Get the cavity filter- worth every penny

I have a SR9 AP on a 260ft tower with a 9 dbi Yagi. The AP was registering a -72 Noise floor and my client links were linking but unusable.

Get the Ubiquiti Cavity filter. I put it on the AP and Voila! -95 to -97 Noise floor. The cavity filter works wonders.

2.4 vs 5.8 - PtMp and Backhaul

Why would one use 2.4 vs 5.8 during a wireless network build. Is it because 5.8 has a smaller fresnel zone? I am planning a network using RB 532 boards. I will use 5.8 for PtMp AP and Backhaul. Clients using 900Mhz and some clients using 5.8Mhz on RB112 for CPE. Can I locate the 900Mhz card and 5.8 ...

SR9 - Weird Mac Addresses

Hello, Over the past week, I have seen Mac addresses that are very simular to mine, only out by 1-2 digits. Detected by the AP when doing a scan. Has anyone else seen this kind of action. I am using WDS AP Bridge for a P2P. Yes my WDS is set to Static on the AP. This is the standard example offered ...

3 Yagi's instead of 1 Omni??

I was wondering if anyone has ever used a combination of 3 9db 120o yagi's instead of 1 omni for 360o coverage? Are there any Pro's/Con's? If so, are there connector blocks to tie all 3 together or would you suggest a custom cable.

This is for a 900Mhz set-up using SR9.

Thanks

I have reverted back to 2.39, same issue is happening. I have figured out that when I shutdown the Ap, unplug the power and it reboots I am able to reassociate the link... but how long it lasts is very random. I basically locks, and I have to go through the same procedure. I think I will switch the ...
