I just wish the implementation were up to the quality of the pix. My line of sight between the two (single-antenna) DWL-900AP+'s passes through one floor, one hallway wall, and two room walls at a 3D oblique angle (maybe about 5'x6'x15'). Resulting data rates:
1. with reflector - 2.02 Mb/s (megabit per second)
2. without reflector - 2.13 Mb/s
3. reflector backwards - 2.06 Mb/s
4. removed antenna - 1.74 Mb/s
Evidently, the situation has so much multipath, I'd be better off just walking around with a field strength meter to find a good site. (I guess this is what they mean by "hot-spot"!)
At one point I removed the antenna and covered the DWL with the dog's stainless steel waterdish. The whole thing was sitting on top of my steel-case computer with just path to air under both sides of the dish. I was still able to stream audio!
IIRC, the DWL actually does have a second internal antenna for diversity. It may have been ignoring my beautiful parabola at some points in the experiment.

Hey, way cool pic, ikarus. Where'd you get it??
You ... well... I did not read the sig till I posted.
