I am looking for some input on what type of long-range outdoor wifi AP/Bridge/Router to get. I am currently setting up an Engenius EOC-3610S-EXT Wireless G Access Point to cover an area of about 100m2 and serve a maximum of 22 clients. I'll let you know how that goes.
What I'm looking for now is a solution for the other part of campus. We've got four bungalows with no wired ports. So, I'm trying to bring wifi to that area. These will be a maximum of four clients per bungalows, meaning 16 clients. These bungalows are evenly spaced out over a 100m2 area, and this area is about 60m-70m away from the nearest ethernet port (Computer Lab). No wifi in range. Midway from that eth port to the bungalow is a structure (Pool House) where I could install an outdoor AP/Bridge/Router. So, we're looking at an actual distance of 30m-40m.
So, I want to install the outdoor unit either at the outside of the Computer Lab or even at the Pool House. What would your hardware choices be for this scenario?
i pretty much dont like wireless thing because sometimes it cant be predictable/dependable.
but - there are good APs - bridge - routers.
before you make a decision - do take a site survey using some demo product - so you wont be disappointed.
i did use couple of cisco ap1200-1300 for some manufacturing (heavy industries) warehouses - and they perform well enough at approximately 75+ meters under heat and very high humidity, and bunch of obstacles/barrier.
