d stands for distance, unit km
f stands for frequency, unit MHz
If the 5180MHz radio system between 20km, the FSPL is
the base station Tx power 27dBm+ the antenna gain 17 dBi + the CPE's gain 25dBm - 132.74= -63.74 dBm
And that's the value in theory. In fact there is so much latency.
So the signal strength will less than -63.74dBm.

Check the version of WiController and the version OS of firmware.
The last version is 1.0.17 for Wicontroller.
1.0.0314 for 11n OS firmware
1.0.0019 for 11ac OS firmware
When using 1.0.10 Wicontroller there is a little compatibility issue.
So download the last version of firmware and software on our website.
TDMA means Time Division Multiple Access. It allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different time slots. The users transmit in rapid succession, one after the other, each using its own time slot. WiD means Wis-networks own protocol, when using it only Wis device's can connect with each other.
It can be used when PtMP. For example, when there is a main base station and 30 station. If you enable the WiD TDMA, each station can get a time slot from base station. So they can get same time slot and not influence each other.
Users are usually misunderstanding about how long can the base station be. Users usually think by using our base station the phones and laptops can connect with it even 5-10km. That is wrong, nobody can make that.
Wi-Fi is a duplex transmission system. No matter what scenes, the base station usually have a high-output power with a high-gain antenna. So the signal can transmit so long even 50-60km. But as we say Wi-Fi is a duplex system, the base station need a feedback when the signal out. And the phones and laptops all are low-power 7-8dBm with low-gain antenna 0-2dBi. When the distance about 150m, the base station can't receive the feedback signal from the phones and laptops. So the distance is limited by the phones and laptops. But how to make a long distance communication? Using our device as station to magnify the signal from the phones and laptops, and they will connect with the main base station even 60km.
We suggest use iperf or ix chariot to test the TCP/UDP throughput, instead of the internal speedtest tool. The internal tool can only provide you very rough result. The test tool you can download from Internet or simply ask our support team to provide it to you. A typical test network would be like this
There are two conditions
1) If you test indoor, you should turn down the tx power of both radios, and check the rx power/RSSI of the station side, make it at the -35~-55dBm/40~60dB. Then the throughput would be better.
2) If in outdoor condition, the distance setting is very important. If the range is more than 3km, you should input the real distance in radio-advanced setting, otherwise the latency and throughput would be poor.
The UBNT and Mikrotiks devices have their own TDMA protocol, if you need to connect Wisnetworks product with them, you should disable the TDMA function on their radio.
On another hand, if you enable the WiD TDMA of our device, the UBNT and Mikrotiks devices can't be connected too.
1. Log in the web interface and go to Radio page.
2. Click Advanced Wireless Settings label
3. Now you can see the WiD TDMA options
a) Check the WiD TDMA to enable this function
b) Input the number 10-90 to define the TDMA priority of the device
c) If the device work as a base station, check the Compatible check-box to allow other client which doesn't feature WiD TDMA to get connected
d) If the device work as a base station, check the Force check-box to only allow Wisnetworks devices to be connected
1. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the POE port of the provided PoE DC Adapter and the other end of the Ethernet cable to the LAN port of the device. Then, connect the LAN port of the PoE DC Adapter to a PC or switch using another Ethernet cable. Finally, plug the PoE DC Adapter into a standard electrical wall socket.
2. After the device is powered on, set your computer's wired network with static IP of 192.168.1.x (x should be any one of 100~254, such as 192.168.1.100), then open your browser and go to 192.168.1.2 and input username admin and password admin, then you can see the configuration web page.
1. After login the web interface, go to Wireless page, press scan
wait for several seconds you can see the base station list, choose your base station and press the ssid
back to the wireless page, press 'Apply' and 'Save'.
2. Go to Network page, choose WISP mode, and fill in the information provided by your WISP.
3. Check you Internet status and done.
1. After login the web interface, go to Radio page, choose Access Point Mode, and press Apply
then press Save after the notice info coming out.
2. Go to Wireless page, choose Enable at Wireless Availability , and press Apply & Save after finishing the SSID and encryption settings.
3. Use a client/station connecting to the Access Point and test the link.
