Long Range Wireless Solution


Recommended Posts

We have been tasked with extending the wireless network from a location a mile away through lots of trees.

From the research I've done it won't happen with 2.4Ghz and not sure why but they said you need to power through the trees with 5Ghz.

Also directional is better than omni-directional. Concentrate all the power in one direction.

Directional Antenna

That system looks nice but I thought lower band radio frequencies transmit through building materials easier than higher band frequencies. So you may want to look at NLOS (non-line of sight) when going through trees. There is also nLOS (near Line of Sight) which means you can see the other end but it may have few trees.

I would suggest this unit

Since I have no idea what I'm doing I have reached out to GNS Wireless and Radio Labs and see what they both come back with as a proposal for my situation which is:

Require NLOS WiFi communication through 2miles of thick woods and unable to get above tree line for a direct LOS (Line of Sight). I'm looking for the entire package deal.

Once they respond, I'll post what I discover here.
