I was lookign at one of our competitors installs the other day, wondering where they got thier enclosures, because they were very low profile, and looked darn good on the wall, and I finaly found one in a closet still in the package, its this:

http://www.acehardwaresuperstore.com/builders-edge-jumbo-mounting-block-p-46357.html?ref=42

15 bucks at ace, so probably even less at home depot.

its just tall enough 1.6" deep to fit a AP inside, I tried the asus they fit fine, haven't tried a linksys ..they might not fit, but you could just put the circuit board in there ...

Its white and it sticks off the wall 1.6" and its cheep.

Just run a line of caulk around the edge stick the wap inside and screw it to the wall. If you have to get inside just pull it off and put a new line of caulk when you screw it back to the wall.

Oh and then the little ring that snaps around the edge to hide the screws, you put on backwards =p You will see what I mean if you try one.

If your mounting to a pole ... it wont work .. only for mounting flush to a wall.
