ptp 100m line of sight



I've just bought a house with no broadband connection. My brother lives about 100m LOS (320ft) away from me and has a 250mbit/s fiber connection.


I can't decide what radios to buy. I just want maxium speed out of that fiber connection for about 200 euros.


Should i buy a pair of Nanostation M5 or Nanobeam ACs(NBE-A5AC-16) ?


Excuse my bad english.

AC is better than M5. M5 will top out around 80 to 90 Mbps under ideal conditions.

Remember to get the ISP's written approval for sharing the connection like this.

I used the Nanobeam 5AC 16 and they worked perfectly for 200ft line of site.  I did not need 622mbps so I adjusted from Auto to 30mhz (you can leave on Auto for 622mbps) Be sure to adjust power to about 4dBm.  See attached
