UAP-AC-M week signal on 5Ghz

Hello!

 

I'm using some UAP-AC-M. Why much weaker the wireless signal in 5Ghz than 2Ghz? The transmit power 20db same 2Ghz and 5Ghz.

Can anybody tell the answer?

Running on the newest 4.x firmware and 5.9.29 controller.

5Ghz does not progagate through walls and obstuctions as much as 2.4GHz and is more line of site.

Hello @peter_barlabas,

 

5GHz doesn't penetrate walls that well.

How far are you standing away from the UAP?

Just 3m, but the AP and me between there is a 30cm wall. Mad2

Anyway can I overclock a little the UAP-AC-M?

 5Ghz signal will be attenuated by the wall and the degree of loss also depends on the walls construction.

Incrreasing power isnt the real answer for reasons I explained above and you can't do it. You may be better moving the AP or adding another AP to the area to be covered.

Hello @peter_barlabas,

 

Get another UAP for full 5GHz coverage or use 2.4GHz.

This AP working 2Ghz and 5Ghz same time. 2Ghz signal is very good behind the wall, but 5Ghz very poor.

Unfortunatelly there isn't more cable for a new AP.

Hello @peter_barlabas,

 

Then there is nothing much you can do besides either running a new cable or using 2.4GHz.

Ok, last tip: bigger antennas?

The very small budget for more cable is much easier to attain than bigger antennas
