We use WRAP boards and a PC with two nics as the main firewall. We use the
indoor enclosures from http://www.mini-box.com, both the 2e and 3e depending
on our needs.
We then use other APs for the outside and tie it all into a switch. We use
multiple brands of APs I have not tried a wrap as the AP and monowall all
in one yet. I have one to play with at home but no way to mount the antenna
in the indoor enclosure, been planning to just make a small mount for it and
screw it to the top but have not got around to it. We have one to a cisco
1700 router and a t1, 2 to other wireless point to multipoint client devices
and one to a wireless backhaul and all work great.

portal in a Hotspot solution?
What kind of hardware is everyone using?
I am leaning towards the WRAP board because of its price and POE inclusion,
but the Soekris stuff looks good too.
Anyone using anything besides these two?
And what is available for enclosures for the WRAP boards other than the
outdoor stuff I see form MiniBox?
