I want to replace all of my Tranzeo 4500 AP's with RB411-AH boards and Engenius NMP8602 PLUS S cards. I tested today and the result was much less power. I tested this on a sector that had 8 subscribers and each showed at least 50-60% lower signals. If this card really puts out 600mW then I must have a setting wrong. I opened the TR-4500 and noticed it has an amp. I cannot tell what the manufacture of the amp is but I know that the board is a Z-Com.
I want to replace them all because of the ability to do site surveys among the other cool features in Mikrotik. BTW: The TR-4500's advertise 27dB EIRP
I tried a few different power settings since the default was 17dB. I tried 23, 27, 30 and didn't notice the power I get with the TR-4500.
Has anyone compared these 2 radios?
Does anyone have any advice?
