2x2 MIMO device, it allow a maximum data rate of 300Mbps and uses RP-SMA (for low-cost antennae). Also it has a powerful 400MHz processor and 64MB of RAM.

What do you think?

Basically it's going to take new kernel, new code, new driver, etc...

I think there is a lot of cool equipment out there, but first question is what is the status of OpenWRT on it? What driver does it use? That's where I would start because without proper OpenWRT support, Open-Mesh/Robin is not going to work. Would be cool though.

And what about the openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-jffs2-64k.bin firmware, it supports the processor the Atheroa r7141.

Of course.
I pre-ordered one. When there is stock of the product I will receive it and try flashing the device Wink

It is supported in the newest trunk of OpenWRT, atleast I see mention of it, but I can without a doubt say at the moment your not going to get the same results as the AirOS. I've been playing with ath9k for awhile now.

I was reading the UBNT forums, and the community said that the Rocket M2 with 2 omni antennae isn't a good idea, because of the interference between these one.

Anyone knows an omni antenna (2.4GHz) with dual-pol support?

best regards

yup.. Get two omni's.. Keep one oriented straight up (vertical Pol) and lay the other 90 degress horizontal.... voila.. dual polarity!

haha..thats a good one.. you could use some pigtails to seperate two vertically polarized omni's but i dont think the diversity function would gain too much.. on a more serious note there are slotted horizontal omni antennas.. i suppose one horizontal and one normal vertical would work
