Looking for some input. When we bought our
wireless company we inherited a hotspot at a marina. We had to
manually put in mac addresses in the AP’s in the beginning. It
was brutal. So few years ago I found Chillifire.net and
started using them with custom firmware for Rocket M2.
It really a lot of trouble because is there
is issue they are in New Zealand so we might be down or having
issues for couple days. Since its custom firmware I cant get
Anyway fast forward to now. I was wondering
what some of you are using at marinas? Ultimately this place
doesn’t bring in much money as there is only a couple handfuls
of customers that are there all the time. So I don’t want to
spend a ton.
My other issue is coverage. That’s my
biggest complaint there now. We have 1 AP on each covered
dock. I have a total of 5 2.4 Aps in a small area and noise is
an issue as well.
Have any of you tried the Outdoor Unifi
with hotspot? If so how are your results?
They are only setup to get 4Mb each
I will attach a crude map of what it looks
like as well.
We have a Rocket M5 at tower with sector.
Each dock currently has a loco m5 feeding it. Rocket M2 with
UBNT Omni on the dock. We also tried UBNT Sector and shot
straight down dock but it didn’t help much really. Docks all
have metal roof.
