That sure looks like the Ubiquiti PowerAP-N, at a little higher price.

I don't know why Ubiquiti is discontinuing production of the PowerAP-N, as it has only been on the market for one year. My unit continues to have excellent range and reliability. I just bought two more PowerAP-N routers (both as spares) from suppliers at Amazon. I would suggest you do the same, before they become impossible to purchase new. As I understand it, the PowerAP-N is still using the same AirRouter operating system with its other routers, so I don't think PowerAP-N users will be "orphaned" for some time.

I just had the top of the line Charter cable router and a new ATT Uverse router installed in my house, as I am upgrading my ISP speed from 6mbps to 15mbps. Neither the Charter nor the ATT router's wireless performance came close to working in my large house, so I have just connected the PowerAP-N with a Cat5 cable to the Charter router.

The PowerAP-N is providing all of my wireless service and has achieved speeds of 25-30mbps down and 3.5mbps up with my new Charter Cable ISP, although typical download speeds (measured by speedtest.net) are 16-22mbps. My operational distances at these speeds are 100-250 feet to several Apple laptops, two network capable LG DVD players and a couple of HP laptop PCs. The wireless signals must go through a number of walls and 2-3 floors in my old Victorian house. The wireless signals to the two HP laptops have to penetrate two exterior frame house walls and travel 100 feet across a tree-filled yard to another outbuilding.

No, I don't work for Ubiquiti, either. I am a mostly retired electronics engineer.

I order the Ubiquiti from another page since amazon wont sent it here.

I was also looking at this one closely

It can be had for $56 and it seem nice. But I read that the firmware upgrade from Ubiquiti will support IPv6.

This would be interesting if this is the same guts in a different form factor. Several reviews on it seem very positive, so maybe Ubiquiti is licensing this under different brand names too???

More likely that other companies are using the same OEM/ODM hardware.

I know of one product manufacturer x that used (past tense) Ubiquiti's radio module- inside the box made by x.
Ubiquity dropped the module product. Vendor x was hosed. This stuff happens. But Ubiquity is a very unusual company - runs well beyond lean. No customer interfaces at either sales or tech. level other than user forum.
For 2.4 or 5.8GHz bridges, I've successfully used Engenius on several projects.

Why is this still a sticky?

This product is not available for purchase as new - there may be some on Craigslist/EBay, but this is an end-of-life product.

just asking...
