Re: hAP AC

When operating in 802.11 wireless mode, RouterOS conforms with the 802.11 standard, which sets a theoretical limit of 2007 clients per radio.

Thank you for your praise. Always good to get positive feedback. Antenna gain is directly proportional to aperture size. Therefore to get a higher gain antenna, you need a bigger antenna.

part of the technical requirements for all outdoor usage in the UK is a 30dBi antenna. Firmware upgrades can't fix that. As a member of UKWISPA we took part in the Ofcom consultation process. The case was made that the 30dBi antenna limit should be removed. We can only wait and see what Ofcom decides.
