Rackmount Wireless Router

Looking for a Rackmount Wireless Router. Something small not to fancy but still solid. For my home server use but it must have gigabit ethernet.

What if any Rackmount Wireless Routers have you used?

Beta, not many out there based on google search. I assume that you have done that?

Many times the wireless antennas can be interferred with by the metal in the rack mount
and proximity to other rack mounted components.

Sometime it is cheaper to just have a wireless access point set apart from your Rack.

I did to a google search and did not see anything that I liked.

Also, I was trying to get rid of having a wireless access point out side my rack. Thanks.

The rack really does interfere with signal. I would recommend at the most putting the access point on top of the rack.

Yea, that is where my wireless router is now. I just want something that looks more prof. and cleaner looking. I guess I will have to get a tray and mod the tray to mount a wireless router. Time to get the drill and hammer out.

not suitable to mount on the outside and screw it like that, or do what you said and mount wifi aerials on the outside so you dont loose signal
