Hello all, first post...
I've purchased a Metal5SHPn-US from Amazon (and upgraded to v6.46.6) for my sailboat so that I may latch onto a distant marina wifi and redistribute it on my boat via a wireless router.
Down here in St Maarten, I cannot see *any* wireless networks, not even the ones I broadcast with my phone or other hotspot device. I also cannot see any 2.4Ghz networks... Is that what the 5 in the model name means? Where am I going wrong?
I have an older Ubiquiti Bullet M2 that works, but only sees the older 2.4Ghz networks, so I thought the MikroTik would be a nice upgrade. Hmm, I'm using the antenna from the Bullet on the Metal, would it not pull in the proper frequencies for the Metal?
Did I buy the wrong device for what I'm doing? Also, since i presume this device is locked to the US, is this the wrong unit to be trying to connect in other countries?
Thank you for any input.
