Both bridges are delivered pre-assembled and pre-configured so that anyone (including laymen) can connect 2 separate networks together. The standard configuration is optimised for a distance of 5km. For this distance a bandwidth of over 75 MBit nett can be achieved, which is comparable with a 100 Mbit cable connected network.
When installing, the so called Fresnel Zone should be taken into account. At 5km it is ca. 6m (that is the clearance in the middle of distance).
After installation you can change the following settings: - Web access data, password, eventually username, IP, SSID - Change WPA2 key - Change country (delivery setting is Germany) if needed
Before alignment you can increase the transmit power. In EU it should be decreaseed again. Transmit power and frequency ranges for wireless networks are uniformly set across EU-Countries.
To assist easy alignment of the antenna you have the facility to monitor the step less signal strength through the web interface.
