Is the Ubiquiti Nano good for Open WiFi, Long Distance?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Is this product any good for long-distance use of an open WiFi hotspot?

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.

How far would one be able to connect to an Open WiFi if they could only set up hardware on their end?

It's a local pub, I can't set up equipment there unfortunately. I know the landlord and they are happy for me to connect, but I can't go setting any equipment up there.

Is a Yagi the best bet?

It really depends on what the hardware is at McD's or whatever has the open wifi. I used to live about a mile from one, could see it, but couldn't make a connection, even with a high gain [cough]illegal[/cough] powered antenna. Might be able to work a couple houses down, might only work from across the street.
