Hi friends !
I am working as System Administrator in an educational institute. To facilitate wireless to our users, our IT staff that is implementing wireless network has purchased some Linksys WAP2000 Wireless-G Access Points with Power Over Ethernet.
Now, they have mounted one such AP (with a casing to protect it from rain) at the height of about 50 meters on a very long tower. The tower is also located near to one end of our institute premise (Means the AP may radiate the signals on the road also. Please correct me if I am wrong.)
Please tell me&
Is it OK and professional to mount this model of AP to that height ? Will it work ?
What is the coverage of this AP ? If it is written that a particular AP can cover 40 meters of distance then is it radius 40 meters (covering 80 meters of circular area) or it is 20 meters (covering 40 meters of circular area).
