Re: Antenna for bullet 5

You need an omnidirectional antenna tuned for the bandwidth used by IEEE 802.11a - 5 GHz, not 2.4 GHz. You might be able to find a dual-band antenna which can be resonant for both bands.

Why the Bullet 5 and not the Bullet 2? 5 GHz WiFi networks are few and far between right now. That being said, I wish Ubiquiti made a dual-band 2/5 model of the Bullet...

Re: Antenna for bullet 5

It was cheap at 20 bucks. I'll give it a go and if no luck with it I'll find me something else.
Thanks for the heads up
