[isf-wifidog] Wanted: Type-N/MIMO router capable of WiFiDog installation

This is a good use for a plain router vs. AP+router.

We do this in some of our parks, with WifiDog running on a Soekris  
router with 3 ethernet interfaces. One goes to the WAN, one goes to a  
private wired network, and the third goes to a network of APs. Its  
this last ethernet interface that has WifiDog attached.

You should be able to accomplish this with a lower cost router (sans  
Wi-Fi), and (in your case, put the POS machines on one wired lan port  
without WifiDog, and the N/MIMO router on another lan port with Wifidog.

This way, the cafe can use the N-based AP as the wireless network,  
but still have WifiDog running.
