Poor range in Alfa Awus036NHA with APA M04


Recommended Posts

hi guys,I had bought Alfa Awus036nha with APA M04 [http://hackerwarehouse.com/product/7dbi-directional-panel-antenna/] directional antenna one year ago and I felt that the range isn't far :( My tplink 8200nd is almost cover longer range than my AWUS036nha.

I was thinking to setup this device with TP-link 2424 http://www.tplink.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-ANT2424B ,anyone can teach me how to setup to get the best range out of the device? Anyway,do you guys know is it legal to use at Malaysia? Thanks

Any upgrade will be recommended :)

Try increasing the tx power.

iwconfig wlan1 txpower 25dBm

Or so couldnt hurt to check and see what its currently set at first and then crawl it up till you see a result but I thing it default boots at 20dBm. Be VERY careful though. Go up one dBm at a time and then wait. If it starts to get really hot or smell funny then turn it back down and leave it off till it cools down.

good luck.

ps: wlan1 is where mine is. yours could be different.
