The test results didn't disclose many of the factors affecting WiFi range and performance, I'd like to know more about these. I think the key factors are:
* Nearest other WiFi unit. Interferance from nearby networks can hurt the signal-to-noise ratio.
* Proximity to walls and ground, as reflected signals may affect signal strength up or down.
* Polarization and coverage pattern, as lobes and nulls are inevitable.
The quantities I am really looking for are:
* Maximum usable range in free air and best conditions.
* Data rate in those conditions.
* Attinuation due to each intervening wall or ceiling on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.
With this information I might better evaluate which solution is best for a particular situation.
I'm sure that I'm not the o only one who has questions. So let me ask:
1. From a distance of n feet means that the distance from the router and device is only n feet? Why put an extender 5 feet from the router?
2. I don't know if the link to how you tested is meaningful. How far away from the extender were your wireless devices? If your extender is only 5 feet away from your router who is to say that the PC 's wireless device won't differ and add a variable to the equation that is not accounted for?
3. Line of site, walls? If y your office is 50 feet as you described how did you test 75 feet?
LOL zodiacfml!! man that was a good one hly shit. haha fuck, thats actually a really mean troll when i think about it though because the people that are beginners might take you seriously and actually buy a wifi router and will be really confused when they have to run an ethernet cable to it... but pretty good joke nonetheless i guess
