Well you need to start with a budget to see if it's feasable...

If you allow $100 per radio alone not including setup that's $25000

There are many options here but it needs to be reliable or it'll become
a maintenance nightmare and mobile is a very harsh environment.

Not really suitable, no external antenna required.

> What kind of 'mobile' do you have in mind?

A large fleet of vehicles

> WiMax if it ever happens?

Also not suitable.

To add.....

These vehicles need Wifi access internally while on the road into a 3G 
router also on the vehcile.
However when parked,  the 3G router and Wifi will be turned off then the

devices will associate with
garage wifi for continued work.

I know a simple solution is to have the 3G router and AP on when garaged

but there are reasons why
this cant happen.

The $$$ is the biggest factor.  I would like to present this idea to my 
managers but in mild discussions
the $$$ was all the big stopper! 

Thanks for your input.
