I recently bought a Ubiquity Bullet M5 Titanium and a small outdoor ZyXel antenna. This piece of kit rocks quite seriously. I did an outdoor test with my iPad Mini connected to CL StageMix, placed the antenna outside of my warehouse door, and started walking.I got at least 200 meters down before I even started to see any kind of lagging, and that was only when the iPad was in the shadow of my body. At exactly 300 meters from the antenna (which was 1.8 meters off the ground), the connection started to become unstable, but at 250m or more - no problems.So this thing is pretty powerful. It died on me on a gig recently, though. I've just gotten a new one from the dealer, so we'll see....hopefully it lasts a bit longer.But when it works - it's really great. It's only an access point, so i most cases, you'll probably want a switch or router to plug it into (if you want to connect more than one device), but it's real handy, since it's rain proof and lives off Power over Ethernet, so you can have it on a Cat5-cable with a length of your choice, so it's easy to tie to a speaker, truss or whatever and get it high up in the air.
I use a EnGenius ENS500EXT WAP, running at 5GHz, and it's been rock solid in large indoor spaces and outdoors as well. Not expensive, good UI, easy to configure. It will require using a static IP address on the iPad (like Frederik's Ubiquity Bullet, it can serve as a router with DHCP, or a wireless access point, but not both). +1 to Riley's recommendation. If you're running Windows, get a copy of InSSIDer and use it to find open channels in the 5GHz range.
