Reposting from my original thread based on a suggestion in it to try my luck here since so many have this antenna;
My set up:
- 2.4ghz Parabolic Grid Antenna (N/Fem)
- 20ft LMR400 N/Male
- N/Fem:FME/Fem connector + Pigtail
I currently have my 2.4ghz Parabolic Grid antenna set up in a trial run indoors, facing towards the tower out of my window. The tower is about 1.8-2 miles away. The line of sight is obstructed by forest.
After adjusting it I can get a signal of around -96 to -97 (occasionally hit -94 but only for a second or two)
However the connection doesn't seem solid, it can jump from -96 to -102 every few seconds. I also notice I occasionally get a lag spike around 1000-2000 every minute or so while pinging google.
Testing it with online games makes it extremely laggy in game as well. When I don't use the antenna I can play the game fine with no lag spikes.
Without the antenna I get around -108 to -110 signal but it is much more stable than with the antenna hooked up.
Anyone else experience similar issues with this set up?
I am planning to mount it outside on the roof above this window -- Could a window (double glass) can really cause such issues with performance with this antenna? I haven't been able to deploy it outside to test due to bad weather.
Here is a shot of testing set up I am doing with the antenna; »i.imgur.com/cefdK.jpg
Thanks for any information you can provide
