  1. Ya, It seems there will be a lot of stuff to figure out in testing. I figured the larger antenna would also be able to pick the data back up, but I am hearing from other people, even if I do get that streaming well, I will be limited to maybe 2 streams at a time, not due to bandwidth, but timing issues. So maybe I will need multiple APs. It seems like a lot of the documentation on WiFi can be misleading, or buried, as to what it is capable of. I did see you could attach antennae to the PI zeros, so that may be something that I will need to do to later also. Fun Fun :-).
  2. Its not connecting to the internet, or going to be in my home. There is NO INTERNETS! Lol
  3. So in my case where I want to assign the Pis IP addresses, I could not do that from the Ubiquiti UAP, but would need to do that from whatever connects to the Ubiquiti like... Laptop (as DCHP server?) -> Ubiquiti -> 20 Pis , or would I want to put a router in between like Laptop -> Router -> Ubiquiti -> 20 Pis. Right now the plan is not to have them streaming to the internet, it will just be a LAN, where they stream to a Laptop, but the ability to connect to the internet in the future could be good. Like Internet -> Router -> Ubiquiti -> 20 Pis. -> Laptop Also, thanks for the replies, these are the things I am confused about.
  4. That is good to know. So if I bought this one... Ubiquiti UAP-AC-M-US Unifi Mesh Access Point , it looks like it has the strength I would need. Would I be able to use this one as a router connected to a laptop and setup a LAN with the Pis, with Ubiquiti software that would let me setup port forwarding on the Ubiquiti? It seems like an obvious yes, but I just want to be sure when it says Mesh and AP it is not just like a repeater that would not allow me to do what I'd like, or have a really stripped down interface for configuration.
  5. Good Afternoon, I am not sure this is the right forum for the question, but I imagine there could be interesting answers too. I would like to buy a router, and do not know exactly what I need. I would like to stream 1080p video @ 30 fps, over 802.11n, 75 meters from 20 separate locations simultaneously to a base station. The cameras will be used in sports and moving. The 75 yards is clear, with no obstructions from walls/buildings. My approach was going to be use Raspberry Pi Zero Ws to keep the cameras small but to allow them to also record to SD cards. Then, get a long range router they could all connect to, and then use some streaming application and maybe port forwarding on the router to make the streams available there. I could then connect a laptop to the router with ethernet. I estimated the router would need to handle 70-100 Mbps at the 75 yards, and have some weather resistance. I saw some routers that looked like they could do this, but the reviews varied allot, and I have never looked for one like this before. These are some I looked at... I would be interested if these will work, if one is best, or if you would use something completely differant. https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-BULLET-M2-HP-Outdoor-802-11-M2HP/dp/B002SYS22E/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 https://www.amazon.com/OM2P-HS-802-11gn-300mbps-Access-802-3af/dp/B00K5VLJ36/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1535081567&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=outdoor+access+point+router&refinements=p_72%3A1248879011&psc=1&smid=A1HP7F9AXH8VS3 https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-UAP-AC-M-US-Unifi-Access-Point/dp/B01N9FIELY/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1535081567&sr=1-4&keywords=outdoor+access+point+router&refinements=p_72%3A1248879011 Thanks for any and all suggestions.
