Changing Antennae


Recommended Posts

So, I have a 9DBi onmi that I can fit to either of the radio's. The question is, which one will give better results?

If I boost the Atheros (AP) then I'll get people further away able to connect to it, what are the advantages of connecting it to the RTL radio?

PineAP uses different interface for different modules.

wlan0 Karma and Harvester. Advantage: better signal for connecting clients, greater ability to harvest ESSIDs.

wlan1 Dogma and Beacon Reply. Advantage: better signal for targeted or response beacons. Increased reconnaissance range.

wlan2 (optional) Client Mode. Advantage: greater signal to nearby AP.

Depending on what you're going for it could be any of the three. For me the use cases for enhancing wlan0 is gathering more clients.
