Than to strengthen wi-fi on MikroTik hAP ac2?

Good afternoon. A MikroTik hAP ac2, serves as a switch (just amplifies the passing signal). There is a need to distribute wi-fi at this point, but the device is in a metal box (make sure the wires do not lie in the mind) - the signal is suppressed much, to use unreal.
Need a solution.

Questions:
  1. Is it possible to MikroTik hAP ac2 connect an external wi-fi antenna (without soldering)? what?
  2. If the antenna is not an option, what the access point will advise and why? for example, there are mAP lite, lite cAP , etc. What to choose for 1-5 users?

Well, try to Unscrew, if SMA really raspani, the adapter + sticks tipo https://mikrotik.com/product/ACOMNIRPSMA drill holes in the box and screw outside
Thank you, sticks to find, and the adapters which will fit? If you can, give a link, please. - esperanza commented on April 19th 20 at 12:37
@esperanza, Yes, usually where they sell the sticks, somewhere near there are certainly adapters - Briana commented on April 19th 20 at 12:40
@Briana, so they're probably different, and I will be using the Internet to order - everything is "nearby" )) - esperanza commented on April 19th 20 at 12:43

In the problem of lack of data. If you just need to pull the antenna out of the box, untwist your mikrotik and see if there is connectors.
But it'll be a farm in any case, you still kolhozah mount these antennas.
If the box only for aesthetics, replace it with plastic and do not worry, this is the easiest.
If the mikrotik only amplifies the signal replace the signal amplifier from the same mikrotik( it is much compacte ).
If you want one cable to pull out the point, take the very compact cap lite.

The external antenna had not. Depending on whether you need 5GHz or ac take cap, or cap
Thank you, what do cAP better cAP lite will be in this case? - esperanza commented on April 19th 20 at 12:41
@esperanza, the difference in design and 0.5 dbi antenna gain, i.e. slightly more sensitive antenna - flo.Botsford92 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:44
@flo.Botsford92, the design is still in this case, is it worth it to pay almost 2 times for a little more sensitive antenna? - esperanza commented on April 19th 20 at 12:47
From personal experience Cap ac very good. - ressie19 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:50

Judging by the photos - the connectors for external antennas on the Board are:

the review itself: https://habr.com/ru/post/351044/
This review was seen, but there is about these antenna connectors - nothing tells. Do they really work, what antennas are suitable for them? - esperanza commented on April 19th 20 at 12:43
@esperanza, judging by the photo - sma connectors.
the rest - either at random, or to torture manufacturer

p.s. I remember before they sold the boards separately for home creativity or embedding - Sydney97 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:46
