Mkrotik HAP AC Lite USB Wifi Client
Hi There, Just wondering if anyone has tried setting up the USB port on a HAP AC Lite for networking.

My particular use case is a radio trailer (converted enclosed trailer made into a radio/camping trailer). On the outside of the trailer I have an outdoor USB Wifi "dongle" installed (something like this one...  ). Since the trailer makes a pretty good faraday cage, not letting signals in too well... I would like to connect that USB WIFI adapter to the HAP AC Lite and use it as a WiFi Client radio.

I realize USB networking may not be installed by default, but wondered if it would be "easy" to impliment.

Another option for hAP wifi

Thinking outside the box, you could do something like Damon K9CQB does with his hAP & ar750 devices.
Here's the link to one of his posts:
With this approach you could mount the hAP near the penetration point and run a short cable outside with an external wifi antenna.

Easier to just install a run-of-the-mill WiFi AP? Perhaps a dual-band MikroTik? One side for your clients, one side to steal someone else's WiFi for WAN/Internet.
