Hello everyone,,

My requirements are:

Good signal connection that cover 40 sqm.

Bandwidth capping per user

Port forwarding (for priority playing games)

Redirecting page after connecting (redirect to facebook page)

I will use it for cafe.
Good signal connection that cover 40 sqm
40 square miles ( a box grid of 6.3 miles by 6.3 miles ) or a circle with around a 7-mile diameter.
Doable with 4 or more 90-degree sector antennas
Doable with 12 or more 30-degree sector antennas ( I like RF-Elements )

Bandwidth capping per user
Mikrotik can bandwidth capping per user ( actually it does bandwidth capping per IP address )
Mikrotik can do bandwidth capping per interface on the Mikrotik.
* PfSense ( free ) , as your router that all wireless clients gateway to can do bandwidth capping per connected MAC address ( It works well )

Port forwarding (for priority playing games)
Mikrotik and PfSense can both do this

Redirecting page after connecting
This is a Walled-Garden or also known as a Captive-Portal
Mikrotik and PfSense can both do this

Note - I have a few thousand Mikrotiks and almost 100 PfSense servers in my networks.

...

Reading these two lines together makes me believe OP is writing about square metres ... and any AP positioned centrally will cover square of 7x7 metres just fine.

Re: Yeah but Tom is a Yankee, its all square miles when you put in an "m" in there! ;-)

Here in the states , we use miles.

Yea ... I'm a bone-head Yankee located in North Idaho

m - meter/meters - A meter is equal to 39.37 inches, or slightly more than three feet.
m² - square meter - A square meter is an area that measures one meter in length and width.



m ?

m could be any of the following ?
miles
meters

also
molecules ( really really close stuff )
milk ( yea the white liquid stuff )

Sure. That's where context helps.

Anyway, even it might be off by a few orders of magnitude, your suggestion makes sense ... in different context ;-)

Okay this cannot stand, one has to defend ones closest neighbour!!
Lets talk about https://www.bing.com/news/search?q=Mars ... &FORM=EWRE

If someone were to twist my arm and force me to buy MT wifi it would be the hapac3 due to its ability to use future wifi5 fixes.
The audience is also of that ilk but I think overkill for that small area??

Close - well OK , the United Stated and Canada are real close to each other ---- however ... My WISP/ISP business is 2,500 miles ( 4 thousand km ) from your ISP/WISP. Your ISP business is actually closer to South America or Ireland than to where I am in North Idaho ----- lol :)
