    You really nead a clear LOS for the bes speed.

    LBE-5AC-GEN2 will work great.  The gen 2 eqipment has some features that make set up eaiser.  Buy them if you can find them.  The gen 1 equipment wil be fast enough.

    But, the equipment doesnt matter near as much as having a clear LOS.

    Your biggest problem is the trees. You will want a total clear LOS to get the best speeds out of any 5 Ghz radio.

    I would recommend moving the radios or tree so that you have a clear LOS. The try with your current equipment. If you still want to upgrade your equipment, go with a PowerNeam AC. They will get you way past 80 Mbps on a narrow channel.

    If you have a cleare line of site you can build two bridges using two pairs of NanoBeam NBE-5AC-19.  Should give you speed test results of over 400Mbps.

    That is not correct.  Streakwave has 39 AF-11FX-H radios in stock.

    Streakwave has zero AF-11FX-DUP-H duplexers in stock.

    I would try the product locater.

    I stand by my product recommendations. When used as an AP, the NanoBeam may not have the beam width to cover all three stations.

    I prefer the UAP AC PRO over the LR version.  I just like devices that use industry standard 802.at POE.  But if costs is a big issue, you can save a few dollars and buy the cheaper LR version.

    Welcome!

    In a situation like this I would prefer to run pre-terminated fiber to the buildings.  If that is no an option, AirMax equipment will work just fine.

    If speed is not an big deal, You can do this with 4 NanoStation LocoM5 radios.  Use one as the AP.  Place it on the outside of the building with th star. Place the other LocoM5 radios on the outside of the other buildings.  Make sure they point at the AP with nothing in between.  You could get up to 75Mbs with this set up.   I would actually use a narrower channel, even though it means less speed.  You will want to put the radios on buildings 1 and 3 as close to building 3 as possible.  This will allow you to keep all 3 stations within the beam width of the AP.

    I would recommend UAP AC-PROs for the wifi access point.  You can use one in each out building and as many as you need n the main building.  You might want to get a Cloud key.  It wil allow you to easly configure you APs.  It will also allow you to do captive portal and vouchers if you want.

    Good Luck!

    If you have not already done so, try restarting the controller.

    I have bought a couple of the NBE-5AC-16 nanobeam units.

    However Wifi typically works around 30m in a normal house through walls, I appreciate that the unit I mention above is an access point. But assuming these can work in bridge mode then it isn't unreasonable to assume I may be able to achieve higher speeds..

    This is how far we are talking distance wise.


    If both radios placed outside aimed at each other and power turned way down, good chance. If either or both units are indoor separated by coated E glass and/or brick, no way, ever.


    he purchased NanoBeams as recomended, but he is trying to make a case for using UAPs to make this link.
