Comparative Signal Rangesby Standard
Understanding 802.11n Amendments to the previous 802.11 standard Significant improvement to PHY layer transmission rate:
Forward Error CorrectingChannel bonding (20/40 MHz)Shorter GI (800/400 ns)Spatial multiplexing
Increase the MAC layer transfer rate to achieve over100 Mbps data throughput
MCS selected based on RF channel condition based on8 data rates, bonded channels, multiple spatial streams,guard intervals, and modulation types
MIMO (Multiple-In/Multiple Out)
Commonly referred to as smart antennatechnology
Sensitivity to fading is reduced by the spatialdiversity provided by multiple spatial paths.
Can provide better range in environmentswith multi-path issues
What About Range?Facts:Under the best conditions, many 802.11n routers deliver
throughput between 100 Mbps and 120 Mbps near therouter. However, speeds degrade quickly to about 45Mbps in the 300- to 600-foot range
The truth about the 802.11n specification is that it does notreally increase your wireless coverage area.
The same RF physics still apply, so the wireless connectionwill still drop out at the same signal levels.

Transmit Power Tx power is the amount of power a radio transmits
Generally, the longer the distance, the more powerneeded
High transmit power and receive sensitivity means:
greater coverage area with less access pointsor
long distance point-to-point links
The dBm is an absolute power measurement. m stands for milliwatt,which is the reference point.
0dbm is 1mW of power
1dbm is 1dB stronger than 0dBm or 1dB stronger than 1mW (1.3mW)-x dBm is power less than 1mW
0dBm = 1mW -3dBm = 0.5mW3dBm = 2mW 10dBm = 10mW -10dBm = 0.1mW
28dBm = 600mW (approx.) 30dBm = 1000mW or 1 wattDbm is
dBm to Milliwatts
Understanding dBi Dbi = The Db gain an antenna has as compared to a baseline
Isotropic radiator type antenna. Its simply a reference point.
The Isotropic radiator is a theoretical antenna where the signal istransmitted like a globe, equally in all directions.
Does not exist in real life. The design of any real antenna willcause the signal to favor one direction (even slightly) over another
The physical laws of the conservation of energy says if you gainpower in one direction, the other direction must be lost.
To have antenna gain therefore means the signal pattern ischanged to be favorable in a certain direction over another. Themore disproportional it is, the more gain is realized.
Calculating EIRP Dbm and Dbi You can add or subtract them!
Dbm is power while Dbi is antenna gain.
The total power (transmitter, losses of cable, gain of antenna etc.) is calledEIRP (Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power)
Example: 28dbm + (-2db coax loss) + 6dbi antenna = 34dbm EIRP.
FCC limits EIRP for Omni-directional signals to 36dbm for 2.4GHz and 5GHzWiFi
For directional signals, for every 3db of antenna gain beyond 6dbi, transmitterpower must be reduced by 1dbm.
26dbm +6dbi = 32dbm EIRP
Up to 600mW Tx Power N Mode The typical leading brand AP has a Tx power of 17dBm or 50mW

Multiple AP EnvironmentRF interference can be a factor.
FCC allows for only 3 non-overlapping channels between channels1-11 (2.412 2.473).
Channels are 22MHz wide but only separated by 5MHz
