Select between b/g and clients drop

I have sanyo radio's and there is an optionto run 802.11b/g or 802.11b only or 802.11g only.

At the moment I have selected 802.11b and whenever I select 802.11b/g all the b clients drop. Is this normal or I am I not understanding the way b/g is suppost to work?

Antani, Power and freqency

Is it correct to say that a higher db omni will have a longer range than a lower db omni. However the higher the db the flater the cone will be. And thus using a lower db omni will be shorter range but have better non-line of sight chacteristics? Is it correct to say that a sr5 card using 802.11a at...

5ghz and backbone

My plan is to create a backbone on 5ghz and then 2.4ghz to the clients. Not all of the tower locations can see the primary 5ghz access point but they can see the other 5ghz relays. Is there away to set them up without having to install separate 5ghz ap links at each relay to the new site? Would this...

802.11A link Question

Is 802.11a so sensitive that it will not travel through a single pain of glass? I have a routerboard on our roof with 802.11a card for backbone, 802.11b card for hotspot/ppoe. On the mountain I have the same. I want to add another repeater the same as above, and in attempting to set the unit up I ha...

I looked into this early when we were going to setup our wireless hot spot service and the research that I did told me it's best not to do anything on AM towers. Between the special equipment you have to use, interferance issues.. and the fact the tower has to be shut down in order to make changes t...

When the cards are set for 802.11b they work great and have good range both indoor and on external antani. However, one of these ca...

Two issues with rb500

Issue 1: I have two wireless cards installed. After startup it rarely finds both cards, most of the time finds one card (but not nessarly the same card), and once in a while finds neither card. These are the athlos a/b/g cards that came with the unit. AR5211's Issue 2: Once I get the unit to recogni...
