| | Enh202 Installed and working at 3.1 KM Range
I bought 4 of these suckers to expand my network to a home 3.1 KM away. Direct line of site I left on full power and getting a consistant -76 dBm siginal at this range. Noise is -95 dbm so just under 20 SNR. Getting 50 Mbps at this range like I said radio's on max. Works great, 2-3ms ping.
2nd pair shoots 1000 feet through a single apple tree left them idled back to 20 dBm gain each getting nice -60 dBm siginal here.
As for using as a access point for your machines I just went with a basic indoor rubber duck special Dlink and used the Engenious radios for bridging only. I can confirm what keenanj said just set yours to Access Point mode and get it on the network with a static IP if you can (easy to administer). Make sure something on your Lan is doing DHCP like your gateway. the 202 just works like a basic access point with killer siginal. Just keep your associated clients within their range because the 202 is way stronger than a typical wireless adapter in a laptop so only as good as your weakest link.
