I’m thinking about buying the Mudi but I have a question regarding the WiFi sensitivity in repeater mode.
I actually have a Huawei 4G mobile hotspot that have a WiFi repeater function, but the sensitivity is quite bad. At the same spot where the Huawei mobile WiFi would be unstable and have very low throughout on the repeated signal, a 20 euro tp link repeater had a stable 20 Mbps output. On my phone, the connection would also be stable but at a lower rate of about 12 Mbps.
Do you know if the Mudi would be more like the Huawei, the phone or the tp link repeater ?
This sounds like a not so important question, but in an environment where you want to repeat a low WiFi signal, this makes all the difference.
I have to say WiFi sensitivity on 2.4 GHz is really good, I’m able to repeat 80/85dbm networks with good stability and bitrates. I’d say it is almost as good as the TP-Link.
On the 5Ghz it is just okay, it works well but réception is lower than on my phone or laptop, you can’t repeat really low networks.
I don’t have problem with LTE reception either, even though I read people had some problems with that. I tried it in my home at a place where the reception is bad, and the Mudi still stays connected, I think it’s on par with any good phone.
Only issue I have is that I don’t know if LTE-A is working (I have the cat6). At a spot where my phone gives me 50mbps, the Mudi only gives me 15. When I check the cell status, I see that it is connected to the 700mhz band, where my phone says it is connected to 700+1800. How can I check that the module is using LTE-A ?
