Model: WBS210
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 2.1.12 Build 20180202 Rel. 58819 (4555)

hi

 

I had a Delibrant DLB APC 2Mi Accesspoint in use with one normal Omni-Antenna (in the near aeria) and a Directional-Antenna TL-ANT2409A (for a Repeater 25m in front)

 

this DLB APC is defect (thunderstrom) and now I have changed this Accesspoint with a WBS210

 

my question now is, what will be happen, when I use this WBS210 with this two mentioned antenne ?

 

thank you for any informations

 

regards Max

It would not be able to use 2x2 MIMO if you use an omnidirectional and a directional antenna at the same time. You also can set the antenna gain only for both antennas at once, so you would have to set the bigger value of their antenna gain for both antennas. It probably still works to some extent, but you won't reach full throughput.

 

For a distance of just 25m I would recommend to try the new TL-ANT2410MO omnidirectional antenna for the WBS210. Should work fine as long as the repeater in front of it has free line of sight (and probably also if used indoor). I could achieve very good results over short distances when I did test this antenna with my WBS210. It's specially designed for the WBS210, but might not be available in every country due to regulations.

 

BTW: there is an own forum for Pharos-related questions here.

hi

 

thank you for your replay

 

now I can understand, also I have readed the posts in your mentioned link (WSB210 with two omni-antenna)

 

when I was looking for a new Accesspoint, I was searching a device with 2 antenna connectors and and did not think twice about MIMO

 

but my question now is, what is the advantage of MIMO, if the partner-device have only two normal omni-antennas (enGenius ERB9260)

 

in the network there are two enGenius ERB9260, the first as "Repeater" and the second as "Bridge"

on both devices connects LAN-side a PLC (Siemens LOGO!) and this two devices workind with 802.11b, because the interface of the PLC have max. 10Mb/s 

the Repeater should give access to the PLC via the network (Accesspoint WSB210)

 

thanks agin

Max

You're right, in this case MIMO doesn't have any advantage. Else it would speed up the connection, but it needs a) a WBS or CPE on the remote side and b) 802.11n mode to successfully establish a MIMO link. So, I would just try to use those antennas as you planned (I did so wiith a WBS210, too, and it did work fine).

thank you for your replay, I have had the same thought further I have reduced the Antenna Transmit Power from 20 to 13dBm yes it's works fine but one in point I'm not satisfied, in the intranet I have good performance but for Internet (Accesspoint-Modem-Router-DSL) it have a lot of longer interrupts, on the other side via Modem-Router directly there are best performance! ??? the Accesspoint is connected via cable on the Modem-Router TPL-Archer2600 and not in the DHCP-Range

So you have an Archer with omni antennas on the remote site? For directional links always a pair of the same antennas and Pharos devices are recommended. If you use omni antennas at the remote site, a directional antenna at the local site can not perform at its maximum performance (well, it's a little better than an omni, but not at its maximum). That's why I stopped experimenting with a TL-ANT2424B, which now are for sale on ebay, one even still unboxed.

no, the Archer-WLAN is for inside/inhouse the signal outside is lower than 60dBm - so for outside there is the WBS210 

but this is probaly the bad solution, on the WBS210 is one directional-antenna TL_ANT2409A, specialy for the Repeater (enGenius ERB9260) 25m in front,

(ok it is not a excellent solution, but unfortunally the repeater has not antenna-connectors, yes there it must be a second WSB210)

and to serve the near enviroment of outside the building the second Output of the WSB210 is connected with a omnidirectional antenna,

but in the meantime I think it works not so bad...

Yes, it could work this way. We could even connect successfully to a cheap WRT54GL with HGA-7T omni antennas behind a window (!) using the TL-ANT2424B over a distance of 542 meters. So, similar setups can work, albeit at reduced bandwidth rates only. But if this fits for you then it's absolutely o.k. to use the antennas you already have.
