OTOH, after just 1 day of testing, I'm already very disappointed with the nRF24L01 modules.
Power is too weak, and range is too small. They are basically ok for "in the same room".


OK Oric, I just want to be sure of what you are doing. Here you are clearly alluding to the nRF24L01 module.
Is that what were alluding to in reply #7 with the 12m range?  My module is labelled nRF24L01+. The terms nRF24L01and nRF24L01+ seem to be used interchangeably.

The library package I have is RF24 from maniacbug.

Maybe you get what you pay for.

I don't think that there is any maybe about it.

I have the "+" modules, identical to the one shown here, reply #1,

Max transmitted power is only 0 dbm [1 mW], as far as I can tell, and that seems to be
the case on all of these Nordic devices.
