Thank you chechito for replay.
I want bay 802.11ac for max throughput. What it's on 80Mhz channel?
I'll set minimum TX power, but which antennas will be better: 24 degree or 90 degree?

Regards :)

You will probably want the 24 degree sxt with higher gain. The 90 degree is meant to be PTMP AP.

80mhz will be fine
