Wireless Access Point: Quick, Easy, Inexpensive, Antenna Connector II

I want to have a ready reference for access points.
They don't have to be too fancy.
They can't be very expensive (say $150 or less)
They have to have a detachable antenna so I can connect coax.
They have to support WDS or some inter-access point wireless link.
Dual band not required.

Suggestions so far:

DWL-3200AP which is the original and is discontinued.
Cisco / Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato .. but I'd like to avoid pre-configuring.
D-Link DAP-2590, etc.
HP M200 J9467A

My question is, are there any other models you might suggest?

I can deal with antenna selection as long as there's a coax connector.

I like these and these are cheap.
Here are some...

Engenius ENH200EXT

TP-Link TL-WA5210G

That one is a little over the range you suggested, but you could watch for it to be on sale.

About any sub-$100 router/AP with the features you want can be converted to outdoors with an enclosure like http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=29405
