Access point in shed

  • 1.  Access point in shed

    We’ve got 3 AP11 in our house, but now i want to add WiFi to our (large) garden. Now we have a shed with a concrete floor with roof, power and ventilation, so the question if we can place a AP11 on the inside.

    Also we do not have a RJ45 connection there, so it will be using the mesh connection. Does the inside AP11, to which the outside AP is connected, also suffer from the performance impact?

    Kind Regards

    @Ankh Depending on the distance from the shed to the AP's inside the house and what the shed is made of may not get you the signal coverage to have a good mesh and could impact performance.

    From one of the APs to the shed it is around 16-20 meters.

    I've checked with inssider. The shed door has a glass and small metal splints (so i checked with the door open and closed).
    The rest of the shed is made with normal wood.

    @Ankh The signal strength is not optimal and may be intermittent and throughput may become an issue.
