Re: Possible range between McModule - McGateway

I would also be interested in how we can increase the range of the McGateway with an external Antenna (hack). Currently the range is limited to 5 - 10 meters with one "small" wall in between. I did some testing and by moving the McGateway just a couple of cm's can make already a big difference in the RSSI values (changes of +/- 10 dB)

On the internet there are some hacks with BT dongles. They cut-off the internal Antenna and add a copper wire of 3 or 12 cm's. Would that als work for the McGateway?
