Are there any data sheets or useful information on the 4 antenna which could be shared. For example, the dBi for the antenna and what each antenna is used for.
The reason I ask,
-I'm using the WA1201 in repeater mode with both wired and wireless clients connected.
-My main AP/router is on the ground floor
-My WA1201 repeater is on the first floor.
-There is an approximately 45degree vertical angle between my main AP and the WA1201 in repeater mode.
I understand the higher the antenna dBi, the more directional it becomes in the vertical plane. This suggests that for the best connection between my main wifi router and the WA1201, at least some of the antenna on my WA1201 should be positioned at a 45 degree angle towards the main AP. But then for the clients on the 1st floor, some WA1201 antenna should be vertical, so the signal radiates horizontally across the 1st floor.
so my question, of the 4 antenna on the WA1201, when in repeater mode, which antenna are better angled in the direction of the main AP/router, which are better in the same plane as the clients?
My secondary question, what differences does antenna position make in other modes, for example if I configure the WA1201 in the following, how is each antenna used?
should I have some antenna pointing vertically, and some at a 45 degree angle or horizontally? This is for coverage over two floors of a building.
I have an engineering background so happy to read technical data sheets if available, but currently I can find no information on the antenna of the WA1201 so I am left with trial and error which has a lot of combinations with 4 antenna. If we take 3 positions, vertical, horizontal and 45 degrees, that is 64 different combinations to test! If I can reduce that with some information from you, that will be most helpful.
