Re: Long Range WiFi -- Posting right now using "long range" wireless
I am in an attempt to set this up for a friend of mine that is getting ready to live aboard his Island Packet in the Bahamas. I have read so many threads on the setup that now I am almost more lost than when I started.
I plan to buy one of the Bullets and antenna as well as POE and Cat5.
From what I have read there is little difference between the Bullet M2HP (newer version) and the Bullet 2HP in performance. I have found that they are priced the same. So how do I decide between the two?
Antenna's seem to be a big question in this setup. From what I have read it seems that bigger is not always better in omni directional antennas. So I'm trying to decide between 8/10/12 db antenna. Please help me with that.
The POE and cable is easy enough. But If you guys could point me to a seller that has all of the pieces that would be great. Give me part numbers and I'll buy you a virtual beer. Hell I'll buy the house a round.
Part of my problem deciding on these items is that threads like this one and others discussing the Bullet were started a couple years ago. In electronics that seems to be a long time, things change. So looking for today's suggestions.
