Hi,
Is it possible to send corrections from base to rovers through LAN(WiFi) instead of LR module? Our area is large and hilly(mostly NLOS) for LR linkage but we have WiFi mesh coverage with many access points.
Thanks…

Yes, it is possible. You just need to make sure that IP and PORT of base station is accessible to accept connections from other devices (no blocked router or firewall in the middle)

Thank you very much.
In this case should I remove the LR module and install WiFi module on the SimpleRTK2B I purchased before? Could you please get me to the compatible equipment from the store?
Best Regards…

this item can be used for both base and rover: https://www.ardusimple.com/product/wifi-ntrip-master/
Note that the challenge is in the router and/or access point, to open the ports to allow incoming connections on the WiFi of the base station.

Thank you very much
Both Base and Rovers will be in same WiFi network. Is that port issue still the case?
Best Regards…

It depends on your wifi configuration. In a traditional home wifi, no problem. But professional wifi networks are sometimes blocking certain connections.
