Hello from Spain,

I have tested a Robin Mesh Network using Robin on Foneras and I am very happy.

Now I would like to replace the foneras with an exterior AP...

Engenius 1650, 2610 and 2611 seem impposible to find in Spain.

I have reviewed the supported hardware wiki page (http://www.robin-mesh.net/Supported_hardware) but it seems a bit outdates...

Please, could you recommend me an AP compatible with Robin and easy to buy? Thanks.

hola,

Ubiquiti Pico2 (or Pico2-HP) are really good products:

What's wrong with an OM1P in the outdoor enclosure?

I'm not sure if the problem has been fixed, but I had serious lockup problems with Pico's on brown-outs. It required a power off for about 30 seconds or more to recover.

The OM1P watchdog is incredible!

OM1P is great because of reliability and the watchdog. Definitely the easiest node to use and keep up, but it is under powered. I can only cover the house to each side of the one with the OM1P. That means that hop count goes up quick.

I love the Pico2HP!....When it works. Very powerful node but is VERY temperamental. I have decided they are not worth the headaches caused by the outages.

I have moved to the Engenius 2611P and if you put 3 of them on a pole facing opposite directions you will get the best coverage I have ever seen! I have two of these connected at over 7000 ft. (If I can saolve the problem I am having getting them to connect as gateways. I think it is a problem with my system not the nodes but worth mentioning)
