Airgrid AG-HP-2G16 installation on farm

by on ‎04-18-2015 11:24 AM

My first experence with Ubiquiti and setting up two AG-HP-2G16's to extend an internet conection has been a complete success. I mounted the equipment and configed it myself. It was very easy and I cant believe I had not come into contact with this type of gear sooner. The distance was about 700 feet through a forest and though certainly not ideal link conditions it seems to be working very well.

Nice, do you have any screen shots of the main tabs?

 I will get some screenshots of the main tabs next time I pick up a share at this farm.

I think, your feed was mounted in a wrong polarisation. The grid is mounted in vertical polar, but the feed is in horizontal.

If you change the feed polarization, you get a better signal Man Happy

Hello!
Both ends of the link must be in the same polarity, the airgrid has the advantage of changing polarity to horizontal or vertical, it work better depending on the case.
However this badly mounted. For the polarity that has the grid, the ap have that it will stay in the side and the Ethernet output down.
With this equipment you can reach 30 mb/s without any problems

Thanks for pointing this out

the polarization is corrected indicated by the grid and feed horn orientation but it looks like 1 of the grids is upside down.

this will not affect performance but could significantly shorten the life of the grid if water gets in there but I think this is

an optical illusion based on the bracket gaps
