hello everyone My Name is Tavares and i live in Jamaica, i just want to say what a very nice forum is this.. lets get to the chase..
I have a wifi network that i setup to share internet access throughout a good distance The equipments i have are :
17dbi Array antenna
4 watt amplifier
Router, I am only using 1 antenna to connect,the other is empty.
and these are connected to a D-link wireless Ap.. the problem i am having is that people cannot get connected to the network and if they do get connected it would work and then it would reach to a point where they cannot connect but they can see the signal very strong 5 bars out of 5, they are very close to the setup, i would really want some help because i figure more or less that its the router but i changed it and it was the same prob, i think these router is for home use and not for what i want to do, I see you guys using something called router board i would like to find out what it is.lol.. When i just setup the network it works perfectly fine without security but when i enable mac filtering or use passwords it gives allot of trouble. Please anyone i would like to solve this problem ASAP. help would be gladly appreciated. i forgot to state that i am in testing stages and i test it at my friends house about 200ft away and he is using a pci wifi card with the adjustable antenna. Please help anyone any info needed will be posted ASAP. here a pic of my pole. Thanks in advance/
