I am looking for Wi-Fi AP that:
1. Is stable (does not require frequent reboot or power OFF/ON)
2. Supports 802.11 b/g/n
3. Supports up to WPA2-Enterprise (RADIUS auth) - a *must*
4. Has external Antenna
Desirable - Accepts DD-WRT / OpenWRT images.
Many list members may be using these Wi-Fi features in their own
office / home and I would appreciate if you could share you
Please mention brand/model.
PS - There are lot of brands claiming features and performance.
Unfortunately, they can be verified only after one has purchased such
an unit. In the past, I have used Linksys and Buffalo. Linksys has
been OK but with internal antenna, range is suspect (at least in my
experience). The Buffalo APs, on paper have great feature and few
models do accept DD-WRT firmware. However, I have had heating issues
- over a period of time the WLAN would disappear. The only way I
could solve it was to power them OFF, let it cool and then power them
ON. Buffalo was great in the RMA dept. but the brand new replacements
had the same problem.

Thanks to push from Arun and Dinesh, the mailing list is back online.
ILUG-BOM was left without a mailing list server for a year, but is now
nested within FSF-I infrastructure.
Firstly, sorry for cross-posting but I do not know which list is
currently being used by everyone.
It's time for another Ubuntu Global Jam! This time, it is for the
Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (13.04) cycle.
Since this is too early for an official announcement, I will update
this thread when the Ubuntu Loco website opens up for UGJ
Tentative Dates: 15 March 2012, 16 March 2012 and 17 March 2012
Venue: Directiplex, Andheri (W), Mumbai
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on all the days
There is nothing planned on these days as of yet. I am looking for
suggestions. Come and fix bugs, test the new OS installation process,
fix documentation etc. Specifically, I am hoping that we can fix
Ubuntu bugs and forward the patches upstream. So, if any Debian
Developers (or other upstream developers) are free at this time,
please attend the event so we can get help with the same.
Looking forward to a great Jam!

Yay! This is good news indeed. However, what happens to the Google
Group that Binand started?
