I am trying to choose the right device for a mostly unattended outdoor access point. I will be paying for it out of my own pocket so cost is an issue. I know Ubiquiti products have a good reputation. The Bullet has a good form factor, and presumably is durable in an outdoor situation. I believe that it has 4mb flash, 16 mb of memory, but lots of other candidate devices have 32mb.
I get the impression that Bullet devices were intended as clients and not designed with a large number of wireless devices in mind.
Is a Bullet M2 or M2HP a good choice for an access point serving 6-12 simultaneous users? Is anyone using one in a similar situation?
Has anyone tried the Alfa Tube-U(N) which has a very similar form factor?
