Re: sextant poor antenna 0 for 2

By the way, tread was about Sextant. We talk SXT now.
Sextant is only doing slightly better, but cost twice as much.....

Main disadvantage of both series: Lack of shielding against unwanted signals on other bands or from other than the desired directions. (Creates 'noise' or interferences)

Re: NV2 compatible radioboards ?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone can clarify this for me.
Is Nv2 limited to non-N cards or does it work with some N cards too?
Many Thanks,
flipdee

Re: RB411 and RB 433AH with XR2 radios - 200 concurrent user

Yet again, Silicon Valley already produced the answer; "bandsteering" where the dualband (dual radio) actually denies a dualband client's probes in the 2,4Ghz radio and allows the 5Ghz association. User won't even notice and you get every 5Ghz capable device on 5Ghz. How many such device you'll have...

Re: Use of RTS/CTS in Wireless

HI all, Have a AP that I built usinga RB433AH and a XR5 card, running ROS 5.14. It is configured to do WPA2 and AES encryption. I tried to use RTS/CTS on CPEs only and noted that I can't browse the internet when connected to a CPE if the RTS/CTS threshold is not set to the default of 2346 bytes. Sh...

Re: RB411 and RB 433AH with XR2 radios - 200 concurrent user

I don't know. I hope for you your connected users are not really going to demand real data streams. Before you know your network will crash.... Under low traffic demand you might expect to server 30-40 clients per radio and since 802.11b/g only has 3 relatively separated channels (don't try NV2 in s...

Re: Wireless client roaming

Are you talking about a moving client? Or static? When you talk about a moving client it would be very normal to expect client switches between AP. When you talk about static client you do a scan, pick the best AP and by means of the 'connect-to' list in the client make him to use that AP only. Like...

When I have a signal issue with a CPE that is using a grid I swap it for a panel and generally the problem goes away. Is that with similar gain antenna? Otherwise its not a real comparison.

Re: Connecting 2 omnidirectional anntenas to r52hn

My best N AP has a 12dBi omni and a 9dBi omni, both mounted directly to the aluminum housing, 12 on top, 9 on the bottom. If I disable the 9dBi antenna I lose 4-6dB signal. Hmmm, Every 3dB means doubling (or halving) the signal. 2 x 12dBi antenna would give double the signal of only one, so 15dBi 1...

Hello

Thanks for posting this. I have just one question. What is the difference between the prerouting and forward chain when setting up mangle to mark packets for voip connection ?

If you want to play that way, where did you learn to read? I never said it is not possible. "You cannot just attach two antennas to single device." reads to me as it is not possible....

Diversity is meant to be used in narrow closed space not in open field. In open, it is just call for trouble. You cannot just attach two antennas to single device. You have to match them properly (use exact the same antenna, use exact the same cable lenghts measured properly and space antennas prop...

Re: Connecting 2 omnidirectional anntenas to r52hn

Two same polarized omnis would just cause interference. Wrong, that is called antenna diversity, a technology used by many cellular phone operators. Two antenna's can just pick up better signal on one of them then only one can. But it can only be done by radio's with 2 or more signals outputs that ...

In such populated area as you show us 2,4Ghz is probably a bad choice for deploying a WISP. Unless you want to serve laptops etc. with a hotspot. For a fixed network it is not the best choice. Loads of people will have 2,4Ghz wifi routers nowadays and many other devices (mobiles, smartphones, pad's,...
