Hi all, I'm using an Alfa AWUS036h with a 7dbi directional. I would have thought, through general reading-up, I would have gotten around 100-200 meters worth of distance with these. However, it's only picking up access points up to around 70m away, and I tried connecting to my WiFi from only 42m away and it fails to connect, even though it sees the access point. The line-of-sight is only broken by one exterior wall. TX power is currently out-of-the-box at 24 dBm. Most of the access points have worse-than-I-would-have-hoped-for signal strength, with most being worse than -60 PWR, even for access points that are less than 30m away! Any thoughts on how to improve this / why this happening? Thanks.
Hey all, Is this product any good for long-distance use of an open WiFi hotspot? https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/nanobeamm/ There are around 10 houses between me and the Open Wifi hotspot, however this thing states it can do 15km and the hotspot is only around 2-3km away. I could probably raise it high enough to see over the top of a few of the houses. Ta.
Hi, I'm considering buying a Mark V, however I wanted to get some idea of the setups people are using for distance. I assume the standard setup won't do more than 50 meters or so (obviously depending on open spaces, dense materials in the way, etc.) What kinds of aerials are you using, and what kinds of distances have you acheived? Thanks.
Hey guys. I ordered my Pineapple Mark V this week and I'm so excited to see what it can handle. But I'm wondering if I can use it from a remote location. For example, I leave it at home and access it from another home miles away. Is this not possible?
