hi! I bought myself a benq Awl 500 AP which is connected to biquad antenna
with lmr cabel. I have some difficulties, i would need this aP to work in
client mode so i could put it on my house-roof. Is there a way to flash this
ap, i tried to find some utilities....

The Benq does not appear to have a client mode, nor, it seems, does it
do WPA security. Though it does support Radius... If you can return
it, do so. There are others that do more and are cheap enough.

The ASUS routers have USB ports and support DD-WRT firmware which
adds many many functions, including AP, Client Bridge, Bridge
Repeater,WDS etc. Also Tomato firmware works on it and is said to be
very simple and reliable as a router, client or AP.

Return the Benq or keep it as an AP someplace that doesn't need
effective security.
