To guide you on the ((purchase of WiFi outdoor antenna)) ? We have made this tutorial and basic guide with a comparison of the best teams, brands, prices and tips for use. In the market there are many WiFi equipment with very different characteristics in terms of frequency of 2, 4Ghz or 5GHz, type of antennas, omnidirectional or directional and brands, so it is possible that you spend a lot of money on an expensive equipment that is not suitable for the US Or concrete you’re going to give him. Here you are going to give all the keys and if you have doubts or need a tip you can contact directly with our WiFi consultants. ?
➤ What frequency do I choose to install a long-range outdoor WiFi antenna
To be able to answer this frequent question in relation to the two WiFi frequencies that are used at the present time we consulted to the main manufacturers of WiFi antennas like TP-Link Ubiquiti and Alfa Network.
All manufacturers agree that it is better to buy antennas of 2, 4ghz par longer distance, but in middle distances, if there is a real problem of saturation of WiFi networks and interferences, it may be more useful the frequency of 5GHz.
“The main difference between the wireless frequencies of 2.4 GHz and 5GHz is the range since the frequency of 2.4 GHz is able to reach farther than the frequency of 5GHz. This is the result of the basic characteristics that the waves attenuate much faster at higher frequencies. So if you’re most concerned about coverage, you should select 2.4 GHz instead of 5GHz. ”
The frequency of 2, 4Ghz has few channels and with a very small range, so they overlap, in theory a router that transmits by Channel 1, and another that transmits by Channel 2 if they are close, suppose to less than 50 meters, cause partial interferences by channel are successive and total if they are by the same channel. The frequency of 5GHz has 23 channels which do not overlap therefore the interferences disappear. Nearby WiFi equipment adds noise to the device that can slow down the transmission speed on the WiFi network.
An unknown aspect of the frequency of 5GHz is that the radar of military use is commonly of 5ghz all over the world, and in addition with very high transmitting powers, therefore all wireless networks of 5GHz could have some interference in the vicinity of Military barracks or bases. In fact many countries require that the 5GHZ teams should always transmit to a low and controlled power.
Ultimately the 5GHz frequency has a shorter range compared to 2.4 GHz. The old of 2, 4ghz have more equipment more transmitting and more interferences, but being short wave arrives much farther. There are millions of equipment transmitting to 2, 4Gz so in urban areas is saturated, but in rural areas or open field, 2, 4ghz is the frequency that farthest arrives. The use of 5GHz, is novel and still in 2019 there are very few computers transmitting to 5GHz.
➤ Outdoor WiFi antenna 2, 4Ghz
Here we will put a selection of the best equipment, and prices, to transmit WiFi long distance on the outside.
All of them are recommended for rural open-country areas with direct vision, without buildings or mountains along the way.
