We've put a lot of extra metal shelving in our warehouse and in the middle between two APX740s there is a bit of a dead zone.
Is there anyway to boost the power output of the APs? (Using Sophos UTM 9.708). I have 'TX Power 5 GHz' set to 100% in Advance, so I'm guessing the answer is no!
Should I get external antennas for them?
Thanks in advance,
Hi James, not aware you can boost them any further and out of the box you cant add antennas to them, they are sealed. I've yet to open one up and see if they can be soldered but you will invalidate your warranty on them.
the outdoor models have external antenna support. probably a good choice for cold/hot and dusty warehouses.
The APX outdoor model only supports Sophos Central Wireless and not UTM, XG or XGS solutions just to clarify.
true, sorry, I missed that
Just an outside-of-the-box question: Is it possible to move them closer together? That is, are they actually closer to the edges than they need to be for good edge coverage?
