is EAP 225 (Omada AC1350) the same as EAP 245 in 60 deg range and coverage radius of 15m?

is EAP 225 (Omada AC1350) the same as EAP 245 in 74 deg range and coverage radius of 15m?
I got information from here
 

The building I am installing is a old split level home and the modem is in the bottom floor with runs only going to the bottom 2 floors.
They do not want to drill holes and do more runs through the building.
Luckily the height of the house is only 24ft. 85 ft long. 30 ft wide.
I am thinking of having the AP on top of a desk/shelf pointing upwards.
Depending on the position I can possibly cover the whole house with 1 AP

Hi I can only speak from having the AP on the top floor pointing down, but theoretically this should be the same result. I did have a 225 and upgraded to a 245 about 6months ago for new laptop that could support the faster speeds.

 

The office im in currently is roughly 55 degree angle from the AP (2x small offices across, one floor down) and the signal strength is good overall coming in at -60 to 65db on average. Just ran a throughput test to the NAS and getting ~650mbps (80MB per sec) or so using a 3x3 AC1800 intel card.

 

I did notice a very small drop in retries using the 2x2 (AC1200) laptops when I upgraded from the 225 to 245 but I put this down to the extra aerial in the 245, being honest the difference was marginal at best.

 

I currently have 22 STAs attached to the device with no issues reported. From that very rudimentary testing I would say yes the signal strength, range is the same and you will notice no real difference. However the extra aerial on the 245 will help on higher volume STAs and may reduce the retries slightly if this is a concern.
