Sorry again for the super delayed response.

The cable length is FOR SURE the issue here. I suspect that if you get the modem/router closer with some LMR-400 cable, you will see a significant increase in speed. See the attached screenshot of cable losses for RG-6.

I would move the modem closer, and not change anything else first.

If you want, ping me directly via DM. I'm happy to take this conversation offline so I can provide you feed back about your setup a little more quickly.

Just thought I'd add that more than likely if you shorten this cable, your RSSI values will go from about -88 to about -70 which is almost a 100 times stronger signal.

Been raining non stop last few days, as soon as I get a sunny day I’m going to try to come up with a solution. I really like your setup!

I don’t want to just thow some stuff together I want a long term build with an exterior enclosure and run CAT6a (have it on hand) for the long runs.

The forum has been moved to a newer, faster, better server, and the forum software has been updated as well.

Hopefully this will result in a better experience for everyone, but in the coming days we may encounter some issues due to this major change.

As always, if you do encounter any problems, or have any questions, please do share these with us, and we will try to resolve any issues and help with any difficulties or new features.

I think this may have gotten put in this thread instead of in the announcements area by accident?
