So far, after running ads in the local newspaper, we have been unable

Re: [WISPA] Comcast asking FCC for more 5GHz spectrum.

What could go wrong with Comcast taking up yet more 5GHz of 
spectrum...[/sarcasm off]

Comcast needs the FCC to open up the 5 GHz spectrum band to power 
next-generation Wi-Fi services that could allow it to deliver wireless 
broadband at speeds of up to 1 Gbps, SVP of Business Development Tom 
Nagel testified at a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Wednesday.


Nagel disclosed in his prepared testimony that Comcast has expanded 
the number of Wi-Fi access points for Xfinity high-speed Internet 
customers to 350,000. The nation's largest cable MSO also began 
deploying wireless gateways from Cisco earlier this year that Comcast 
has said may be able to power millions of neighborhood hotspots.


While Comcast already is already using the 5 GHz band, Nagel said it 
needs more of the unlicensed spectrum to meet demand from subscribers 
for Wi-Fi. It faces potential opposition from Toyota and other 
automobile manufacturers who want to use the 5 GHz band to deliver 
next-generation connected car applications, including applications 
that would warn drivers of collision threats.


Toyota principal researcher John Kenney raised concerns about possible 
interference from Wi-Fi services at Wednesday's hearing.  We have 
been actively engaged with the Wi-Fi community and other stakeholders 
who are exploring possible sharing solutions that will alleviate any 
risk of harmful interference from unlicensed devices… But we're not 
there yet and it's going to take a bit more time to see if we can get 
there, Kenney said in his prepared testimony.

Has anyone used iPerf before? I'm curious of your thoughts as to the
reliability, and how the results would map to a real-world
environment.
For example, a friend was testing some 3.65 radios (which had no
connection to the Internet) using iPerf. Based upon the iPerf
results, a
determination was made regarding maximum concurrent users per AP and
maximum aggregate bandwidth capacity of the radio. For the maximum
concurrent users I believe they tested this at several different
download and upload speed for the fictional users.

Having never used iPerf, I don't know if the results from their tests
(which were very poor by the way - much lower than common
configurations
of DL/UL rates as well as number of users per AP I've read many of
you
describing on these lists) map reasonably to what one would expect
from
a given AP, or if they tend to be wonky.

Thanks,

OTOH, if you run way over the power limits, _/operate out of

Others have other opinions.

My opinion is that the terms 'Professional Installer' and '

If trademark was a problem then you wouldn't be seeing a gazillion

I find when presenting to business, the best reaction I get from

Advance 4G fixed wireless services. They have no idea what the term 
actually refers to technically, but they've heard it used enough by 
Verizon and company to know it's probably a good thing...LOL.


Hell if anything WISPA networks are probably more 4G complain then ATT 
or Verizon!

 Hi All,

 I have noticed that lately many collegues are using Ubiquiti Nanobridge
 M5 (the one with small parabolic dish) and the product is nice for the
 signal (more or less).

 Unfortunately, I do not see in the *same price range*, the same product
 from Mikrotik. The only thing that I see is SEXTANT 5HnD which is
 declared to be 18dBi (much less that the 23dBi DECLARED by Ubiquiti)
 Antenna gain is almost entirely a function of size; with a dish, it's
 pretty straightforward.  The NM5 has 326 and 400 mm dish versions,
 for 22 and 25 dB nominal gain.  The Sextant is 250 mm; the SXT is 140
 mm.  Smaller dishes means less directivity and lower gain, but also
 less wind load and visibility.  Neither one is better in that
 regard; they're just different.  And they tend to price out a bit
 better than buying a radio and dish separately, but not by much.

 What I do not like of Ubiquiti is that compared to mikrotik it has much
 less features, for example no mac-ping/mac-telnet or multiple SSID (ok
 you can have multiple SSID if you use the CLI and the linux command line
 and maybe it will be implemented in the future)

 Therefore, I really wonder if those 18 vs 23 are real or just what you
 think from your field experience.
 Those features are just software and have nothing to do with the gain
 of the antenna.  It's like comparing horsepower of a car's engine
 with the comfort of the seats.  Personally I don't think the radio
 unit itself should do more than pass along Ethernet frames

 working from a Linux kernel and that already has lots of other
 capabilities, people expect their radios to also be routers.

Re: [WISPA] Internet Speed test..are they inaccurate with wireless?

2012-08-23 Thread Bret Clark
I initially brought up the question because I have Verizon FiOS at home 
and not matter what time of the day can run a speed test to the same 
server and see my 30Mbps DN/15 Mbps up.


If I run and Iperf test between my FiOS connection and one of our 
wireless business customers with 10Mbps circuit...it nails the speed 
every time... iperf show 10Mbps up  10Mbps down (we have a Linux server 
at the customers site).


Yet when that same customer runs the same speed.net test to the same 
speed.net server the results suck pretty much every single time!


I know the majority of test speed test are really based on algorithms 
that try to figure out what the potential speed of a circuit is and 
because our network is all wireless it just screws up the algorithms?

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquity ... Stock Price .. News ...

2012-08-10 Thread Bret Clark
The stock is tanking because its current-quarter revenue outlook came 
29% to 37% below Wall Street estimates which is going to pressure 
revenue into future quarters. Stock prices are based on future earnings 
and not earnings of today which is why even though the company meet 
expectations investors are concerned that future revenue will support 
the stock value it was at before the announcement.


On 08/10/2012 11:59 AM, Paolo Di Francesco wrote:
 It's interesting that the stock tanked after they basically met or exceeded 
 street expectations.

 Hi Greg

 in some cases, not saying this is the case, it can happen that the more
 success has a product the faster the company will be out of the market.

 This can happen in situations where the company has a product that is
 destroying the market for everybody, itself too. So if a market killer
 (i.e. a product/service that kills the market) has an unexpected success
 it can also mean the end of the company.

 I will do an example: let's say that for the nature of the market, the
 number of sold items will be 1 million. All companies are selling at
 100$ then one company steps in and sells at 10$. The market goes from
 100millions to 10 millions so basically if your company can survive with
 only 10 millions this year that will mean it's nice, but what about next
 year? If the product is very good and there is no new cool feature next
 year in the next product, nobody will buy it and next year the market
 will be around zero. No margin to survive next year in this market

 Well I hope that is not the case for UBNT let's wait and see :)

 just my 2 Euro cents

It would be a 5GHz link with sturdy 3ft radome but I'm not aware at what 
effect rime ice might have on 5GHz signal if any? Googling hasn't really

You can still use spectrum for customers as long as your back-haul links 
use antennas with small beam widths, or run your back-haul links in 
horizontal and customer links in vertical polarity. The fact that our 
infrastructure is 100% wireless (outside our Internet upstream links) 
has been a huge selling point for us in competing with the ILEC and

Re: [WISPA] Remore relay (or similar)

2012-01-09 Thread Bret Clark
I don't have any favorites, these were actually links that other WISPA 
members have posted in the past and I saved them. We actually use APC 
switched Rack PDU's at remote locations.


But to be honest, I don't remember the last time we needed to reboot a 
piece of equipment, just hasn't been an issue although it was once in 
the past. We used to use Tranzeo's products many many years ago that 
routinely needed to be rebooted, but thankfully we stopped using them 
and moved on to Redline, Solectek, Mikrotik, various other vendors..the 
need to reboot systems has long since disappeared that we don't even 
consider the ability to reboot something at a remote cell to be a priority.


IMHO, if one is putting in remote equipment that needs to be rebooted, 
then it's probably not the best equipment to be using in the field.

Re: [WISPA] Real enemy

2011-11-10 Thread Bret Clark
In the article But users who use up a disproportionate share of mobile 
bandwidth are subject to getting the boot (after a series of warnings) 
if they don't rein in their heavy voice and data usage.

And that's the crux of the problem with 3G/4G networks, so you're not 
dealing with the real problem for strained networks as you're still 
booting heavy users! Personally I've been trying to think of a way to 
take advantage of the pletheroia of smart phones and tablets growing 
each day. Much like ILEC's didn't get data growth on their networks back 
in the 90's, and arguably today, mobile carriers (with only slightly 
more of clue) are having just as hard of a time managing data growth. 
WISP on the other hand understand high volume data on wireless networks 
and how to best manage it, bring that expertise to smart phones/tablets 
and it's a compelling business story!

[WISPA] Providing data to NTIA for Broadband mapping?

2011-08-03 Thread Bret Clark
So, like many of you, we're being asked to provide data to NTIA for 
broadband mapping, but as a private company I'm rather bothered by the 
confidential information they are asking for. They want to know such 
things as our spectrum use, antenna locations, antenna types, etc. so 
they can model our coverage area (something we already do with Radio 
Mobile). We tried for stimulas money, but got rejected so to be honest I 
have little interest in providing this information, not to mention 
having the data used by our competitors.

I'm wondering how others felt about providing this information?

Thanks

 It's generally known that the 20 Mb burst given by cable companies is

 That said, the point I'm trying to make is that the technology has come so

 side-by-side to fixed terrestrial broadband technologies (think of it this 
 way, how many WISPs can deliver up-to speeds of 8-10 Mb to a low power 
 handset in the middle of a concrete building 3+ miles away from a tower)

Don't disagree, but the real question is that once the network is load 
will that still be the case...probably not. Much like the first neighbor 
on the new cable feed proclaiming the next coming of the Internet only 6 
months later lamenting about how his dial up was faster now that every 
neighborhood kid is on it with their Xboxes and PS3!

As far as WISP being able to deliver these speeds, that is a function of 
spectrum (blame the FCC)...not the technology to do it.

And again I want to see actual throughput test (FTP or IPERF) not some 
half-baked algorithm used by those speed test sites that are not all 
that reliable.

Re: [WISPA] Very Random 5GHz Noise Problem

It's not the clients having the problem so much as it's the base which 
is up on a mountain with the radio another 100 feet in the air.  I don't 
think this is a consumer device causing the problem.

Re: [WISPA] Very Random 5GHz Noise Problem

2011-02-07 Thread Bret Clark
This is happening in the entire 5GHz, we did have a spectrum analyzer up 
and we were able to catch the problem briefly. It looked like a high 
powered frequency hopper but we were unable to home in on it. The 
National Guard theory is sounding pretty good right now just because 
we'll go for so long without any problems; noise floor of -100db. We are 
in the process of looking into the locations of some National Guard 
sites in the area and will contact them to see if we can gain additional 
info. I'll update the list when I learn more.

[WISPA] FCC Favors Shifting Rural Subsidies To Broadband

2011-02-07 Thread Bret Clark
Ugh...not good. Last thing I need is to compete with the ILEC who is 
getting money from the Universal Slush Fund to provide government 
subsidized broadband in rural areas. And I can see every ILEC in America 
lobbing to ensure that the distribution of USF continues as is if the 
shift is made to broadband instead of telephone...basically filling the 
ILEC's coffers!  The FCC is looking for comments, so we all need to make 
it quite clear that the funds should be available for any and all 
broadband providers!

Re: [WISPA] [Board] WISP A Final Defination ...

2011-02-04 Thread Bret Clark
Title: signature


  
  
Need to yank the " primarily governed by FCC Part 15 regulations"
part, There are WISP all across the globe plus it's never a good
idea to tie a government entity into an industry unless you want to
invite yet more government regulation into that industry. Yeah,
yeah, I know what we do is tied closely to the FCC regulations, but
why make it lock step with the definitionIMHO. 

Also why tie the industry to "fixed wireless"? I'm keeping my eye on
how to also service the mobile market, not in a cell phone way, but
more towards the industry that the iPAD has created...that market is
only going to grow dramatically over the coming year.

We are running 5.8 and 3.65 stuff on towers with 100KW TV systems on the

Probably not much difference between 100KW 20 feet or 100 yards apart.

2010-12-20 Thread Bret Clark
True...good advice.

On 12/20/2010 05:56 PM, Jack Unger wrote:
 There is QUITE a difference between a separation distance of 20 ft and a
 separation distance of 100 yards. Remember the inverse-square law - RF 
 intensity
 decreases as the SQUARE of the separation distance. 100 yards is 300 feet and 
 20
 feet goes into 300 feet 15 times so the RF intensity at 100 yards is the 
 inverse
 of 15 squared (15X15) or the inverse of 225. Inverting 225 means that the
 intensity at 100 yards is only 1/225th as much as at 20 feet. Scott's 
 equipment
 is going to be exposed to 225 times greater RF energy than yours so his
 equipment is likely to be overloaded with receiver de-sensitization while your
 equipment may be OK.

 The solution is to do everything right as Scott says. The 11 GHz equipment 
 is
 likely so far away from the FM and TV frequencies that it is probably OK. The
 solution for 2.4 and 5 GHz is use proper bandpass filters between the antennas
 and the equipment then test to see if the receivers seem to have full
 sensitivity or not.

Re: [WISPA] Dropping Clients

2010-11-20 Thread Bret Clark




Did it rain recently? We had a similar problem where the antenna was
not sealed tight and everytime it rained hard clients would drop off,
but after a few hours of sun shining on the system they'd be fine until
the next heavy rain storm. The thing that threw us off was that light
or normal rain that didn't last long didn't seem to affect the antenna,
only heavy rain with maybe some wind thrown in the mix. 

Then on a different note, we've recently been battling an issue where
on one of our 5GH systems clients were all dropping off at very random
times...Turn out damn BAE systems down the road was testing frequency
hopping radar crap and every time it hopped into the frequency we were
using, the clients dropped off.

Put a power meter between the AP radio and the antenna and make sure
the radio is putting out the power it should. Also check the SWR,
should be about 1.3/5. I would guess that the clients being dropped
are the ones furthest away, if the AP is losing power or the antenna is
wet or damaged and losing signal.

Yes. Since you said "it has now dropped 15 of 20

that AP. I'd swap it out with a known good AP and see if that helps.
Otherwise, you may be having some interference issues on that sector
which would mean you'll need a cavity filter. On that note, can you run
a spectrum scan to see?

 How do you handle support?  Custom acd, dial plans, etc.  I assume your voip

 Ryan



We integrated our VoIP partner with our support ticketing system and 
support call center (gave them VoIP phones and tied them into our 
Trixbox) so it looks like to the customer that they are just 
calling/contacting our support team. VoIP hasn't been a problem, but the 
biggest PIA we see is faxes and credit card machines...modem and VoIP 
are not great combinations...it works but sometimes can be a pain.

Basically we just run VoIP to an ATA at the customer location and then 
just hand off either an analog or digital line that ties into their 
existing Key/PBX, so for the customer they really don't see any change 
except a lower monthly bill.

One thing you do need to do is tell the analog customers that they will 
lose phone if there is no power...amazing how many customers just don't 
understand that concept; guess a 100 years of running on copper have set 
thier ways. I won't deny that we sometimes recommend the customer keep 
one copper line as an emergency if they are concern with loss of phone 
during power outages.

We partnered with a small VoIP company that is local in our area and

Subject:EFF needs your help to stop the Senate's DNS censorship bill

From:   Peter Eckersley p...@eff.org
To: na...@nanog.org



Dear network operators,

I apologise for a posting that contains some politics; I hope you'll agree
that it also has fairly substantial short-to-medium term operational
implications.

As you may or may not have heard, there is a censor-DNS-to-enforce-copyright
bill that is going to be passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee this
Wednesday.  It will require service providers to censor the DNS entries of
blacklisted domains where piracy is deemed too central to the site's purpose.
Senators are claiming that they haven't heard any opposition to this bill, and
it is being sponsored by 14 of the 19 committee members.  We believe it needs
to be stopped, and we need your help.

What EFF needs right now is sign-ons to an open letter, from the engineers who
helped build the Internet in the first place.  The text of our letter is
below.  If you agree with it and would like to sign, please send me an email
at p...@eff.org, with your name and a one-line summary of what part of the
Internet you have helped to design, implement, debug or run.

This is URGENT.  I need your sign-ons by 4:00pm, US Eastern time (1pm
Pacific), tomorrow.  Unfortunately, the civil liberties community has been
ambushed by this bill.

You can find out more details on the bill here: https://eff.org/coica

---

Open letter from Internet engineers to members of the Senate Judiciary 
Committee:

We, the undersigned, have played various parts in building a network called
the Internet. We wrote and debugged the software; we defined the standards and
protocols that talk over that network. Many of us invented parts of it. We're
just a little proud of the social and economic benefits that our project, the
Internet, has brought with it.

We are writing to oppose the Committee's proposed new Internet censorship and
copyright bill. If enacted, this legislation will risk fragmenting the
Internet's global domain name system (DNS), create an environment of
tremendous fear and uncertainty for technological innovation, and seriously
harm the credibility of the United States in its role as a steward of key
Internet infrastructure. In exchange for this, the bill will introduce
censorship that will simultaneously be circumvented by deliberate infringers
while hampering innocent parties' ability to communicate.

All censorship schemes impact speech beyond the category they were intended to
restrict, but this bill will be particularly egregious in that regard because
it causes entire domains to vanish from the Web, not just infringing pages or
files. Worse, an incredible range of useful, law-abiding sites can be
blacklisted under this bill. These problems will be enough to ensure that
alternative name-lookup infrastructures will come into widespread use, outside
the control of US service providers but easily used by American citizens.
Errors and divergences will appear between these new services and the current
global DNS, and contradictory addresses will confuse browsers and frustrate
the people using them. These problems will be widespread and will affect sites
other than those blacklisted by the American government.

The US government has regularly claimed that it supports a free and open
Internet, both domestically and abroad. We can't have a free and open Internet
without a global domain name system that sits above the political concerns and
objectives of any one government or industry. To date, the leading role the US
has played in this infrastructure has been fairly uncontroversial because
America is seen as a trustworthy arbiter and a neutral bastion of free
expression. If the US suddenly begins to use its central position in the DNS
for censorship that advances its political and economic agenda, the
consequences will be far-reaching and destructive.

Senators, we believe the Internet is too important and too valuable to be
endangered in this way, and implore you to put this bill aside.

We don't charge only because we are in a competitive environment and 
sell to business that have contracts; thus we can charge more on the MTM 
rates. If you're the only game in town I see no reason why not to charge 
(might as well take advantage of being a monopoly), but if they could 
leave to go somewhere else then it really comes down to what your ROI is

   setup.  If this would work, anyone got sources that i can buy

 a
   feed horn?  Thanks.


 I forget where we bought the feedhorns from, but this can be done.

 We actually just replaced two of them, doing exactly what you
 describe.
 There was a catch, though. The feedhorn has two N connectors, a
 few
 inches and ninety degrees apart. One of the two dishes had a
 smaller
 hole in the center, and my climber had to take up snips and a
 rasp,
 and
 basically put a small notch in the center of the dish, to get the
 new
 feedhorn to fit. The other dish was older, or newer, or something,
 and
 already had a suitable small notch in the center.

Re: [WISPA] I'm pulling Mikrotik

2010-09-17 Thread Bret Clark
For the large number of us who use Mikrotiks and haven't seen the 
problems you are having, it just has me suspicious that the problems 
you've seen with the Mikrotiks are a result of an indirect problem. Then 
again maybe the Mikrotik's just don't do well in a large bridge environment?

2010-09-17 Thread Bret Clark
I would have to agree...you could switch to all UBNT, but whose to say 
they will handle a large bridging network any better? I think before 
making any kind hardware change, you need to convert the network into a 
routed environment to control traffic.

after the routing is done.  You will be amazed at how much a routed 
network will improve the quality of the network.   There are other 
things he could try to hunt down, but until all that bridging is

Re: [WISPA] Taking the plunge

2010-09-14 Thread Bret Clark

First at the interface level, you need to enable WMM.

Then I set up the following rules which ensures that DSCP sets layer 2 
priority WMM needs:


/ip firewall mangle
add action=set-priority chain=prerouting comment=VoIP WMM  disabled=no 
new-priority=from-dscp passthrough=yes protocol=\

udp 

Most VoIP services tend to use DSCP of 46.

Then I set a somewhat broadbase firewall/queue rule which basically says 
UDP packets should get preference since 99.9% of VoIP is UDP and I make 
it the first queue rule before all others.


/ip firewall mangle add action=mark-packet chain=forward comment=VoIP 
disabled=no in-interface=ether1 new-packet-mark=VoIP \

passthrough=no protocol=udp

/queue simple
add burst-limit=0/0 burst-threshold=0/0 burst-time=0s/0s comment= 
direction=both disabled=no dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 interface=all \
limit-at=0/0 max-limit=0/0 name=VoIP Traffic packet-marks=VoIP 
parent=none priority=1 queue=synchronous-default/synchronous-default \

total-queue=default-small

These rules can be massaged quite a bit to be more specific since a lot 
of other apps use UDP too. Some things we'll do to make the rule more 
specific is find out the users VoIP provider and then setup the queue 
based on the VoIP's IP block.

 Has anyone down this?  Success?  I know I cannot turn on Airmax till
 everyone is on the UBNT with that capability but does it work fine till you

Re: [WISPA] Cogent in St. Louis

2010-09-10 Thread Bret Clark
Agree for the most part, but as of recently we've been dealing with the 
latency through their network over in the New England 
region...frustratingly, Cogent is not owning up to it at the moment, but 
I'm guessing with their low Mbps per pricing and the economy being in 
the dumps, they've probably have done well in selling onto their network 
which has now become oversubscribe...well at least in the Boston-NYC 
corridor as other parts of their network seem fine.

Re: [WISPA] Recommendation on Redline's PtP line?

One thing nice about Redlines is that you put them up and seem to forget

very nice units, but won't argue that they are expensive.

 They are TDD, and from what I hear, they are conservative in their

 their numbers.

 Any input there?  The ones I listed there run about $1600 retail on

Do I dare say we have two (2) 100Mbs circuits for $1500 :)! Of course we 
were fortunate that we were able to run a wireless backhaul link to a 
CLEC hotel and thus only have to pay for the data portion since we 
eliminated the ridiculously cost of the last mile loop charges the ILEC 
gets.

We also are possibly looking at Comcast for a third BGP session, but it 
is my understanding that they only provide BGP on their Ethernet fiber 
services...haven't yet confirmed that though.

I agree...the economy sucks, use it to your advantage. Tell your vendor 
you're having a hard time paying the current rate and that you need to 
get the price lowered or you may have to look at closing your doors. 
You'll be amazed at how many will change their tune regarding contract 
terms.

Another thing to try is that if you can get a lower price you'll reup on 
the contract for another 3 years...or whatever your current contract 
period was.

 Not so fast... Sure, if the other party wont let you out of a contract, the

 There are many reasons a party might want to let the other party out of a
 contract term or renegotiate it.

 A vendor does not benefit if a Buyer goes out of business.
 A Vendor does not benefit if a Buyer is locked in for another year at a high
 rate, if that rate forces the buyer to signup with another provider at a
 lower rate for the rest of enternity.
 Its called customer retention.  When the market changes sometime contracts
 need to adapt with the new market conditions.
 One must also ask what it might cost to inforce a contract, and sometimes
 taht is more than the revenue that would be discounted by keeping the
 custoemr happy and retained long term and paying on time.

 I'm not going to mention any names, but at ISPCON, someone I considered a
 mentor spoke at a session, and what he learned was So what if there is a
 contract... Hold out, and convince your vendors why they should work with
 you on price. While under contract, he was able to get most vendors to lower
 prices, for mutual benefit.

 Admittedly, ATT is not like a company that would easily budge on contract
 terms, expecially in an underserved area where they are a near monopoly, but
 it doesn't mean that they wont.

 As the distances go up, the longer it takes for the packet to be transmitted

That doesn't sound right to me...radio waves travel at the speed of 
light. There is some round trip time for internal electronics 
processing, but usually what happens is that on further links the 
radio's have to go to a more robust modulation scheme such as QPSK 
rather them QAM so you can't transmit as much info. Of course to 
compensate for that you can increase the frequency being used, higher 
power, etc.

Wouldn't you have to get them to run BGP over this connection, so you

wouldn't want to do that for more than a couple hours while the real

And I don't believe Comcast offers BGP not to mention you mileage will

drops dramatically...we've had quite few customers come back to us for 
this exact reason. I suppose in a pinch it would be better then nothing.

They are closing a deal with Verizon on Monday that will essentially
blackmail content providers. Want your content to get through faster?
Pay us. That is pretty much it in a nutshell. Maybe ISPs around the
world should block Google entirely unless they pay you then.

Sounds a lot like a proxy arp issue where a device is trying to answer

going to work well.

I remember seeing something similar to this on the list a few months back.
Turned out he guy was running a bridged network and water got into the
Ethernet connector on a Bullet and was causing Layer2 broadcast storms on
the network. Very similar results to what you are reporting.

This has been a very long day, after a lightning storm we started to
have towers randomly drop for 2-10 minutes with no consistency as to
where, how how long.  The tower that was affected by last nights
lightning restarted (locally) so that wasn't it.  The outages were so
extensive that at one time we had 17 devices down and five minutes later
65 devices down, 10 minutes later 33, so you see where this is coming
from.  I went to the head end and rebooted everything from the core
router on out., changed passwords on the core in case it had been
compromised but show run didn't reveal anything.  Oh the other thing,
every computer we have started to say IP address is in use on the
network, no matter what we changed it to, even a subnet we don't yet use
it said it was in use.  I had to repair my connection often just to do
work on the network and it would work for a while then again say
duplicate IP.  That's why I'm convinced it's traffic.

I started turning Towers back on one at a time and for about 6 towers
there were no drops, I drove to the next junction site to turn more on
but by then the original 6 were dropping, I turned the rest of them on
but by now it's 11PM so traffic was probably lower as it's Sat. Night.
Honestly I don't know what to do, Our Backhauls are all Mikrotik to our
12 towers, WireShark isn't seeing anything unusual, I have icmp packet
drop in the filters.  My weekend is basically ruined, what's new in this
business, but if anyone has ideas I've talked to two networking gurus in
town and they both said geez I don't know you wireless guys have way
bigger networks than we do.  sigh.

Re: [WISPA] [WISPA Members] Health Insurance

2010-07-28 Thread Bret Clark
We went through an independent broker who essentially had created a
small business group plan of area businesses that help keep cost down
verses us going to the insurer ourselves. Another thing to consider is
Health Savings Accounts (HSA) which are a lot less then regular health
insurance but at least affords some piece of mind for employees in the
event they are faced with a serious medical or health issue.

 our effort.
 
  
 
 My goal is to offer a group plan that will assist those who do not

 improve your coverage.

 Subject: [WISPA] Is this a record of some kind?

 This evening I was at one of my access points... one that has several
 backhauls and various 2.4 and 5 ghz ap's at it.

 After I was done with my few minutes of doing things, I wanted to make sure
 I had not physically disconnected or accidentally unhooked anything (messing

 with the batteries, checking water levels, etc).I pulled out a netbook.
 Acer Aspire One to be precise, running windows xp, using the normal wifi
 card it came with.   I fired it up (it is set to any so it simply
 associates to the access points that are open at home, work, etc), and after

 I was done, noted it said it was connected, at which point I opened google
 on the browser to confirm connectivity.   Google popped up, meaning things
 were connected, and then I decided to run a speed test.   I got about 30KB/s

 speed, which is like painfully slow.   I was standing outside, with the
 netbook sitting on the hood of my truck.

 So, I decided to see what it was associated to, and it was another access
 point ...  11 MILES AWAY!   I confirmed it by the SSID and by the ip dhcp
 had assigned, as belonging to the ap 11 miles distant.

 It has no external antenna, just the one the factory built into the netbook.

 I have detected, using netstumbler and the internal antenna on my laptop
 (dell C610 and CM9 installed) access points over 24 miles away before, but
 this is the longest, by far, I have been able to get a real connection, dhcp

 assignment, and transfer data.
