 Order PRI to our tower in their territory? We're working with VoxCorp, so
 they have to be able to grab those numbers even if we do something like
 this..
 
 Verizon  Wireless has local numbers with this company for their cellular,
 and it has to be because they have towers in their territory with PRIs???
 
 Somebody have a solution?

Re: [WISPA] SR5 vs. XR5

2008-11-04 Thread cw
It's not the output power that differentiates SR radios from XR radios. We 
got better quality links from 100mW CM9s than SR cards. The XR radios are 
finer grained and hear better.

Mario Pommier wrote:
 what is the output of those cards?
 
 the xr5 are 600mW aren't they?
 
 aren't the sr5 400mW?
 
 *600mW (28dBm)
 400mW (26dBm)*
 
 the posted results seem accurate.

 What I have seen is not so much an improvement in the receive db reading

 couple of links that were having issues with intermittent drops that
 went away with the XR5 cards.

 It's a 2 hour drive (each way) and requires taking the link down

 We have a 15 mile shot (using MT) that is just _barely_ line of site

The easiest way to monitor whether you have outside power is to plug any 
device you can ping into the same outlet your batteries charge from. Power 
goes out and ping response stops. We used to use a lot of D-Link G810 
bridges so that's what we happen to have a lot of and use but anything you 
can ping will work. - cw

Lets not forget that 30k packet is a 28k header with a 2k payload. Make sure

How big are the yagis?

Ok,
I'll have to admit when I first got my Trango 900 I was a bit disapointed.

It was not a fault of Trango, it was just my expectations of how much 
foilage could be penetrated. They have been solid radios, just lower 
throughput and  not as penetratable as what I was hoping for.


on the other other hand my RF Linx 2.4g to 900MHz UDC's made me a happy 
camper. I've had a link that is about 1 mile that is almost all trees 
and tree tops in the way. 5 megs across this link. 3 years running. Of 
course this is yagi to yagi PtP shot, which helps quite abit. I bought 
some 900 Yagi's to use, but only have one in service.

[WISPA] SR9 Performance

2006-08-31 Thread cw
Is anyone getting satisfactory performance with SR9s on WAR boards? If so, 
what antennas are you using for base station and subscriber end?


At an 1/8 of a mile through foliage and structures, a neg ninety two is rock 
solid moving 1500k/sec with a couple of coat hangers for antennas. At 1/4 of 
a mile with less of everything in the way, a neg eighty-five barely 
associates and drops packets with most antenna combinations we've tried.


A Pac Wireless 8dBi omni on the base station was the worst. Small Pac 
Wireless sector panel to sector panel was the best performance. Yagi to omni 
was worse than disappointing. I'd appreciate any antenna suggestions.

Of course we do not use omnis and coat hangers but rather PacWireless
9 dB, 11 dB and 13 dB yagis.

Our initial test configuration is a 4 port WAR board with 2 SR9 radios
in the bottom slots and 2 WLM-54G radios in top slots.  We run from
24V solar, so the voltage goes from 21V to 28V depending on state of
charge and battery.  With our tower locations I can hit the both
directions up and down our Valley on both 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz.  Wer
figure almost everybody should be able to connect with one or both.
The preference will be for 2.4 GHz and use 900 MHz for tough jobs.

I'll have more information later this week as we begin to connect a
few customers and let them beat on it.

uncertainty. With no national broadband policy in place, multiple
service providers are targeting affluent urban areas, while leaving many
poor and rural dwellers to fend for themselves. In big cities, that

which broadband technology is the best? Many just stick with what they

I don't know how you expect the industry to police itself when the FCC acts 
deaf. Next time you encounter a damnit remark, add state government to the 
list of not playing nice. Our footprint is the Florida Keys. Last year the 
department of transportation decided to erect giant poles down the center of 
our one highway to put up signs to tell us whether our highway was busy or 
not and suggest no alternate route when it was (it's our only road).


They used 5.8GHz DSSS and 2.4GHz DSSS both for the poles to talk to each 
other. Grid antennas polluted the spectrum even more. Because of the narrow 
geographic nature of the islands and the highway being in the center, one 
can't even use a 5.8GHz cordless phone inside their home anymore. When we 
called Tallahassee to complain, the head of the DoT IT dept wanted to know 
why we weren't using 4.9GHz for the buoy link the signs killed.


WISPs aren't the only ones shitting in their nests. Every day they pile it 
higher and one just has to figure out another way around the edges. - cw

No FUD being slung here. On the 4.9 issue I filed that question and deal
with that assumption quite a bit. I suspect your definition of WISP is
more narrow than mine. Mine includes ANY entity providing services with
wireless broadband gear. There are utility-based WISPs, telco WISPs,
large funded WISPs, Mom and Pop WISPs, rural WISPs, etc. The fact is
that the public is not able and does not differentiate between all the
competing groups of WISPs and groups like WISPA should understand that.

I hope it does go UL, but I have also heard some recent rumblings that

the FCC is concerned with what seems like a widespread deterioration of
WISPs following the rules. The phrase I recall is something along the
lines of Damn it, these things are not guidelines.


From my view it is true. I see it in conversations that go beyond the

usual, if you just stay within the power no one cares to now where
people seem to via the STA process as a round-about tool to get access
to and use spectrum that does not commercially exist.

Letting loose the same level of abuse in the TV bands is something that
will cause real problems for the FCC should broadcasters be affected.
The WISP industry must do a better job of policing itself and
discouraging the slippery slope.

We use WAR boards but if it's resi wireless LAN needed, these work fine

$22 delivered. Throw them away when they die. All the consumer grade stuff

Re: [WISPA] Routers

2007-02-08 Thread cw
Those _are_ Netgear routers. The thread was looking for consumer grade 
routers. All sub hundred dollar wireless routers are going to lose their way 
periodically and require power cycling. This particular router has Atheros 
chipset and it's priced for throw away so you don't have to waste more on 
RMA than the router is worth in the first place.

Those look like Netgear routers.  We run PPPoE and have always had
trouble with Netgear routers requiring a reboot to reconnect if you do
something stupid like update the firmware on the Mikrotik PPPoE server
in the middle of the night.

Re: [WISPA] CALEA Exemption for Small Wireless ISPs

2007-05-02 Thread cw
My opinion is that you're not helping the big picture by saying compliance 
is more than you can handle. The FCC is not going to go out of their way to 
hand out more spectrum to providers that can't perform basic requirements. 
Just like they're not going to help providers that refuse to file 475 forms. 
You can build a unix box for five hundred dollars that will do the job for 
you. Or you can buy a turnkey box with support for seven thousand. I've seen 
it suggested people pool their funds and share a $7000 turnkey box. If you 
can't do any of these things, then you can't provide required services. I 
don't like or trust government but I don't think they're out of line 
requiring providers be CALEA compliant. This one ain't special interests 
motivated. - cw


Jack Unger wrote:

Dear Representative Stupak,

I'm writing to support your request on March 14, 2007 asking that the 
FCC Commissioners consider a waiver from CALEA regulations for small 
broadband providers.


In a nutshell, the costs of complying with the CALEA provisions are far 
in excess of what small broadband providers can afford to pay. It is 
poor government policy to allow the costs of CALEA compliance to 
literally put small broadband providers out of business thereby denying 
broadband Internet access to many rural Americans.


Do you plan to introduce legislation that directs the FCC to reconsider 
their regulations and to consider the compliance costs when regulating 
small Internet access providers?


Please advise me how I can further support your effort to retain 
broadband Internet access service for rural Americans.


Thank you for your time, interest, and efforts.

Sincerely,
Jack Unger


P.S. - I am copying this email to the general email list maintained by 
the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA.org) to help 
as many small ISPs as possible learn about and support your efforts in 
their behalf. I will forward your response to this list.
