I have been lumbered with providing wireless access for a pop up ice rink, Its in the middle of a flat piece of grass land, The broadband comes into a shed on the edge of the park approx 200m away.
Most of the infrastructure was already installed as the rink was run by another company last year, so i know it was working 12 months ago,
As it stand I have a working broadband connection which I have tested, I have a netgear wireless router (WGR614v7) -this was already here so can replace if needed.
The previous company installed an antenna on the roof of the shed, there is a cable leading down to a plug for an ethernet cable, there is an engenius NPE-4818 which should provide power up to the antenna.
I have the ethernet cable from the router plugged into the 'Network' port in the NPE and then an ethernet cable running from the ap/bridge port to the antenna jack.
Now for some reason I am not getting any signal from the antenna on the roof. I wondered if there was anyway I could troubleshoot the antenna (Maybe ping it somehow to see if its active and powered up) or there was an issue with the way I have it setup,
If there isn't I'm guessing it will be easier just to buy a new one. Can anyone recommend a good antenna setup?
