Hi

I visited a small business today that is situated beneath a high-voltage power line

They have rubbish ADSL bandwidth and apparently they can't benefit from satellite dish access because of the overhead power lines.

I would like to equip their premises with Wifi access points (interior and exterior)

Can anyone tell me if this is feasible ?

What about transmitting the uplink bandwidth via a point to point RF link (5GHz) any issues there ?

thanks

I think you will get too much interference from the over head power lines to make this work. I would go with a fiber optic backbone and cat 5e cabling.

Thanks for the response; unfortunately fiber isn't an option

On another forum someone indicated that, based on his experience,
the overhead power lines shouldn't be an issue

The power lines won't be an issue.  If you're near a mains substation or transformer that's a different story though.

I would think a few feet from high voltage power lines your main cause of interference may be arcing, which would be devastatingly destructive.

Perhaps better to screen your electrics product on Fiberstore with a faraday cage and ensure your chokes/filters are all taking 50-60Hz to ground.
