I've read that the standard range for an omnidirectional antenna is 50
meters which works out to ~164 feet. However, it's supposed to drop for
indoor settings and is susceptable to inteference from cordless phones,
microwaves, baby monitors, etc.
I'm trying to plan a community WLAN for a cohousing
(http://www.cohousing.org/) flat/townhouse community. Does anyone have
any guidelines on what the real world range is in a resdential
apartment/townhouse type of setting? A few further details, the size is
mixed brick, dry wall, frame (w/ cement siding), open space and green
roof design. The floors are also cement as I understand it. The flats
and some of the townhouses are up to 3 stories tall. The flats also has
a 3 story atrium, elevator, and stairwell if those need special
I've been kinda guesstimating ~75 feet range, but I'm trying to figure
out if that is a realistic guess or not.
