Hello hello,

 

So in a few days I will no longer need these. They are about 4 weeks old, as I recently purchased them to borrow Internet off my neighbour down the road while I am waiting for Fibre to be installed.

 

They perform awesomely in all weather. I only have it going about 200m, but get a 190/80 Mbps connection rate between the AP's. I live in a complex with about 30-40 other WiFi networks, which doesn't seem to affect the performance much. Pings can sometimes spike on occasion from all the noise.

 

One is currently sitting outside on my deck, and the other is in my neighbours house on the inside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

$80 each or $150 for the kit incl free Shipping in NZ.

 

 

 

I no longer have the boxes, but will ship with of bubble wrap

We use and like these devices.  We have some providing wifi coverage in a warehouse (peering down the aisles) as these have a 60 degree beam angle (from memory) and they are fantastic for that directional coverage.  It also means, as you have found, that doing a point to point link you don't need to be too fussy about the alignment.

 

You might like to add a photo of the PoE injector for those who have not used PoE before, and possibly offer to leave them set up as a matched pair for the new purchaser.

Yeah I have them pretty well aligned currently, but on occasion I move the AP at my end when im cleaning the space its sitting on, and it deals with it fine when lying on its side on the floor about 45deg out of alignment. I can add a photo of the PoE injector later today after work. I just listed this with the photos I had on me. But both AP's will come with their own injector. :)

 

 

 

And yeah, if the buyer would like me to keep them configured (or have me setup with their requirements), I can do so!

For those unaware, this is how they work. There is a PoE injector with LAN in and LAN + Power out:

 

 

The PoE out plugs into the AP to power it and provide a network connection.

 

 

And as you can see in this photo, this is how I have it mounted, facing towards my generous neighbour in the distance. In the photo you can't see the lights, but there are LED indicators for signal strength, which can be used to quickly align the units without using the Web GUI.

 

 

 

 

Awesome little affordable units. So many use cases for them!

Need to confirm with SWMBO.
