0phoi5 Posted July 14, 2016 Share Posted July 14, 2016 (edited) 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. Edited July 14, 2016 by haze1434 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
