[Pauldotcom] Durable AP Needed

I'm hoping someone can recommend a durable AP for use in demos and
travel. I typically carry a few Linksys WRT's, or newer E4200's, but
between my leaving home or a hotel and getting home, they are frequently
broken (along with a suspicious "Hey, we invaded your privacy in the
name of security theater TSA flyer"). Not that I'm jaded, or anything.
I need the AP to be 802.11 b/g/n (5 GHz a/n is optional) with at least
four switch ports and support for NAT to an uplink network. I also need
it to support open security, WEP, WPA2-PSK and WPA2 Enterprise IEEE
802.1X (which my Linksys AP's do no problem). External antennas are not
desirable just for reliability (very little range is needed).
The smaller the better, and I would love a metal case like some of the
older Netgear units, but realize that metal and WiFi are problematic.
