This is probably a simple question for you all but I couldn’t find the answer in the manual fully confirming this.
Is it possible to configure the BR1 MAX MK2 to utilize the WiFi antenna connections in the following manner :
I’d like to add an external high gain wide band WiFi antenna (2.4GHz/5.1GHz) to a boat hardtop and connect it to one SMA connection (Radio A) on the unit. With the intention for this to ONLY be associated with the WiFi WAN ashore via either bands depending on the connection ashore being made. I do not wish to utilize any simultaneous or fail over frequency/band features.
I’d then like to use the remaining SMA connection (Radio B), with the standard antenna it’s shipped with, to act as the WAP running two networks on 2.4GHz & 5.1GHz simultaneously. Utilizing the connection on Radio A.
I was concerned that the external antenna might also be associated with handling clients onboard, and with the antenna being a high gain antenna. The likelihood is they would be in a bind spot outside the antennas directional pattern.
Radio A - Only WAN traffic. (no clients)
Radio B - Only LAN traffic.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
