Why not an actual M5 from Amazon for about $62 USD?
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004EHSV4W

The weight stated is 1.1 lbs, so shipping should be less than $10 (Amazon's shipping fee - http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=596188 - for electronics is $4.50/pound to Singapore).

Above link indicated there's a "Worldwide" version.  What's the difference & can a
non-worldwide (that's sold in Amazon) work in my country?

Do I need I pair of M5 or 2 pairs to meet the needs stated above?



Less than US$10 for shippg is a good deal.
Btw, how did u know the country I live in?
Darr247Commented:
Usually a "worldwide version" can be adapted to different frequency enforcement agency requirements by either flashing different firmware or selecting the location in the setup menus. e.g.  here in the USA the enforcement agency's the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), where they limit the 2.4GHz WiFi channels to 1-11 (most of Europe allows 1-13; Japan adds channel 14 in the 802.11b band), and the 5GHz band requires dynamic frequency selection (DFS) for the U-NII 2 band channels (typically 52 through 140) to prevent interference with air traffic control radar (i.e. you are not allowed to manually select 1 station in that section of the 5GHz band here in FCC land).  

If you look at the firmware update release notes for the M5 models, you'll see blurbs like
Version 5.5.8-Service Release (January 23, 2014)
----------------------------------------------
Regulatory updates:
- New: Regulatory changes for Greece
- New: Regulatory changes for Thailand
- New: Add Croatia under EU regulatory rules
- New: Split Serbia and Montenegro
- New: Remove Compliance Test mode
- New: Lock selected country for all EU countries/Switzerland. Reset to factory defaults is required to order to change country
- New: Available frequency list is updated for UK when operating in 30MHz channel width


So I would say *all* of the M5 models are 'worldwide' versions.

If you are using them as long distance bridges (e.g. 1 to 10 Km), I would recommend using them in pairs, but for general WiFi use as a repeater or extender for 100m or less it should interface with about any 5GHz WiFi station just fine.

For your location, I looked in your profile... Many people leave that info blank, making localized answers nearly impossible.

Gee, excellent response.

A little clarification which I may have missed in your reply:
> Do I need I pair of M5 or 2 pairs to meet the needs stated above?

ie to be able to connect to my office LAN while I'm at home & to be able
to connect to my home broadband while I'm at office

The link you posted previously indicated it ships to Singapore but when I just revisits it,
that merchant doesn't ship to Singapore anymore.  What happened & how do I scout
for a merchant that ships here?
sunhuxAuthor Commented:
Just chosen another merchant "Olympian LED" : shipping cost is approx US$18 for the lowest cost

Found another variant of M5 above : does the 'high-power' indicates the signals can go thru the
walls & other interferences better?  & what's it's coverage distance compared to the previous
M5 that we talked about earlier?
Darr247Commented:
You can see the differences between the LocoM5 and NSM5 on Ubiquiti's site.
e.g. https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/nanostationm/


> ideally the device allow access both ways ie the LAN in the office accessible
from home while home's broadband LAN port accessible from office

I'm not fully understanding those criteria.  :|
sunhuxAuthor Commented:
The criteria is :
 to be able to connect to my office LAN while I'm at home AND to be able
to connect to my home broadband while I'm at office without having to
swap the remote & local ends of the M5 (ie leave them there permanently)

So do I need I pair of M5 or 2 pairs to meet the needs stated above?
