Re: Alternative to 900 MHz sectors

I would advise getting the good hoz sector or omni despite the cost. The antennas are a very important part of the link. At 900mhz a clean pattern is very important, and you need the good antennas to get that. This reduces noise and increases gain. If you use a bad antenna at the AP you will end up...

Re: Tower and Mast Options

I want to place a few antennas on a hill that is about 1200 feet (365 meters) asl/agl. I'd like to place the antennas (mostly panels) about 7' to 15' above ground. Do you build/weld your own towers, or is there a good manufacturer out there that someone here can recommend? Or maybe I can get away w...

Re: Preamble problem

Hi jordanTX, From memory the 8602+ is a 400mw card (although it does step back the higher speed on B/G) but for 5.8 the best it will do is 100mw!. However in terms of power use - when TX'ing data it will pull 1A (just the card). look at the specs here: 8602 datasheet.pdf I have the AP hooked up to ...

Hi Jordan.... I would say there is your problem - the -80 to -86 signal level.... Once you get in to the -80 territory things can get interesting.... Is it possible for you to set the client end for say 802.11b only and/or set the TX/RX (on the client end) for 1, 2, and /or 5.5mbps (.11b standards)...
