recommendation for a single wireless access point, maybe made by Ubiquiti

I see the benefits of the Unifi access points from ubiquiti and their non-web interface for management... when there's a few devices at the location.

But I have a need to replace an old dlink router acting as an access point (there's a separate device acting as the network router / firewall, so I only need the access point).

I've used the nanostations from ubiquiti also.  They have the web interface, but from what I know, they are directional (for the point to point situations I set up with them).

Is there a ubiquti device that's unidirectional and has its own web interface?  I'd like high power and just needs to be 802.11g

thanks!

I have used Ruckus in a number small offices to large schools.  They are extremely powerful and will go through just about any wall or structure.  You can run them as a standalone AP or through a controller.

Compared to other WAPs, I have seen where we were able to reduce the number of required APs by 1/2 and get more coverage and concurrent connections.

Here is their website:  http://www.ruckuswireless.com/

I forgot to mention - I'm looking for just 1 in this location and accost of $100 or so?  Could just do the ubiquiti unifi and run the software on a machine, but don't want to bother with the overhead of the software on the LAN.  Not looking for VLANs, etc.

I envision ruckus is expensive (relatively?)

Go with the Engenius line of products, very affordable and great power/features.  The only other option with Ubiquiti is the Picostation line that does have the web interface and unidirectional.
