but for bettlemesh two antennas should be enough :-/
so i would prefer the tp-link 3600. its only a bit of another wifi chip 
inside, i hope thats ok. in leipzig we have >10 of that in use and are 
very satisfied with these devices.

and for that difference in money i would really like to suggest some 
Tp-Link 3040!

i will also bring some of that MOBILE routers with me, thats really 
battery inside (just a 3020, but no need for powerwires for many hours)!

Thats very useful for testing and handling WITHOUT power cables. The 
tech inside is just as many other routers our communities using today: 
less memory, flash, cpu and wifi (34mw) than the 3600/4300. maybe some 
usb-sticks for each one could be VERY useful. we could make ext-root for 
the system with that sticks and we could f.i. change usbsticks in wild 
wifi field testings, for changing to another routingprotocol in our 
testing scenarios..
