True.. If you'd like we can continue offline.  I will add one further comment: multiple antennas are typically MIMO (multiple input multiple output), which is cool unless your endpoint device does not support it.  Which wifi cameras likely don't.

Sounds like your situation would benefit from a pair of semi-directional antennas.  Back before we moved I had an Ubiquiti out in the barn as 'chicken-overwatch' but now I use the same one to upload static images to Wunderground via a cron ftp job on an Ubuntu vm.

Like my ubiquiti cam you *might* have luck browsing the cameras file structure.  I.e. Im able to ssh into my camera and pull those static images from a specific dir.. from what I read other models you could pull streams via  VLC and write them to a video file locally.

At 2.5 GHZ antennas are a trade off between some directional gain and transmission line loss and they are one more component to deal with,  °and these routers each have three, I'm not sure how they are arranged functionally? I think the receivers are the critical element. Antennas will be a last resort.

I have two other cameras in other locations, at least five years old now, poor quality but still working and displaying on VLC.

This is not strictly Fedora so I think any further communication should be off list or we will hear about the ground rules, etc.
