I hate to say it, but i have no experience with 5ghz ptp over distance.
I've done 2.4, and 900 with no issues. But I have a .75 mile link (1.2km) link between a 20 story building and a 4 1/2 story building. Its right through the top of a leafy oak tree.
I know there are alot of 2.4 APs around (consumer) so i wanted to use 5ghz, for the improved latency and Bandwithd, and less interfearence (right?)
I wanted to use a rootenna on one end, which will be going through a thin glass window, no lead, then the tree and directly to the other roof top.
I wanted to use R52s if possible.
any input before i get out there and waste time potentially? im not a fool, i know u guys cant give me numbers or anything specific about the link quality, but what i'm looking for is some kind of input on 5ghz through the top of a tree.....for all i know that may be a BIG no-no.
this is not a serious link, only 2-3mbit for like 10 very casual web browsers..and maybe a few low low use voip lines.
Thanks for the help.
