Posted 4/4/2021 16:39 (#8933799) Subject: What radio to use to get wifi access in my farm stead yard
Currently using nano station m2 radios to get internet from a remote location, 1/2 mile away, from a cell phone based home internet box.
This gets internet delivered to 3 houses, including mine.
In my house, I have a amplifi HD router . I do not have any meshpoints.
I would like to get something mounted outside & higher up, to have coverage with my cell phone, while outside between buildings or even in side outbuildings.
Absolutely no cell phone signal in this location.
Best I can tell, the mesh units for the amplifi are not made for mounting outside. Can't find any details on the actual coverage they would have, if mounted outside, in some kind of enclosure. Would they stand cold weather or summer sun?
Could someone give me specific equipment to use. Ubiquiti web sites are hard for me to understand.
I see a fair amount of comments on doing this, but not enough detail to understand exactly what is needed.
Don't really want to trash all the equipment I presently have, cattle prices haven't been good!
Location is down in a river valley, so there would be no interface from any equipment other than my own.
