It's the e400 cnPilot

 

 

Dumb question maybe, but does the e400 and e410 work together?

 

 

Whenever you are mixing manufacturers/models:

 

  • Roaming will not work between different manufacturers.  This is because the 802.11 standard does not specify have client information is to sent through the distribution system (the LAN).  This means that each manufacturer has a different way of packaging the information resulting in incompatibilities.  Therefore, when possible, don't mix different manufacturer's access points together.
  • If you are mixing 802.11ac Wave One and Two access points disable the MU-MIMO on the 802.11ac Wave Two access points.
  • If you are mixing access points that have different numbers of spatial streams (one may be a two spatial stream access point while the other is three) ensure that the MCS data rates are the same across all the access points.  In the scenario of a two spatial stream and a three spatial stream access point you would disable the three spatial stream MCS rates on the three spatial stream access point.

For the Cambium e410:
4.55 (2.4Ghz) 4.25dBi (5Ghz)

Is that good or bad in my case?

 

 

It is neither good nor bad it just is.  Cambium have "edged their bets" and utilised antennas that sit in the middle of the typical omni-directional gain range.

 

For your deployment I would use the 5 GHz spectrum for multimedia and other time sensitive applications with non-essential traffic (kids) on 2.4 GHz.  You would do this by having two SSIDs - one 2.4 GHz only and one 5 GHz only.  Set the 5 GHz transmit power 3 dB higher than the 2.4 GHz transmit power (this should make both radio's coverage area approximately the same).

Seriously, thanks a lot for your info.
By the way, in regards to the garage, we're thinking of turning it into a room, so we would need coverage there too.

We're also thinking of switching the location of the kitchen and livingroom around.

On the existing plan, one on the celing between the dining and lounge. The other upstairs on the celing in the hallway. 

 

What sort of router are you going to use?  As you will find on these threads, the bog standard ISP routers cant handle much more than two handfuls of devices (thats including switches, APs, alarms, tvs, phone, tablets etc).

So if we swap the lounge and dining room around, still between those two areas?
Will it cover the garage, which we will turn into a room?

Huawei HG659 (the one Spark supplies).
Will that be adequate?

I would be getting 2 access points for the place, can always turn the power down on them if they are to shouty.

 

 

one upstairs, one downstairs, should more than cover your place.
