We use the senao 2611 AP3s, But, we are having problems with some MACos computers and some Dells. It looks like a chip set issue.

Silly question (perhaps), but why are people NOT using an MT powered solution?

Is it just down to cost?

When you are using Mikrotik OS to do DHCP or Hotspot for the client, I think it's better to use one the high power interface, such as Prism 300 mWatt PCMCIA, or SR2 miniPCI card. The price for those cards are cheaper than a good 2,4 Access Point hardware.

That question, especially regarding the antenna, can not be answered without seeing the building and doing a site survey and some testing. So you decide...
