I'm a newbie to wireless beyond simple wifi routers.
I am helping out a temple near me - they have the main building and then another building across a parking lot - about 300' apart. We cleaned out trees in a small wooded area between them so they really do have line of sight. again, 300' apart at most.
we mounted nanostation loco m2 units INSIDE windows pointing to each other.
Attached are the main page's' for the 2 units. From what I read, these things can go MUCH farther than what we are doing. output power on both units is 21 dBm - the highest it goes.
So considering how close they are and at full power, should I be disappointed that airmax capacity is only 78%? or can you look over these 2 pages and see what you think / maybe explain to me the graphs and what the other things mean. I guess I know what they mean - I saw the ubiquiti pages about the items. but they don't say if x a good or bad number or how to change things? Is there a way to tweak things? I used the align the antenna tool and I could turn the m2 as far as the mounting bracket woudl allow and there'd be maybe 1 db change from the 50 or so horiz /vertical readings. (being so close at the high power, a far out of physical alignment makes no difference?!
