    Increasing the 5GHz WiFi range?

    My router has 3x 5dBi RP-SMA antennas on it and I would like to extend the range on the 5GHz band. I would use the 2.4 band since it has a longer range but the neighbours router is set to have the channel on 'auto' and it keeps dropping my devices, so I took everything off and switched them all...

    Has anyone else seen a performance difference in Upper/Lower 5GHz bands?

    ... A difference in PERFORMANCE I should have said. Can't edit that now. While I was digging for some information about whether my RT-AC68U (B2) is the identical same as RT-AC68P (which I still don't know) I stumbled down a rabbit hole leading to FCC certification documents for FCC ID...

    Antenna direction and replacement questions

    I have an Asus RT-AC68U. I'm experimenting with antenna direction and replacement. I hate to ask a dumb question, but what is the best placement for the three antennas? Angle the two outside antennas at about 45 degrees parallel to the router and let the middle antenna stand straight up? And to...

    Round router - antenna coverage considerations?

    Hello, Is anyone enlighted in the area of how an antenna in around router is affecting how it should be placed for best coverage? If it matters at all. I have a couple of Lyra minis and before I make their placement final I'd like to explore if they are better off placed horizontally or...

    Repeater antenna question

    My base router is an Asus AC87U, and I'm using an AC68U as a repeater. Works pretty well; the AC68U reports "Link rate: 234 Mbps, RSSI: -58 dBm" and we get up to 60 mbps (of our 200mbps) through it. The AC87U is in the guest house/office, with just 1 ethernet client, and the AC68U is in the...

    Amplify antenna signal or amplify signal from Moca Adapter distribution splitter

    Getting ready to cut the cord from my full blown cable services using Internet 100 services provided by the same service provider. I will be installing an attic antenna for OTA channels, Tablo, moca adapters and Roku Ultras. While I have researched a lot and have my cable wiring and device plan...

    ASUS RT-AC86U Antenna Upgrade / ai mesh

    Hi, so I have a RT-AC86U which is currently plugged into coaxial cable in my kitchen on the ground floor directly beneath my room, this is the most efficient place I can have my router as I'm limited by the cable length so not much option to move it around or upstairs. So the wifi signal has to...

    Sharing Antennas for 4x4 Dual Band

    Does anyone know of a mux or similar device that can take output from 2 different Wifi 4x4 radios (one a 2.4G and the other 5G; both use the Broadcom BCM43465 MU-MIMO chipset) and connect them to the same 4 antennas? I don't want to use 8 antennas so looking for way to share the same 4 antennas...

    High Gain Antennas

    Hi All. Just want to ask community: is installation of high gain antennas really improves the signal sensitivity for the router? Found this item, and I am pretty sure it will work with any 2.4 / 5.0 GHz if it work at all (wavelength is the same, connection port is the same). But is it really...

    TP-Link Archer C8 - signal not strong enough - high gain antenna options?

    I'm not sure that I need a repeater as moving my router about 8 feet provides adequite coverage (without moving it, coverage is insufficient) but moving it that 8 feet isn't a viable permanent spot for the router. So I was thinking maybe some high gain antennas might do the trick. Can anyone...
