I have a question about the gain specs for the AP's antenna.
Can anyone explain the performance difference and significance
between these two gain specs, taken from the product's datasheets:
MR20: Integrated omni-directional antennae (5.6 dBi gain at 2.4 GHz, 5.3 dBi gain at 5 GHz)
MR33: Integrated omni-directional antennas (3.8 dBi gain at 2.4 GHz, 3.9 dBi gain at 5 GHz)
My understanding is that the MR33 is a higher grade unit than the MR20, yet the MR20 has the higher
gain spec. To a novice like myself, this appears to say the MR20 will perform better when transmitting
Here below is their antenna patterns, and they both seems very similar which is good.
+1 to @NolanHerring . The third scanning radio of the MR33 makes it a much more capable access points, especially when it comes to dealing with issues in the RF environment.
+1 for MR33 and third radio doing "autoRF", much better experience compared to "opportunistic auto RF" with client serving radio.
