Subject: Wireless Range Extender for the xxxxxx Condominium
I was a pleasure to meet you and learn about the two wireless devices that are not reading properly the room temperature from the apt 418 and 402.
After analyzing and testing the actual network configuration I discovered that the wireless device stored in unit 418 is not working properly because of the weakens of the wireless signal set out by the Amped wireless Range extender. When I was testing the strength of the signal with my laptop I was barely able to receive one or two bar signal and with that low signal any devices won’t be able to read and communicate any reading to the IMonnit software. I had also confirmation of this fact after speaking with the tech support of IMonnit Corporation.
Due to the fact that there are no Ethernet jacks anywhere available on the 4th floor, and due to the fact that any Access Point needs an Ethernet port to connect to directly to a switch or router to work properly. My recommendation is to bridge another wireless Range extender to the existing one. The range expander that is in place now is meant to be for home users with limited capabilities. For apartment complex and commercial building I recommend to install a professional cisco Wi-Fi Range Expander that will bridge with the existing one expanding the signal to a further range. In this way even the apt 418 will be able to receive a stronger signal and connect successful the Mowi Wi-Fi Sensor.
I am waiting to hear in the next few days from the Cisco team which one is the most recommended device that will work best to accomplish this goal. As soon as I receive this information I will be able to put together a quote for you.
