Mixing Indoor and Outdoor antennas


I have a case, where we have three balkonies and they should have good wireless coverage. All three balkonies are spread in three directions.

The isolations between floor and balkony is realy huge. Even if I move the AP two meter in front of the wall, I just get -75 to -80 dbm on the outside.

Now I'm asking myself wether its possible to move one of the three antennas of the indoor AP on the outside for serving those clients.

Or do you have any other good ideas? Haveing three outdoor AP would be overkill for this office.

Kind regards

Re: Mixing Indoor and Outdoor antennas

Your external antennas on the same access point should all cover the same space, otherwise your performance will drop considerably.

You should cover a space with all the antennas, or do not cover it with any antennas.
