Didn't see a current / quick answer for this anywhere.

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.

Seems the market is flooded with options these days.

Any advise appreciated !

I have been using this TP Link outdoor 5G AP for the past couple years with great success. If I'm mixing from DL32/Core on iPad, which we do quite often at festivals, I use this on stage mounted in the backline to a tall lighting stand. I've mixed 250 feet out at FOH with no issues.  I chose the lighting stand as it's far smaller, lighter than using up a mic stand and goes taller.  If I'm mixing self provided larger gigs from my M32 at FOH, then I attach to our FOH router facing band so they can reliably adjust ears from their phones.  I have a POE switch and router mounted on a 1U shelf in our stage rack and POE injector mounted in the doghouse at FOH so ready when needed at either position.

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?

Yes.

I also defeated the locking latch to make it easy to remove for safer transit.

I reread the title to the thread.  Curious as to why people think in matters what devices they are connecting to.  IP is IP.

What are the benefits of flashing to DD-WRT?

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 posted my pic.
I used a chunk of angle aluminum to get the post mount screwed on and threaded a 1/4-20 hole. I then screwed a bolt down through the hole, set it on the top hat and use a wingnut to hold it. No tools needed.

That was in response to Russ' gaff tape suggestion. I appreciate the photo.

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.
What model was this WAP? I like it

By the looks of it I'd say it's a Ubiquiti UAP-AC-M.

Indeed, now out of production so get one while you still can.

I'm hoping Netgear will make an AP similar to the old UBNT Bullet form factor to go with their AV M4250 switches. The lineup of panel AP's are all wrong for our purposes.

They're still making them...

UAP AC mesh and Edgerouter X SFP is my wireless setup.
