ISP to repeater to home


Recommended Posts

I live in a deep, off-grid situation and currently use satellite internet. Satellite is inferior.

I have access to an ISP's fixed wireless tower 4 miles away, but there is tall terrain between me and them. I need to circumvent the tall terrain.

So I would like to put a repeater on a cliff location (1 mile from me) that has line-of-site to me and the also tower. I have a spare solar array to power the gear. This may be the solution for me. A "Ubiquiti NB-5G22 NanoBridge M5" seems like it has potential for me. I'd like to warmly ask two questions...

  • Can anybody please help me with selecting and purchasing equipment to do this?
  • Or can anbyody point me to somebody who can help?

Any help is appreciated.

  4. (4 miles LOS)
  5. WAP Radio 2 (mounted at cliff, recieves from tower)
  6. Ethernet Cable
  7. LigoWave Box
  8. Ethernet Cable
  9. WAP Radio 3 (mounted on cliff, points to house)
