WiFi Routers...

So, I'm reading up on Wireless AC routers and found that they broadcast in exclusively the 5GHz band. Now, my question is, how can you determine the output levels of signal prior to purchasing a new router? If I'm going to get an AC router, I feel like I will need to make up for the 5ghz band and increase my output levels or get a router that has better antennas. (I currently have a repeater set up on Wireless G.)

My ASUS (RT-AC66U) has programmable output up to 200 mw (default is 80). Document says that it knows regional regulations. I guess that means that if you live in a 100 mw region, it will limit you to that 100 mw regardless of how high you set it.

Location of the router is KEY! Put it middle floor in the middle of the house.  I don't know how many people stuff it in there basement.  I got the Netgear R6300! Best one I use to have Linksys but it was wearing out.  I love the Netgears range!!! Especially the 5ghz band

Ubiquiti products = real range and reliability for the right price

We talkin' something like this, then?

What model would you recommend?  I'm interested in this, especially looking at the reviews.

Depends on what you need... 2 mile backhaul shot?

That'd be kind of cool. I would have a strong WiFi at my job, which is 2 miles.

Apparently, nobody noticed this exchange from last summer...

 

Does my Ubiquiti Nanostation 30 foot in the air pointed towards the park count? I can pull a mile with ease.

Is the vegetation all brown on that narrow path to the park?  What are the cancer rates along that route?

 

;)

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
