OK.  So the maximum cable length of one segment is 100 meters for the coax right? So the question is, is the WAP cabable of being a repeater to repeat the signal another 10 meters.  I think some WAP are capable of being repeaters.  Check the specs.  Just a thought.

Yes the WAP i'm using is capable of being repeaters. So can I say that if i use 100 meter of coax cable on 1 segment and another 10 meter on the other segment, there will be minimum data loss? please advise. THank you.

You know what?  I don't know.  I just looked at your question again and you have the CFD400 coaxial cable.  I am quite unfamiliar with this.  I found one good link to it.


I really couldn't tell you what these spec's mean.  Any Wireless WAN folks in the house that can help?

I can't edit my last post but I'm changing my answer to yes, you should be OK.  If you have regular coax cable, you should be OK.
