Long-range wireless cards...

Eric Van Lochem

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie on this list (from the posting point of view), however I have been a long-time reader of the all the posted topics -- but I found this one to be of particular interest, I'm wondering if anybody has any experience with this wireless card and whether it might be a good bet to spend the money on this one!

Basically a company by the name of Ubiquiti (relatively new) created it, and I have searched high and low on the net for specs on this card. From what I can find it has a receive sensitivity of -97dbm, a transmit power of 24dbm (at 1Mbps, I believe...I'm not sure what it is at 11Mbps?), and of course it's 300mW. I have heard that the range of this thing maybe on the edge of "several miles" but anything really in-depth is hard to come by. It seems like a plug (but I hope not...)

I found it on EBay at http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1
