Q>,Distance between WNAP-6305s is only 150 ft, what TX power do you recommend?
-->Start from 50% of TX power, and then 25% or 75% according to the test result of 50% TX Power.

Q>If you ensure your IP-CAM is using multicast, you must replace the WNAP-6305 with the WNAP-7300 to prevent broadcast storm.
--> AVS IP cam & NVR Pro use omnicast

Q> He keep connecting FSD-804PS to another FSD-804 PS up to 10 in a row(it is called daisy chain connection). What is the maximum number of FSD-804PS he can daisy chain?
--> Max 10

Q>Betwenn WNAP-6305 and 7300 , which one is better for surveillance purpose?
-->For surveillance, it’s better to use 5GHz AP to prevent much interference from 2.4GH equipments. The WNAP-7300 is 300Mbps wireless AP, which has more wireless bandwidth than the WNAP-6305 150Mbps wireless AP.

Q>What is the data rate (bandwidth) of WNAP-6305& 7300 in real world?
WNAP-6305 @ 4Km : 48Mbps.
WNAP-7300 @ 5Km : 88Mbps.

Q>DATA RATE of WNAP-6305 is 150Mbit in the spec and channel bandwidth is 20/40 from below picture.
I saw 20/40 in the menu and thought maximum data rate is 40Mbit, which is totally wrong.

-> To reach the 802.11n’s max. wireless speed, you need to double the channel width from 20MHz (802.11bg) to 40MHz (802.11n), then it will be able to extend the theoretical data rate up to 150Mbps. The 40MHz channel width is proposed in the 802.11n's standard.
In the other word, a wider channel can allow more data packet pass through than the narrow channel, that why in the theory of 802.11n, we can get the wireless speed up to 150Mbps with the 1T1R's design.
You can refer to the wiki for the detail description of wifi channel:
