I wanted to connect to my neighbors AP 700 Meters away through lots of trees (real trees, big and tall), yes I have permission!
Not being a Network/IT person, but no dummy either, my computers run Linux. It took a while and many hard resets to get it working. the main issue was getting back in after setting the network in bridge mode and DCHP for LAN. I went to the Ubiquity site downloaded and read/scanned the training manuals for both wireless and networking. I found that through the mac address- last two hex address spots xy:zy (convert to decimal) become the last two on access address 169.254.xxx.zzz. Now connected via ethernet set as DCHP for IPV4 ,voila I am at login page. Setting the rest of it pretty straight forward including firmware update, unit name, password change, everything else is default. If you are in wireless settings and the select for choosing the AP one desires does not have a button, just do it manually including any security. Really it is straight fwd, just time consuming and a learning curve. Oh-- To get the MAC address use browser Chromium or Chrome and the Ubiquity Discover add-on...works great
I have the LocoM2 connected to my own antique AP for wireless coverage so far works wonderful and time will tell how well.
I also purchased a used NSM2 with the 11db antenna as signal strength here is low. Set-up is same and works quite well. These units should work great for people who need access to an AP farther away than the little wireless card in a Laptop!
$10 POE injector: Ubiquiti Networks POE-24-12W POE External Injector

$45 Nanostation:Ubiquiti NanoStation loco M2 - Wireless Access Point - AirMax (LOCOM2US)
Ubiquiti products are great because they are extremely reliable (no need to reset AP periodically), extremely powerful (some of the most powerful radios you can buy, with output power up to the max allowable by law of 1000mw (1 watt), at least in the USA, and they are highly programmable. However, they traditionally have been designed for the networking professional, and are missing a few features most consumer specific brands often have (D-Link, Linksys, Buffalo, Netgear, etc.), such as the ability to create multiple SSIDs (the name advertised by the access point), and a push-button setup procedure... to name two. But if you have the know-how to manually set an IP address on your computer you are a candidate for these fine products.
Having said that, the trick is to pick the correct Ubiquiti model for your needs. For example the Nanostation LOCO M2 is great, but what is not revealed in the Amazon specifications is the coverage area. The built in antenna is NOT an omni (360 degree coverage). Rather, it is a 60 degree antenna (vertically and horizontally. That is coverage roughly equivalent to a fat slice of mom's apple pie. If you need to cover such an area this unit will shoot a signal hundreds of feet. And the Nanostation is weather resistant, so it can be mounted outside for a better reach. NOTE: Amazon is terrible about allowing external links in a review but if you go to ubnt com website you can see a pictogram of the coverage area.
If you need a different coverage area (either wider or narrower), consider the Picostation M2-HP (see my general review of the Picostation line here:Ubiquiti Networks PICO2 2.4GHz 802.11bg). This model has the same power, but has a detachable omni antenna. You can use the omni or attach whatever antenna suits your needs. The downside to the Picostation is that is only has one antenna (MIMO 1x1), so speed maxes out at 150mb/s. The Nanostation maxes at 300 mb/s thanx to two internal antennas (MIMO 2x2). If you need the higher speed AND the external antennas, you need to look at another brand.
Configuration tip: Unless you are connecting to a large numbers of other Ubiquiti devices with an "M" in the model number, turn off "airMAX" in the configuration, and also set the Channel Width in the wireless settings to "20MHz". This will give you the best compatibility, especially if using the Nanostation (or Picostation) as an AP for laptops and handheld devices to connect to.
UPDATE 11-2015: Regarding the comment about looking elsewhere if greater than 300mb/s throughput is required PLUS external antennas... Ubiquiti now markets the "ac" series such as the Rocket ac, which passes up to 500+ mb/s (Ubiquiti Rocket AC Wireless Access Point (R5AC-LITE)).
Ubiquiti also offers some very serious sector antennas that fit the Rocket, which allow not only extremely long distance links between two Rockets (for back haul), but also applications such as using a single Rocket as a Wireless Access Point to get a good WiFi signal to consumer devices that may be hundreds of feet away. The Ubiquiti antennas are really good "listeners", so the signal from the relatively low powered consumer devices transmitted over what would normally be a deal breaking distance can be picked up by the rocket.
