I have VIM3L which I am trying use as my wifi router
seems like the WiFi signal is pretty poor so I bought an 8dbi antenna. on aliexpress but its seems like no improvement on this.
I am using 30W adaptive charger so i don’t think its a power issue.
As in WiFi signal do you mean the WiFi range ?
Try placing it in the air off the ground (on the table or something), without obstructions (Metal objects can “shield” the RF), if you can select the WiFi band to connect to, then connect to the 2.4GHz band…
I remember getting good and proper signal quality even at about 30m away… outdoors away from things that might block the signal using stock Khadas antennas…
Here I think the law is, if the network is open and unsecured, you can use it. Of course, using it for criminal reasons is still unlawful. It is just one of the many reasons I recommend to all of my family and contacts, SECURE YOUR NETWORK!!!
One of the local ISPs installs their user’s equipment open…that’s a shame.
No less than 3 I can see are open within 250m from here on our road. All residences I presume. You may be giving people too much credit. Sometimes common knowledge is not all that common at all.
Residence or Starbucks, if it is open it is open.
