David, In your haste to sell equipment you may have failed to understand that the question was about availability of unlicensed equipmement. The correct answer is that there is NO UNLICENSED 3650 OPERATION. All 3650 operation requires an FCC license. jack David Peterson wrote: Have them

Dustin, I appreciate your thoughtful post. I general, I can help WISPs get equipment certified but 3650 is a little more difficult. The lab I work with hasn't been too responsive on 3650 inquiries. I have a contact at an alternate lab but I have not yet sounded them out regarding 3650. You

That's nice, but in real life the FCC has simply gotten on a tear and decided that NOTHING qualifies for what they want. I have no idea what the purpose of this rather odd bit of nonsense is about, but when it declares that 802.11 does not detect dissimilar systems, then nothing can EVER be

The RF energy detection mechanism of 802.11a is sort of based on power level. If the preamble is detected and decoded, then the mechanism is activated at -82dBm. Otherwise it requires a relatively high energy level (-62dBm). Although I agree that even -62dBm seems fair. It would be very useful

As an ISP, you have to keep up with the Joneses. The reason why dial-up has died, is because companies began to engineer their web applications for the up to 1 meg service of DSL and cable (20 times faster than dialup). With cable at 15+ megs, DSL available at 10 - 15 megs, and new fiber

If you can call the current Light-licensed scheme put in place by the FCC, then yes naturally you have to register your towers and equipment with the FCC. However, the procedure is not terribly difficult to navigate and the cost is not prohibitive. What I was referring to was the WiMax 3.65GHz

The energy level for backoff CAN be adjusted. The FCC says that NEITHER is acceptable, and even though the atheros mechanism is just an energy detection, it will not be allowed. This is what I gathered from an assortment of emails on the topic, some of which were from the FCC to someone

Yes, I do call the current 3650 licensed-lite licensing rules licensed because it IS licensed. It's true that the 3650 licensing requirements are not prohibitively expensive or difficult but a licensed service is significantly different than a license-exempt service where the rules were not

1. Kill all encryption on both ends, get them to pass traffic and then proceed with enabling encryption. 2. be sure you have WDS in the bridge or have both sides set to dynamic bridge1 (or whatever it is) 3. Be sure of your gateway on both sides (this is generally the easiest to jack up) Mac

A quick way to check connectivity is to look at the neighbor list. You should see the other system (and as a bonus its IP). If you do not then something else is wrong (be sure the interfaces have it enabled). As mentioned, turn off the encryption and get it working first. Double check the arp
