Model: Deco M5  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Are the Deco M5 units suitable for exterior installation?  I need to traverse an outdoor space over a fairly long distance.  At least one unit would need to be in an outdoors setting.  

If the Deco M5 is not suitable, is there a better product for this job?

Hi, Deco M5 only supports Ethernet-WAN connection, which means you have to get an Ethernet output from the internet source in an outdoor space.

Moreover, M5 is intended for home use and does not have a water-proof design.

So M5 might not be a suitable product for outdoor settings. 

 

There are some business products which might be more appropriate.

You could refer to this link and add more details about your scenario to get the recommended models:
