Does anyone know what kind of range should be expected in reality for mesh devices in a residential house? I know the FAQ says “10s of meters” and “similar to bluetooth” but thats not very specific.
I’m asking because I’ve got 10 xenons scattered about my house, and every one of them except the one acting as a gateway on an ethernet featherwing warns me “The device is disconnecting from the Particle Cloud too frequently.” - some have disconnect counts in the hundreds.
I was thinking about putting an external antenna on the gateway and also one device per floor. Do you think this would help? I found this U.FL 2.4ghz antenna, any reason I shouldn’t order a few to try?
