Increase Mac Mini’s ad-hoc WiFi range
Hello. I have an early 2009 Mac Mini at my cottage to play media through.
FYI - This is a strictly offline setup. No router, no ISP.
I often use the ad-how or “create network” option so I can stream to another Mac. The main issue I’ve encountered is Range. Using WiFi scan option on the airport utility iOS app, the RSSI of the ad-hoc network is -61. I’m only 6ft away with no obstructions. I know at -65 you can start dropping packets. I tested several channels including 5 GHz ones and there is no difference.
So is there a better solution? A better internal WiFi NIC? A nativity supported USB adapter (specifying native support because I’ve read they all use separate drivers and utilities to work.
I don’t care what it is as long as I can create a reliable WiFi ad-hoc network.
