Has anyone found a reliable wireless bridge? Alternatively, how do you handle devices which do not support wireless but which there is no easy way to get a cable to in a retrofit scenario?

Every wireless bridge I have tested just hasn't been reliable enough to deploy to a customer. Most of them just become disconnected when the fail but one of the bridges I was testing came back before the access points after a power outage and decided that since there weren't any other access points in range it should make itself an access point and started handing out IP addresses to clients and took the entire network out. Unfortunately, that was the only device that was proving to be reliable.

Eero for the win
I'm Not an engineer, but I play one on TV.
My handle is Tweety but I have nothing to do with the organization of similar name. I just had a really big head as a child so folks called me tweety bird.

I signed up with Eero a couple of days ago but I haven't had one in my hands yet.

I will have to grab one this week.

Thanks for the advice.

I've had good luck with the Engenius product. I have a commercial greenhouse project that had about 6+ acres covered with wi-fi into the metal framed greenhouses (faraday cages) using only three devices. Dual Band using the 2.4GHz within the houses and the 5GHz as backhaul to the main building from each house. Been up for about three years without issue. Just did a similar project from a main residential house bridged to the Bocce Ball court/Bar.

Ive deployed all kinds of Ubiquity Wireless bridges. From 30ft in A home, to across the street, to across an Estate 1/4mile+

I installed the eero Pro setup in my home a few days ago and it's very stable. Replaced a Netgear Orbi what was having issues since the latest firmware release. The wifi would stay connected but we'd get internet not available issues daily. Very frustrating.

The eero deal was nice. No waiting on shipping, just pick up a discounted unit from a distributor.

Ubiquity router setup in bridge mode.
Couple of ports on the back, so no need for seperate network switch on basic living room setups where I have Wattbox, BD, AVR & TV.

Ubiquity and EnGenius have worked well for me.

Have done a few m900 deployments with great success. Do they offer, and have you worked with any multi-point / mesh setups? Looking at deploying a camera system for multiple storage facilities less than a mile from head end and 25-30 degrees of separation.

haven't had any need to do a mesh setup for wifi at all yet. I dont quite understand the appeal for a home.

the ubiquity point to point stuff is great though. I havent had the need to go a mile yet.. but I'd have no problem quoting an AirFiber setup if the need arose.
