I am working on a wireless network with a WAP200E Access Point and (2) WAP200 repeaters
I installed the HGA9N (external omni-antenna) on the WAP200E and it did help improve the signal quite a bit.
From the same remote location (100% metal building with garage door open) I am able to connect directly to the WAP200E with 4 bars and internet
reponds well. When they close the garage door I still receive 3 bars, but I lose connection to the internet.
So I installed a WAP200 internal on the remote building and attached one of the two SMA antenna jacks to a external Yagi 10dBi antenna with a 24" cable
and the other antenna is on the inside of the building to serve the internal wireless needs. The performance is terrible when going thru the repeater...
but from the same location I can select to connect directly to the WAP200E access point and the performance is fine.
I have the same exact configuration in another building and the test results are the same
I am concerned that the external Yagi antenna might be causing a issue with the WAP200 which typically uses a pair of MIMO antenna's
or the WAP200 is just not a very good repeater
Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated
What other repeaters are compatible with the WAP200E?
All the firmware is up to the latest available
