I have an access point Advantech (EKI-6311GN) and i need to find the best combination to get the signal as far as it can get. I have two settings :
Antenna Gain (dBi)
Maximum output power (dBm)

Antenna gain goes from 0 to 14
MOP goes from 12 to 26.

Whatever combination i use, the sum of the two cannot be over 26, it is blocked.

Anyone know how these should be used ?

Thanks !
