Need a tiny router? Here is the new Mikrotik mAP-2N two port router
with wireless. Can be powered via USB (or other ways)
I posted the following in the Yahoo linux group and a member
in the UK followed-up as you can see after each "|". Is the
mAP available yet?

| It does indeed... looks very similar to most other micro APs but it
| does PoE injection which is neat, and has multiple power options: wall
| wart, active and passive PoE, etc).
| Sadly, it looks for now to be vaporware.

| I did a cursory search on every website they list as a North America
| distributor or reseller, and no one lists them. Shame, I'd like to
| see what the pricing is on that and some more details.
| I bought one of these:
| from a shop in the Guang Hua electronics market in Taipei a few years
| ago and have used it around the world whenever I travel. it's not a
| bad micro 802.11n AP that is switchable from being a straight AP to
| router to even a bridge and can also provide both wifi and 100Mbit
| LAN. I think I paid all of $12 for it 3 or 4 years ago now.
| More recently I replaced it with one of these:
| Which has similar specs, but has a fold out AC plug so it's one thing
| less to carry in my kit (no wall wart).
