I have used the ubiquity. They do mac filtering. Their firmware is good. What exactly is it that you are trying to do? I don't understand what open wrt can do on the ubiquity radios that their firmware can't. I have a ubiquity nanostation and I love it. The reason they are not well distributed in Canada yet is.. (This is what I was told anyhow) While they have been approved by the FCC for operation in the states, the units have not yet been approved for use in Canada by the CRTC.

 I have used several of the other ubiquity products, powerstation, etc, as well as their 5 Ghz stuff. I have used them outside from -40 ~ +40 degrees in the rain sleet, and snow.
