Hi,Have you tried to use ethernet power plug, something like "Powerline (One Tenda PA202 + One Tenda P202) Wireless Power line Adapter Extender WiFi hotspot 200Mbps Ethernet Network Adaptor" this might be an option
I'll fire up two hAp lites right now and do some testsI guess you could try using the new REP wireless package, an extend the signal from one room to another using 2 hAP lites, that way you will have wireless and ethernet in the desired room
I was just reading the specs on the Loco M2. That will be my plan B if plan A fails. I have no fear of 2.4ghz interference, as I said there are no 2.4 wifi networks there.I suggest you try, two ubnt NanoStation Loco M2 to each other on the radio, if the fear of 2.4g interference, then use loco m5, should be able to solve your problem.
Looks interesting.Hap lite is really weak. Try to use sxt2 (lite) in your server room pointed at the distant hap lite.
I noticed SXT 2 Lite has a Leve 3 license wich can do "CPE, PTP" and SXT 2 has a level 4 wich can do "CPE, AP, PTP". Does that mean I would not be able to set the SXT 2 Lite as a regular AP? Only as a PTP? What exactly CPE includes?Yes, that is my idea. In case of still bad reception, just put second sxt towards and make ptp link.
Let's see if I understand:You do not need to worry about the licence level in this case. Expecting you will set the hap in ap bridge mode with local forwarding enabled and connect the sxt from the bottom as ordinary client. The sxt will be in station bridge mode. In case you will need to put another sxt on the top to make ptp link, the level 3 license will be enough also.
You would need level4 license in case the device should act as ap accepting more than one client at the time.
CPE means client station.
That is awsome!Exactly. Actually you don't even need to assign any ip address, everything will be in bridging mode so it will act like a wire running from switch to switch. You can use vlans if you need.
Ok, the SXT2 Lite came today and I got to play a little with it. Its awsome!Exactly. Actually you don't even need to assign any ip address, everything will be in bridging mode so it will act like a wire running from switch to switch. You can use vlans if you need.

Hi,Sorry for delay, it was in long queue of unread posts...
What is actual situation?
Looks like everything should be bridged so if you connect the pc to the ether1 of sxt you should get normal connection to the main router like you would use direct cable. Is that so?
For management of the devices put administrative mac address to the bridges and set dhcp client on the bridges. Then the devices will get ip from your main router and you will be able to easily manage them.
Thank you for such good info!You did it right. Having management ip on the devices allows them not only to be managed with winbox over tcp (which is much more stable than over mac), but also provides ability to get the time, to download updates if you want, to send the log messages to your central syslog, to answer snmp and winbox (or telnet or api) type probes and messages from network management system and many other things that are not possible on L2 but only on L3. If you do not need them, you do not have to put ip address to the devices. If you do so, it will not influence their bridging ability.
Like any other panel antenna, it needs to be aligned well. Your problem is that it is indoors and through the walls/ceilings. Generally the best alignment would be to face it directly, but there can be some attenuations and reflections from the obstacles, so none can tell you what placement and what orientation could be the best in your case. You just need to try and see the signal level and its quality numbers. Note that too hot signal is as bad as too weak and you need to check both ways levels. To manage them, you can individually set the tx values on both sides to get as much as the same values on both sides and ideally keep them around -50dbm till -60dbm level.
If you will not be able to get better throughput values, you can think to add second sxt on the other side, move the frequency out of the normally used. Then nothing will interfere and the link should be nicely clear. You can do the same with hap lite too, if you do not need the hap lite for connecting other clients also. At least, make spectral scan by both devices while the second one is off to find the cleanest frequency range you should use.
