Has anyone deployed an IAP 104 with 4x AP-ANT-13B with good results?
I am looking to deploy this setup in a ship for 4-6 crew cabins, one AP should be enought the issue I have is all the metal everywhere, so if I deply one AP in the Hallway, as soon as doors are closed the WiFi signal drops off. I was thinking of putting the IAP 104 in and running 1x AP-ANT-13B to the ceilings of the cabins.
I wondered if this would be adequate of if I am better off with a higher gain Yagi style antenna(s) hidden in the Ceilings?
Without knowing the environment, this can be tricky. Even if the signal is strong enough from the AP, can the AP hear the return from the client?
I would say run the AP or antenna to the room itself. Depending on the length of the antenna cable, keep in mind the dB loss over distance.
My idea Seth was to locate the AP in the corridor ceiling and then run the 4 antenna to the cabins one per cabin so the layout resembles a 4 pointed star.
I will let you know how we proceed!
