Our RG316 Flexible Coax Cable FEP Jacket is in-stock or assembled at our ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities in Texa\ s. If you used RG316 cable extension (common for 2.4Ghz extension), you will have poor signal at the other end. There is simply too much loss. Going with an attenuation of 315db per 100m, I would expect 15.75db loss at 5m. This will cripple your speeds. I do remember reading somewhere that RG405 cable was better suited for 5Ghz network.
