NanoStationlocoM5 understanding of use.

I want to hook this 1 unit off my Actiontec DSL modem.  Plug into ethernet port and run this to unit and beem toward my garage 250 feet away and have internet and wireless camera in garage. Is this the correct way?

No, it's not. You should use a pair of radios to create

a link to the garage and then provide WiFi and camera

devices there by plugging them into the radio LAN jack.

 

A pair of NS-5AC radios is my advice; mount them on

the outside of the buildings--not inside near the modem.   Dave

If you want that link, you should follow my advice.

These radios are cheap--even if you buy two.   Dave
