Thats the way to go. Only one variable for each test.Good test !
Only lack testing stock unmodified Xiaomi Wifi Extender too. That way you will check whether external antennas are an improvement or not
That's the reason I bought a second Wifi Extender I will let unmodified. My plan is doing a face-to-face test, one against the other, same place, same conditions.
My antennas are approx 110mm seperate. Not exact I know but I didn’t even think about antenna separation when I built it.@ph2t,
I bought this plastic box for mounting antennas and Xiaomi repeater: https://www.amazon.com/Velleman-WCAH2851-Black-Plastic-160X95X55mm/dp/B000LQGC3M
As box is 160 cm long that's maximum possible distance between antenna mounts.
I read Xiaomi Repeater uses MIMO antenna array tecnology MIMO - Wikipedia
But I'm not sure what's the best distance between antenna mounts. As MIMO based on multiple paths and de-correlated signals It seem wider distance, best performance, but should it be multiplier/divider WIFI 2.4 Ghz wavelength (122.45 milimeters) ?
What distance did you use ?
Any other idea is wellcome.
