Question on extender

Post by oldjarhead46 » 29 Mar 2016, 18:24

Hi,
I have a Linksys router modified w/DD-WRT . It works great. My question is does it make any difference to range if router antenna's are horizontal or vertical?
Thanks

Hello,

yes it will make a difference. If your router has one antenna it may be the best to arrange it straight up and if your router has two antenna the best placement is to have one vertical and the other horizontal.

Yes, because flying with waypoints is not a feature of the connection but the GPS Recorder.
