Hi I have a directional antenna installed along with an alfa usb card and an old router running Openwrt in order to get wifi from a public hotspot (around 120m from my house) and repeat it in my house. The connection is not too bad, around 8-10 Mbps down and 1Mbps up, but I have problems with bufferbloat because I share bandwith with flatmates (around 8 devices connected) so for a smooth connection I need to throtle to 2Mbps.
I think I have two problems:
Too many connections between antenna and router (alfa card and usb connection)
Quite old and weak router
Do you think would be possible to quit one antenna to GL-AR300M-Ext and connect the directional antenna (has an SMA connector) there? I guess that if both antennas of GL-AR300M work together this won’t be possible… Do you have any other product that would fit my needs, considering that I can only use 2.4GHz?
