I choosed the Rb411 + R52 + 30dbi grid antenna combo
Today the link was up, and with hours of configuration I only can get max 5mbps throughput.
What card should I try next, r52h/r52hn/xr5 ?
any advices appreciated. thanks.
You think BIGER is BETTER?
You cant solve your ignorance with bigger antenas or stronger cards.
Please start with looking on tha area:
do you have free sight ?
free fressnell area ?
do you have some reflection materials nearly or in the link direction?
Than discover for another wirelles:
how noisy is your area?
did you find some "clear" channel?
did you some indoor performance tests of your configuration?
is there some another limitation, like cpu speed, forgoten que
....... try to think about
Finding solution / find what is wrong
CPU load too high
Low signal compared to calculated "should" values
Good signal but low modulation
So what is wrong on your link ?
R52 + 27dBi antenas
hmmm ... do you have -56/-56dB signal ? if not, try to start with finding wire, aligment or another problem.
for 7km link you dont need this "extra" power, and "TOO BIG" antenas makes just too strong input sensitivity, and the cards must just listen to too strong signal form another sources (too much noise)
R52 + 24dB antenas is enough avaiting -62/-62dB anough for good link
try antenas like that
for better noise imunity from nearby sources.
Tell us more about you r configuration and actual values from your link
