I got a Ubiquiti Unifi AC Mesh recently and I plan to mount it on a tall mic stand and plug it into one of my Netgear routers with their radios off. Should be good for 400'.

For off the shelf wireless routers I have had excellent results with both a TP Link Archer C7 (about a $100) and a Netgear R7000 (about $150).
I operate both only on 5g.


There are times I feel I get touch more range with the TP link.
I use them with a Allen Heath QU Pac 32.

Just went with  the Netgear R700 (AC1900).. It may be called a Nighthawk in some markets.. Much faster than anything else I had so far

So, got things mounted up. I used a top hat and mounted the bracket for the AP and a mic mount for my paddle (for a remote speaker). Now I can easily get both up 10+'.

Got a photo Rob? Currently trying to solve the same problem of getting an AC Mesh on top of a mic stand.

For a one-nighter gaff tape works fine in my experience. The longer-term temporary solution that I've seen is to use a hose clamp through the AP and around the mic stand.

I was trying to come up with something a bit more elegant that doesn't require a tool. I fabricated a slip bracket that bolts to a top hat, but it's pretty ugly. Tried velcro but that slips down the stand.

Guess I'll take the AP to the big orange store and see what I can find.

I have a couple of pics I can post. Might only get one per post, we shall see.

The top hat and speaker stand (though was sold as lighting stand) are from On Stage Stands - I am a dealer). The stand goes up 13í but often I donít put it up that high.

Edit:
Oh, and a few sand bags on the bottom of the stand make it pretty stable.

Edit:
Got one to post. The xlr in the middle is the dmx cable to the Donner transmitter. For that I used a piece of aluminum angle punched for Neutik d and mounted an xlr feed through.

I hope this helps.

This works for me, although I've only started using it, so not sure how well this will hold up over the long haul.  I plan on changing out the 50' Ethernet cable for something shorter.

So for the AC Mesh is that the wall mount bracket screwed to a piece of L aluminum that's bolted to the top hat?

Curious what others are using for the latest/greatest ( not breaking the bank ! ) Router OR wireless access point ( WAP ) for basic iPad control of their consoles  ( Soundcraft Vi1 & family ) in my case. 

May even need one for wireless access to the Lake Processors in our Lab Gruppen amps.
Any advise appreciated !
We are using the Engenius ENS500 and ENH500 units with terrific results for console connectivity as well as PLM/Lake connectivity. They are poe (proprietary, injector is included) so only one cable necessary and you can put them on a mic stand (zip ties and LO2 for us). I had some problems with spotty connections using an off the shelf consumer level product, so we spent a little more (~$120 or so) and now have incredible range (not sure what the limit is, haven't ever dropped a connection, but it's more than a football field...). Simple web interface, all of the tools and capability you need.
