Increasing Wi-Fi SNR with NLoS - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

How can I figure out what type of antenna (e.g. omni, Yagi, parabolic, etc) I should use to increase my SNR to an 802.11n router signal to which I do not have line of sight? A straight line running between the antennas would run through approximately 30 m of interior construction. With a 1 dBi antenna the noise is at about -92 dB while the signal can range between -70 dB down to -90 dB and the link is frequently lost. How can I figure out how much gain on my antenna would be appropriate, 6 dBi, 12 dBi, 15 dBi, and what pattern would be appropriate?

I’m an EE but I have no RF experience and I'm looking to learn more about how to make such decisions.

I would greatly appreciate your advice or any references or tutorials you can point me to.

Thank you!

Mateja

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
