hAP AC2 antenna performance?

Thu Feb 11, 2021 7:53 pm

I'm considering getting a hAP AC2 to use as an access point, not a router. It would be placed in a closet with thin walls, but this could be an issue for its antennas. In your opinion, do you think the AC2 is a good performer, or would a cAP AC be better? The goal is to reach MCS9 from 10 feet (3m) away with the only obstacle to line of sight being a sheet of drywall.

The cAP ac has separate antennas for 2 and 5 GHz, so it might have a slightly better signal than hAP ac2 with its shared antennas. But either way, if you want a good signal you shouldn't hide your APs behind drywall
