I would like to do this on a GL-AR300M16-EXT; except that I would like to have the left LED brightness correspond to left antenna received signal strength, and right LED to right antenna.
If I put a Λ shaped plate between the antennae, it would attenuate signals from behind, and from the opposite side. I would have a WiFi direction finder. Turn in the direction of the brighter LED until both are equal brightness. The Λ is pointing in the direction of the signal.
Unfortunately rssi comes from wlan0 which (I think) represents the combined signal strength of both antennae. Is there any way to break out individual values?
Failing that, is there any other hardware that can be used to accomplish this?
Perhaps mounting 2 independent WiFi radios (GL-AR150) next to each other?
However, whenever I do that they interfere with each other causing them to alternately drop the connection.
Perhaps the UARTS could be connected together to schedule transmissions and work cooperatively?
Maybe 2 GL-USB150 connected to the same host or USB hub, could be synchronized by software on the host.
Not sure which approach is best.
Would love to hear ideas.
