WIRING LARGE BUILDING FOR WI-FI 10/17/2014

TO STREAM VIDEO YOU NEED ~300MBPS THROUGHPUT.

IF USING COAX CABLE SEE COAX CABLE SIGNAL LOSS IN WI-FI SYSTEMS.

5 GHZ YAGI ANTENNAS ARE HARD TO COME BY.  IF USING A YAGI CONSIDER USING AN ANTENNA ROTATOR.   POWER OVER ETHERNET (POE) IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO WIRE OVER 1500 SQ.FT.  I SAY PROBABLY BECAUSE I HAVE NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH IT.  CAT5 CABLE IS CHEAP, THE SIGNAL DOES NOT DEGRADE AS MUCH IN LONG RUNS, BUT IS THE ANTENNA GOING TO CAPTURE ENOUGH SIGNAL?

POWER OVER ETHERNET (POE):
$59 2.4 300MBPS POE.   $115  2.4 150MBPS POE$47 2.4 150MBPS POE   $66 2.4 300MBPS POE.   $80 2.4 300MBPS POE.   $44 2.4 150MBPS  CF-E214N  POE.   $43 300Mbps INTERIOR  POE

WIFI CABLE CONNECTOR IMAGES:  EVERYBODY CALLS THE CONNECTORS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  IT IS BEST TO SEE A CLOSE-UP PIC OF THE CONNECTORS ON YOUR CABLE, ADAPTER AND ANTENNA.

USE A 3’ USB EXTENSION CABLE TO CONNECT THE ADAPTER TO LAPTOP IF ONE IS NOT INCLUDED.

15 FEET IS THE MAXIMUM LENGTH A USB CABLE CAN FUNCTION AT 100%.  BE CAREFUL OF CLAIMS OF 1000Mw POWER OUTPUT ON USB WIFI ADAPTERS.  LOOK FOR DUAL ANTENNAS ON 300MBPS SYSTEMS.  USE A MAST TO RAISE THE ANTENNA.  WHILE NOT LINE OF SIGHT, THE MORE LINE OF SIGHT THE MORE THROUGHPUT.  MANY DEVICES GENERATE RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) SIGNALS AROUND 2.4GHZ, Microwave ovens, cordless phones, CORDLESS HEADSETS, Bluetooth devices, wireless video cameras, outdoor microwave links, wireless game controllers, Zigbee devices, FAULTY fluorescent light BALLASTS, WiMAX devices, Motion detectors for lighting control, and even bad electrical connections.  THEY CAN INTERFERE WITH YOUR WI-FI.
