The 3054's suck. If you can keep them airconditioned, they might stay up
for you for a while, but they SEEM to bee overly sensitive to heat.
I have a 3054 that I use for my kid's bedroom PC, one for my PC
workbench, and a few other locations where I could probably get by with
a USB adapter, but since I bought 24 of these POS's, I use them wherever
I have a NON mission-critical application, or stuff like that.
I once plugged in 10 of them around the house. and associated them all
to a Linksys router, and pinged all of them for a week without a failure.
In a test environment I don't think I have ever had one fail, but in the
field, they seem to spontanieously crap out.
A cheap WDS alternative is a EZ-Y net bridges. I have one on a roof with
an omni, about two miles from a MTik AP and associated in WDS mode, and
it seems to work well to "fill in the blanks" for nearby customers.

Speaking of Senao ... I just ran across some really nasty reviews of
the nl-3054 CB3+. My client wants to share a cable connection at one
house with two others with LOS and within 100ft. Sounds easy enough,
but those reviews ("worst product ever") have me looking again
elsewhere. But nothing else seems to offer WPA. The 802.11g is nice,
but could pass.
Anyone have anything decent to say about these?
