WiFi access point install

Going to try out a directional dual band access point with a dual band router this year. This should improve the wireless at the campsite. All that's left is install the router, the AP is picking up everyone's wifi on the block!

It will work great! I used the same access point last year at Goshen and could lots of access points all around the fairgrounds. The main connection was a DSL line so may we say slow.

Your approach seems easier than this blog post involving an extendable mast, but perhaps that author had need to get to more distant points.

I've also considered mounting to the TV mast, since it already allows rotation. How did you route the ethernet cable inside?

@cousin_eddie: the blogger uses a TP-Link TL-WA5210G, available from a number of sources. Ubiquiti seems to be a popular brand, as well.

(I'm interested in this topic but haven't actually done it yet. I have no personal experience and know little more about it than I just wrote.)
