Re: [Help Me] DIR-815
Most DIR series routers have about the same range. Mostly out putting about 1 mili watt on the antenna.
Your SSID names need to be different on between the 2.4 and 5Ghz radios, they can be similar however do need to differ.
You're right Bimmer. The signal from the new router is no better. In fact, it's not as good in places because I wasn't as careful adjusting the antenna reflectors I'm using.
I also notice that all the traffic has been on the 2.4GHz band and nothing on 5GHz, so I will have to go back and assign them different names to choose between "media" and "data". I did read that 2.4GHz is better for range, though, so I guess I won't gain any on 5GHz.
