Hi All, I’m using the ar750s in extender mode as a bridge for a remote IP camera. I have a wired IP camera plugged into the ar750s that bridges to another WiFi access point. I can only keep the connection alive for about an hour and a half if I connect using 2.4GHz. If I connect via 5GHz it seems to keep the connection alive.
I have modified the ar750s to use external SMA connectors for larger antennas. That’s a simple process since the main board of ar750s used u.fl connectors for the current antennas. I just removed those and added u.fl to SMA cables and that worked well for turning the ar750s into a bridge with external antennas.
I’ve tried the following firmware versions with no success at keeping the 2.4GHz connection alive very long:
I need to use 2.4GHz because that’s the frequency of my expensive parabolic antenna. Right now I’m testing the hardware in my house close to the WiFi access point using smaller monopile antennas. I can’t get that connection at 2.4GHz to stay alive. Once it drops I can no longer see the IP cam on my network.
I thought this would be an easy thing to do with the ar750s but I’m seeing that’s not the case.
Any thoughts on how I can get this working on 2.4GHz extender mode?
