Wi-Fi for 2,600 users using a wAP-60Gx3-AP to eight wAP-60G Stations over an ~130º field of view

I provide internet access for several events here in Hawaii - - think "Temporary WISP". We have been making extensive use of these reasonably priced MikroTik wAP-60G units at these events because they allow us to provide for a quick, easy, weatherproof and non-interfering 60GHz wireless bridge netwo...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

And then a HEAVIER remnant of Rain, left over from Hurricane LANE, came by and took down the link. Green line is the RF path of this 1473m link. Conclusion is that Light to Moderate rain will have minimal to no effect on a link of this distance (1,473m) at 58320MHz. However, somewhere between Modera...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

THE RAIN, THE RAIN!!! Moderate rainfall covers the entire length of the link and the link is still up! Green line is the RF Path of the link. Traffic Generator is running and showing 0 drops, 0 errors. Other Results are in the screen capture. https://scontent.fhnl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/40239110_...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

When I follow the tx-sector-info to adjust the antenna alignment to "center" the RSSI is worse than aligning by RSSI... Why is that? Shouldn't the RSSI get better when I get to "center:"? Alignment by tx-sector-info shows that I am "center": connected: yes frequency: 58320 remote-address: 30:07:4D:4...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

In one day LANE was downgraded from a Category 5 to a Strong Tropical Storm. It is now moving at 2-3 mph towards the West and passing Honolulu 115 miles to our south. It's been windy all night with light to moderate rains (Still no Heavy Rains). I ran a Traffic Generator between the links all night....

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

Hurricane LANE Update: No Heavy Rain bands as yet. We have been experiencing increased winds and light rain bands due to the storm. Since updating to RouterOS 6.43.rc56 the units have been rock solid, even through the light rain bands we have been experiencing. https://scontent.fhnl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

When on 6.43.rc51 I found it strange that the RSSI gets worse when you follow the TX Sector alignment cues. You would think that the RSSI would get better. When I aligned by RSSI I can get a peak RSSI of -57dB, peak signal of 100, an MCS of 8 and a PHY rate of 2.3Gbps, however, the alignment guide s...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

@JAINGE - How many hours of flight time did you spend getting to Berlin?
10 hours from HNL to JFK, about 5-6 hours to Heathrow and another 1.5 hours to Berlin.

Re: Wireless Backhaul for AP Options

I realize that this post is about a year old and you may have solved your situation.

However, I recently used a wAP-60G in AP Bridge mode to provide connectivity through 4 wAP-60G units in Station bridge mode to 4 wAP AC units.

Worked out very well.

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

@WirelessRudy If I take a look at the pictures I've seen so far this LHG-dish having a slightly more dense honey-grate structure then the 5 and 2,4Ghz sisters? I would expect so since the wavelength of 60Ghz is so small it might miss the raster of the 2,4 and 5Ghz ones. Unfortunately, I have never w...

Re: LHG 60 project in Hawaii

@jainge; Thanks for that info. Interesting tourist info too! Anyway, it gives me the 'feeling' you actually had some early test versions / versions for test purposes only. How come? All the way in Hawaii? Did the Mikrotik guys happen to be there on holiday and had 2 of these units in their suitcase...
