Question about setting power of Neutron system

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have one Engenius system setup at one hotel at seaside. Actually it's not a hotel, but there are houses with 3-4 floors each. I've installed primary EWS310AP and EWS300AP. 310 is the model which I have most. I have done it alone with measuring wifi power alone. 5GHz coverage is low unfortunately, there is much concrete there and it's absolutely ridiculous to rely on it. So Ive made setup with Band Steering option. In Monday I have removed this option and after that was a scandal :)  So I turn it on back. 2.4GHz coverage is OK, band steering is setup on "Prefer 5GHz" with 5GHz RSSI -75dBm . Im CCNA , but kinda have to understand some things about WiFi. First - how much dbm means Medium power? Resseller sold me EGS2108P which I don't know for what reason you can't draw enough power to power at High/Highest. Actually when you're with smartphone and don't download aggressively with 80Mbps which is the limit of our ISP you rarely have problems. And offcourse the problem is that AP reboots. Every floor has 2 apartments except for the last floor. There my colleagues have pulled only 1 LAN cable which is used for telephone also. I'm forced to have there EWS500AP which are the cheapest option. Money offcourse are biggest problem. I'm installing EWS500AP there using only 4 wires - orange and green for example. They're only on 2.4GHz, which won't be a problem with this band steering. Second - I have to cover outside area and somehow make it part of this Neutron system. I had Ubiquity Nanostaion M2 there and there weren't problems , But since I've setup Engenius system with password problems. I have replaced it with EWS660AP, but it's omni directional and kinda doesn't work so good, but it covers large enough area. I've tried with ENH 202 to make it with thhe same settings but roaming doesn't work. I can't roam from engenius system to ENH202 standalone.
