802.11n single chain AP best solution

Tue Nov 08, 2011 6:18 pm

Hi Everybody!

What is the best solution for use 150 Mbps connection speed with mikrotik?
We want to use for build a new ap for Airgrid M5 clients.

We plan this configuration:
433AH board, R52Hn miniPCI card, 1 polarity sector.

Is it possible to use R52Hn in singe chain to reach 150 Mbps connection speed?

Thanks for the fast reply, or all any solution.

Yes.

I have a few out there with two omni antennas, one on top, one on bottom, works quite well. Dual chain, single stream, excellent signal.

I've been using AG2's for my clients recently, work fine with the extension channel, tho it isn't particularly useful at 2.4GHz.

edit: I have one Loco M5 out there, will not connect with the extension channel.

I want to use with 1 simplex antenna in single chain, not with 2 antenna.

I lose 3-6dB if I disable one chain.

This is the best way I've found for a single stream configuration. I will not put another 802.11n radio on a tower without dual antennas whether they're dual stream or not.

I used an aluminum enclosure with the N male antennas connected directly to the pigtail, one 12dBi, one 9dBi (cheap and improves coverage nearby below the tower), one on top, one on bottom.

150 mbps at single chain not possible. max. it will take u to 65 mbps with 802.11n.
Atleast thats what i have got.

Infact i find some of my r52hn AP's hang when i use them with dual chain & dual pol. sectors. Need to reboot them frequently to get it working in PtmP and without NV2.

Why not possible 150 mbps in 20/40 Mhz?
