generally speaking we need an OpenHardware design
for indoor 2.4/5GHz and outdoor 2.4 and outdoor 5GHz
with "standard" antenna connectors (RP-SMA/N)

never ever rely on the vendors 8-)

If there exists a design a community can
order/produce e.g. 1000 pieces. I dont have enough
insight if this is really possibly (going to an
assembly line, handout the design and order the routers)

so first there is an design needed and so we need
to crowdfound the developement of the open design
and the approval (FCC and EU).
