Connecting an AP LR to M2

Good Morning People,

First of all,

  • I'm from Costa Rica (main language Spanish, but no problem with english or french)
  • This is my first time in the community.
  • Sorry if a have mistakes with posting.
  • All firmwares updated today 21/06/2017.

My problem is simple to fix but by the moment I dont know how. I'll explain very easy.

I want to connect an Unifi AP LR wiresless to a NanoStation Loco M2, so:

 

NanoStation Loco M2

  1. It will be outside my office.
  2. It will be connected through wires from a switch. (to get internet & power)
  3. It's supposed to share wifi inside my office that is 5 mts next to it.
  4. It's supposed to share wifi from outside my office to an outdoor AP LR located about 75mts in other office.
  5. Between both "devices" there's only trees and more trees, no buildings. (Its Costa Rica)

 

↓↓↓

Unifi AP LR

  1. It will be just outside the second office. (to avoid unnecessary obstacles)
  2. It will be connected through wires ONLY for Power. (obviously)
  3. It's supposed to only share wifi to no more than 4 devices. (so, low traffic there)
  4. From the Nano M2 it is about 73 mts or 240 ft far.

Now that I explained everything what I want is to send signal from my M2 to my AP LR the thing is that, with my Unifi Controller in my PC I can detect by the moment only other AP LR that I already have, but no M2.

Then today I learned how to connect directly to the M2 by the ip 192.168.1.20... (blah blah blah)

 

So I have access to both of them (but not together in a "same system") but the "settings" is the thing...

Help me!

 

 

((I tried this LINK provided from Support here, but it is not my case, I think))

((I tried this LINK too but nothing))

 

Is it me the problem?

Re: Connecting an AP LR to M2

I'm really confused by this.

 

You say you want to 'send a signal from [your NanoStation Loco] M2

to [your UAP-] AC LR'. I believe that means the NS-Loco-M2 has

access to the Internet and the UniFi radio does not.

 

But the UniFi radio is an access point--it provides access to the

Internet or network--it doesn't get that access from elsewhere. The

only exception is using an uplink--something very different.

 

If you want to do this the other way: to use the NS-Loco as a client

to the UniFi radio, that's possible. But of course it depends on the

quality of the signal. And you can't 'share wifi' from a client--unless

you mean by connecting a LAN network to it.

 

This doesn't sound like a very good plan, because WiFi signals don't

pass well through trees, walls and other obstacles. Link radios

should be on the outside of buildings--not buried within them.

 

And if you're in a city, there may be interference on this band.    Dave

I'll check that!
Thanks!
