    I have a back yard pool area that I want to cover with WiFi (less than a quarter acre).

    Apple has no "outdoor" Airport Expresses, and no external antenna plug.

    Where can I find an "outdoor" WAP that works with AirPlay?

    Or an indoor WAP that works with AirPlay, and has an external antenna plug (then I'll just run the antenna outside)?

    Thanks in advance. Have been searching the web for quite some time.

    I recall someone on a home theater board recommending the Hawking HOWABN1 Hi-Gain Outdoor Wireless-N Multifunction Access Point; YMMV.

    AirPlay works with any router, except the feature that allows an Express to connect directly to speakers, so if you're looking for that you might have to find something else. Or put an Express in waterproof box.

    I don't need to connect to speakers outdoors with this WAP... I just need the WAP to pass the signal through to the ethernet network.

    Any wireless router can do that.
