Re: Netmetal AC2 Disappointments [SOLVED]

Long range on Mikrotik marketing is usually referring to multiple km with high gain antennas and not covering a back yard. The wAP AC has 3 chains on 5ghz compared to 2 chains of the netmetal. And the wAP is the same enclosure as the wireless wire (wAPG-60adkit), so it will be just fine outdoors. F...

Re: Netmetal AC2 Disappointments [SOLVED]

PS. The netmetal is what I would get for outdoor and probably with an antenna that has a 180 sector such that I dont get leakage into the house area.

The netmetal AC2 is a great unit, do not be embarrassed. Its max flex and allows you to server small area with omni antennas OR longer range with diff antennas. It comes with dual chains. (AC1200) It probably has a better capacity to be outdoor then other products. It can handle IPSEC has lots of g...

Re: Netmetal AC2 Disappointments [SOLVED]

setting the antenna gain will lower tx power to fit inside your regulatory domain - rather leave it, its just going to decrease range. Click HT, make sure both tx/rx chains 0 & 1 are ticked.
