I’m currently using a few cc2531 sticks as routers and tbh I’m not that happy with the range.
(one is out of box, the other has 2.4GHz antenna hack)
Can anyone recommend any standalone routers that have good/better range?
What about Ikea signal extenders? They are cheap at £7 each (inc usb charger)
I am also taking other approach to reduce 2.4ghz interference.
Since I currently have wifi and 3 zigbee networks (z2m, hue and linktap for irrigation) I have a lot of potential interference.
I am considering to migrate my hue bulbs to z2m now it supports groups and binding.
Also making sure for as much channel separation between wifi and z2m zigbee channels.
