Laptop receives signal, high power long range EnGenius does not. How does this work?
Posted on 2010-11-22
I just bought an EnGenius EOC5611P. I set it up about 200 ft from a building where I have a simple linksys router inside the building. It cannot catch the signal, where as just about any laptop can get a low signal, even if the linksys is not visible. Is this how it's supposed to work or is the EnGenius not as high powered as advertised. It's advertised range is 30km. Is this true?
Would the engenius reach even 10 or 15 km if the 2 devices were visible to each other??
