Anything on Central California? That's a big chunk of real estate. Also,
it's important for me to get this updated for our internal records asap.
I've been bull dozed by those big 500 pounders before and it's just a blast!

Re: [WISPA] Adding External Batteries to a UPS

2011-10-07 Thread Chuck Profito
Try the SMART1000LCD, 1000VA / 500 watts, from Costco, $89.00. Pull the
battery, buy two more just like it from Interstate Battery, make 2 lines
apx. 20 inches each with 1 male and 3 female. plug in male to ups threaded
thru vents, put the three batteries on top the case and plug in. For ease of
handling duct tape the batteries together horizontally. They will always
come back when power is applied(default is ON), until circuit failure, about
4-5 years. Less if you have really bad power, like on a old dairy, maybe 3
years.

We used these a lot in commercial building closets, because of their compact

foot print, and excellent Power protection..
(Although never used the snmp card)

We've pulled almost all of them out to date. The reason we stopped using 
them is that like all other consumer UPSes, they tend to fail bad, when 
batteries die, and not restore power to the equipment until a site visit to 
remove UPS from service. (although we did like that it has a physical on/off

switch, not just button, to force UPS on state).

Whats also a pain is that the internal batteries are NOT easilly removable. 
You have to take it apart in half, and hope not to short anything in the 
process, and prey the leads stay on when put back togeather.  (unless 
they've changed the cases, for better access, since)

 Looking at this UPS.

 It is small enough to fit in our standard outdoor enclosures.  It also
 supports being monitored by SNMP.  Problem is it does not have an
 external battery connector.  Has anyone had any luck adding external

Re: [WISPA] The Legislative Situation Is Dire

2011-07-21 Thread Chuck Profito
TOM DeREGGI, 

 I would like to make you a Serious Business Offer. OK?


Seriously. This is a real offer. In fact, you really can't turn me down, as
you'll come to understand in a moment.

Here's the deal. You're going to start a business or expand the one you've
got now. It doesn't really matter what you do or what you're going to do.
I'll partner with you no matter what business you're in - as long as it's
legal.

But I can't give you any capital - you have to come up with that on your
own. I won't give you any labor - that's definitely up to you. What I will
do, however, is demand you follow all sorts of rules about what products and
services you can offer, how much (and how often) you pay your employees, and
where and when you're allowed to operate your business. That's my role in
the affair - to tell you what to do.

Now in return for my rules, I'm going to take roughly half of whatever you
make in the business each year. Half seems fair, doesn't it? I think so. Of
course, that's half of your profits.

You're also going to have to pay me about 12% of whatever you decide to pay
your employees because you've got to cover my expenses for promulgating all
the rules about who you can employ, when, where, and how. Come on, you're my
partner. It's only fair.

Now. after you've put your hard-earned savings at risk to start this
business, and after you've worked hard at it for a few decades (paying me my
50% or a bit more along the way each year), you might decide you'd like to
cash out - to finally live the good life.

Whether or not this is fair - some people never can afford to retire - is
a different argument. As your partner, I'm happy for you to sell whenever
you'd like. because our agreement says if you sell, you have to pay me an
additional 20% of whatever the capitalized value of the business is at that
time.

I know. I know. you put up all the original capital. You took all the risks.
You put in all the labor. That's all true. But I've done my part, too. I've
collected 50% of the profits each year. And I've always come up with more
rules for you to follow each year. Therefore, I deserve another, final 20%
slice of the business.

Oh. and one more thing.

Even after you've sold the business and paid all my fees. I'd recommend
buying lots of life insurance. You see, even after you've been retired for
years, when you die, you'll have to pay me 50% of whatever your estate is
worth.

After all, I've got lots of partners and not all of them are as successful
as you and your family. We don't think it's fair for your kids to have
such a big advantage. But if you buy enough life insurance, you can finance
this expense for your children.

All in all, if you're a very successful entrepreneur. if you're one of the
rare, lucky, and hard-working people who can create a new company, employ
lots of people, and satisfy the public. you'll end up paying me more than
75% of your income over your life. Thanks so much.

I'm sure you'll think my offer is reasonable and happily partner with me.
But it doesn't really matter how you feel about it because if you ever try
to stiff me - or cheat me on any of my fees or rules - I'll break down your
door in the middle of the night, threaten you and your family with heavy,
automatic weapons, and throw you in jail.

That's how civil society is supposed to work, right? This is Amerika, isn't
it?

That's the offer Amerika gives its entrepreneurs. And the idiots in
Washington wonder why there are no new jobs.

In support of your points

 

On the news the other day, they pointed out a dituation where the city of
Wash DC is having the cops harrass the Bicycle Taxis, and got Politions on
the record saying that they are trying to find a way to regulate them.  The
count is something like 50 total bucycle Taxi across the city. Isn't this a
bit extreme and wasteful to go after a few bicycle riders? They literally
work hard to give others enjoyment, a public good.  My point here is...  if
the government can see it, they will try to regulate it.  Thats what
governments do, they regulate things.  The government really needs to stop,
they are sticking their nose into way to many businesses, taking regulation
to a point of harrasment instead of a public good.  Its the whole thing
about making regulation in search of a problem, instead of the proper way
which is indentifying a clear problem and regulating to solve it. Or in my
opinion, to get out of the way and let the free market solve

Depending on how it needs to be installed between buildings, there may not
be much cost difference between fiber and copper, especially if you need
multiple circuits.  Fiber is not really expensive and you can get a lot of
strands in a small cable.  Just be sure to run more strands than you need.

I can run overhead cable of most any type I need to.  Coax, cat3 or cat5, or
even fiber if the price is right...

Site 1 to site 2 is 700 ft.  Site 2 to site 3 is 900 ft.  Site 3 to site 4

I have a special job to do.

I need to connect 4 sites together in a line and provide Ethernet
connectivity between them.  I may NOT use wireless to do this.

I can run overhead cable of most any type I need to.  Coax, cat3 or cat5, or
even fiber if the price is right...

Site 1 to site 2 is 700 ft.  Site 2 to site 3 is 900 ft.  Site 3 to site 4
is 2400 ft. 

Looking for options...

An elevator in the tower stops about 45 feet short of the top. Ginopolis
said the man did not appear to have access to the elevator, which is kept
locked.

The only thing it's safe to assume is that he got there under his own
power, Ginopolis said. You have to climb the tower get to the top.

I got several of each, but I ended up using channel 1 mostly.  When I
put that puppy in, I got like 40 dB less noise on the channels I
didn't want, and I also could not even hear other APs when I moved the
radio to channels 2-11 (there is that much isolation in the filter).

Now throughput is much smoother and higher.  Before I put these in,
bandwidth would be slow and come in spurts (as evidenced by various
throughput tools like iperf and online speed tests).

These days, nearly all of our gadgets connect to the Internet. And the vast
majority of them do it wirelessly.

As awesome as wireless communication is, it has its limits. For example, if
you aren't in a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can't connect.

Virtual Router can help. It turns your laptop into a roaming wireless
hotspot. All you need is some type of Internet connection. It can be through
a local area network, 3G or dial-up.

This gives you the opportunity to connect your Wi-Fi only gadgets. And you
can secure your hotspot with WPA2 encryption. That means you're still safe
even while you're broadcasting Wi-Fi.

Brad,

A tip on the Loggers 8 port...there is a rechargeable battery inside that
doesn't seem to last more than a year. Once it dies, you lose your config
and if the device ever looses power, everything comes back in either all off
state or all on state. I tossed one logger and then when it happened to a
second, I decided to tinker. I got a replacement battery at batteries plus
and it started working correctly again, saving my config after a power
outage. I'm not sure what can be done about it except to put them on a
maintenance schedule. Of course this was on the older devicesmaybe
they've gone to flash memory now?

We've had more failures than successes with the Digital Loggers eight port

we've seen out of them the past several years.

 

I noticed on Digital Loggers site that they have a newer version available.
Maybe this version is more reliable?  I've also read that the DIN mount
style rebooter is more reliable than the 2U rack mount style.  Maybe Kevin
could somehow integrate the DIN unit into his PoE controller to save costs
and development.

 

While I think adding a couple AC ports to this device would be neat..let's
not divert from the intent of this product from being a PoE controller.

 

I wonder why UBNT doesn't design a PoE controller that would fit the need?
Seems like a natural fit product that they could also manage via their
AirControl System management software.

Kevin, 

On cost:  With your model, we're still going to need to buy a device like a
Digital Loggers remote AC reboot device because we will need to reboot a
router or switch.

If it can have a couple of AC ports to power a Mikrotik router (x86-based)
and a switch, we don't have to ALSO buy another remote boot device ($350
value).

Since we can get the remote booting with the digital logger box, then all
your box has done is clean up our PoE's, and I wouldn't pay nearly that
much.

On 3/2/2011 3:23 PM, Kevin Sullivan wrote: 

So... we're most of the way through a mid-span design similar to what people
are outlining here. Right now it's only non-standard POE, though. No 802.3.
Again, we were only going to build three, for our own use. If we sold
something that was:

 

Remote on/off per port

Auto-ping reboot per port

Dual-power supply, with notification on fail

DC powered, either 12, 24, or 48v

The one we are working on is 24v output only

1u rackmount or small form factor wall mountable

SNMP for reboot, voltage monitoring, input monitoring

 

We figured if it's a DC device, we can plug it into 110v easily with a
transformer.

 

If it was $450, would anyone buy them? Actually, what I really need to know
is, would we be able to get rid of 90 of them? We'd have to make a batch of
100, and we could use 10.  We'd get them back from the PCB manufacturer
mid-May.

Re: [WISPA] Wow- and how stimulus works

2010-12-24 Thread Chuck Profito
MDK- just for you.  :-}

-Or

It is a slow day in the small Minnesota town of Marshall, and the streets
are deserted.  Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is
living on credit. 

A rich tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel,
lays a $100 bill on the desk and says he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs
before selecting one for the night. 

1. As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs
next door to pay his debt to the butcher. 

2. The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to
the pig farmer. 

3. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
supplier, the Farmer's Co-op. 

4. The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to
the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to
offer her services on credit. 

5. The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel
owner. 

6. The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the rich
traveler will not suspect anything. 

At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are
not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves town. 

No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town is
now out of debt and looks to the future with a lot more optimism. 

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Stimulus works.

Hello this is Taylor Wisdom, Bill Wisdom's son. My father just informed me

Takers. I did download the film Takers from a bit torrent website and

Re: [WISPA] Problems with facebook and hotmail

2010-11-25 Thread Chuck Profito
Agreed, everyone gets different photo and messages depending who their
associated to. it would probably drive the squid nuts, especially when FB is
busy and slow and squid is trying to compare.  
BTW, Watch out on not controlling the upload, one sub ftp'ing  out or P2P
could kill your full download.  I'm guessing, but, you are probably only 1/2

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Remote Controlled Drone

Let us all know how that works out for you.  Key things I noticed when I
read the FAQ,

1.  the range will be greater if the AR drone is used in wide-open space
with few Wi-Fi waves.  Now, I am not a great technical wizard, but won't
the majority of users from the WISPA mailing list have some of those pesky
Wi-Fi waves kicking around?

2.  the AR.Drone can maintain STABLE FLIGHT (emphasis added by me) at a
height of up to 6 meters / 20 feet.  Now, Stable flight would be kind of 
important
when doing anything other than using it as a fun toy I would imagine.  I 
don't see
many water tanks under 20 feet - and if I did I carry a ladder.

All I was trying to do was get a bit more info out there on the thing, it 
looks like
a GREAT toy, and I am thinking about ordering one just to play around with, 
but
to expect it to be a dependable tool in your toolbox?  Buyer beware.  They 
put
plenty of warnings in the information on the manufacturers web page, (which
is what I posted) so don't expect STABLE FLIGHT
more than that 20 feet up, and be pleasently surprised if you get more
than the 20 feet.


? What is the range of the AR.Drone?

The range of the AR.Drone depends on the environment in which it is being 
used: the range will be greater if the AR.Drone is used in a wide-open space 
with few Wi-Fi waves. For information, the average range is 50 meters / 160 
feet.

? How high can the AR.Drone fly?

Thanks to its many sensors, the AR.Drone can maintain stable flight at a 
height of up to 6 meters / 20 feet. Since the altitude at which the AR.Drone 
can fly depends exclusively on the Wi-Fi range, it can fly up to a height of 
50 meters / 160 feet.

The Altitude limited option in the AR.Drone's settings can be adjusted to 
restrict the height to 3 meters / 10 feet.

I have a SuperMicro 5015A-H (Atom 330 dual-core) coming in tomorrow.
I'm going to try RouterOS and Vyatta and see how BGP responds on each

Actually not true in many cases.

If the distance is really long beyond site, such as 20-30miles, I'd agree.
But if say LOS within 10 miles or so on a clear day, its pretty easy.

 

After our tech eye balls the alignment, I'll usually have the tech do a fine
align just in case we can improve it. BUt 9 out of 10 times, it was not
necessary and maybe we'll gain a half DB. 

 

The secret to aligning dishes is to look through the feed hole before the
feed is screwed in. (for example PAC wireless parabolic dish). You then home
in on the far side area aiming for, positionioned in cetner of hole, and
make sure the Ring around the hole appears equal size all around to verify
it is aligned.  Because the hole has metal around it that has DEPTH, maybe
1/4-1/2 inch, you can see the depth of this inside surface all around the
hole.  

 

As matter of fact, if we dont get our link budget acheieve and we need to
trouble shoot why, we check cables first, because the odds of having a bad
cable is higher than the tech getting the first alignment attempt wrong. 

 

Panels are harder to align, because looking from the side.

 

Sure it can be harder to align a big dish with radome that does not have a
removable feed.

You would need more people then.  You can't align the dish without both

 Its possible to prevent Squid from caching certain sites. Just create an

you choose.

 If you don't want your proxy requests sourced from a single IP then use
TProxy (http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/Tproxy4). With this your proxy

 Get a Cisco router and redirect traffic to Squid using WCCP. If your Squid

users continue to surf the web normally.

[WISPA] The Big Dog Talks

2010-09-01 Thread Chuck Profito

ATT: Net rules must allow 'paid prioritization'

by Declan McCullagh

  

ATT said Tuesday that any Net neutrality plan restricting its ability to
engage in paid prioritization of network traffic would be harmful and
contrary to the fundamental principles of the Internet.

Telecommunications providers need the ability to set different prices for
different forms of Internet service, ATT said, adding that it already has
hundreds of customers who have paid extra for higher-priority services.

Our view is that if the Federal Communications Commission is going to be
making policy decisions on this front, it should base them on the facts, as
opposed to dogma, an ATT representative told CNET on Tuesday. In a blog
post, ATT vice president Hank Hultquist argued that the Internet
Engineering Task Force's specifications specifically permit paid
prioritization.

The flap over paid prioritization started a few weeks ago when Free Press, a
pro-regulatory advocacy group, sent letters (No. 1 and No. 2) to the FCC
dubbing the concept discriminatory and claiming it will only benefit the
few content giants that have deep enough pockets to pay for favorable
treatment.

In a telephone interview on Tuesday, Free Press research director Derek
Turner said that allowing paid prioritization would undercut the entire
concept of Net neutrality, which had its previous legal foundation swept
away earlier this year when a federal appeals court shot down the FCC's
attempt to punish Comcast for temporarily throttling BitTorrent transfers.

Since that ruling, liberal interest groups have been lobbying FCC chairman
Julius Genachowski for a new set of regulations, while a majority of members
of the U.S. Congress has opposed the idea. Google and Verizon responded by
announcing their own proposal, which includes a presumption that paid
prioritization on wired networks is illegal.

A ban on paid prioritization is the DNA of the open Internet, Turner said.
He called ATT's arguments a straw man, saying that: What ATT is
describing is a practice that we have no problem with, which is that an end
user can buy a T1 and set priority flags, and ATT respects those priority
flags.

Prioritization 'expected'
But the designers of the protocols that make up the modern Internet had
something a bit more ambitious in mind. In the late 1990s, the Internet
Engineering Task Force revised those standards to allow network operators to
assign up to 64 different traffic classes, meaning priority levels.

Free Press wants to force consumers to be charged higher rates to pay for
the construction of more broadband infrastructure than would be needed if
networks could be better managed, says Berin Szoka, a senior fellow at the
Progress and Freedom Foundation, which has been critical of new broadband
regulations.

A July 1999 IETF specification (RFC 2638) discusses paid prioritization by
saying: It is expected that premium traffic would be allocated a small
percentage of the total network capacity, but that it would be priced much
higher. Another specification (RFC 2475) published half a year earlier says
that setting different priorities for packets will accommodate
heterogeneous application requirements and user expectations and permit
differentiated pricing of Internet service.

Today that concept of differentiated services is referred to as DiffServ.
It's part of quality-of-service technologies that companies like ATT offer,
usually to business customers, that rely on DiffServ packet headers to group
different types of classes of service together. Real-time voice
communication may be ranked the highest, followed by financial transactions,
then e-mail, and finally bulk file-transfer protocols that aren't as
sensitive to brief slowdowns.

It's true that DiffServ markings are typically used inside corporate
networks to support applications like VoIP. But a video-conferencing site
that has connectivity through ATT could presumably use DiffServ to
prioritize its packets over, say, online shopping and BitTorrent
transfers--and keep that priority all the way to an ATT home customer.

Which is precisely the argument that ATT is making. In a strongly-worded
letter (PDF) sent Monday to the FCC, ATT says that the protocol
specification in no way limits the use of DiffServ to packets marked by
'end users,' as opposed to content providers or network operators.

The (FCC) should view with healthy skepticism the opinions it receives on
technical Internet matters from an advocacy group with no demonstrable
expertise or operational experience in those matters, ATT's letter says.
Paid prioritization over Internet access is not, as Free Press maintains,
some lurking future menace that would pervert the intent of the IETF. To the
contrary, it was fully contemplated by the IETF.

Free Press' Turner disagrees. DiffServ was not designed to be a tool to
allow the network provider to drive application-level discrimination, he
says. He says that his organization will send a letter to the

Its tough to find Low cost DC inverter equipment that supports built-in
IP.

 

 Triplite makes an excellent line of Inverters, and they are affordable.
(come in 12v mailto:1...@v , 24V, and 48V), and can handle high amerage
charging and near unlimited load.

 

The problem is that these do NOT support IP type intelligence. There is a
physical port that can show some INverter detail, such as when running on
battery or not.

But this is a physical port that basically send voltage over one of the pins
to state the condition. It actually has a remote physical LED block that can
plug into that port.

IF someone took the time, they could make an adapter to connect that port to
a computers or SBC's serial or parallel port and write a small program to
read the pin voltage (on or off), and then use the SBC's SNMP or something
to enable the power state to be polled.  ONe way to get data on power
outages is to plug a small $40 SBC bypassing the Batteries directly to the
AC, then if that device is no longer pingable, you know no power is there.


 

 

Anyway, I use the Triplites now, but I as well, am looking for something of
similar spec quality that has IP built-in, to simplify and improve remote
monitoring.

With nearly all of our equipment being 24V DC, is anyone running their sites
off of batteries connected to an AC battery charger?  I'm envisioning
something like a solar setup, but instead of using solar panels to charge
the batteries, you use an AC-powered battery charger.  This would eliminate
the AC to DC to AC to DC conversion that a typical UPS setup would
introduce, making the efficiency far better and the run-times far longer.
I'm thinking I would like to do this (I need to revamp our UPSes everywhere
anyway) but am not sure of what pieces and parts I need or if this is a
terrible idea that I should run away from.

POE's.  The switch is not POE but external POEs plugged into a

Are there any devices which can interrupt the DC power via remote management

 I have about 15 customers I want to migrate to the new base

 3 km from the APs. I planned installing Loco M5 for closer
 clients and NS M5 for farther clients. I installed Loco M5
 for three close customers of about less than 1 km to the

 and installing Loco M5 has not been successful with them
 also, I tried NS M5 in one of the locations(about 2 km away
 from the AP)but no success. A total speed test of 36Mbps
 from customer location with rx of about 10 Mbps and tx of

 May I request for you technical support. I still plan to

Microsoft plans a mega-patch Tuesday 

This cycle never ends 

By Edward

  Berridge 

Fri Aug 06 2010, 09:53 

SOFTWARE COBBLER Microsoft plans to send out a record batch of 14 security 
updates next week to patch 34 vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer 
(IE), Office and Silverlight.

Eight of the 14 software updates are ranked as critical while the remaining 
six are marked as important.

The count of 34 individual patches equals the monthly record, which was first 
set last October and repeated in June 2010. Since eight of these are called 
critical that matches the previous record that the Vole set in October 2009.

It seems that the larger Microsoft updates are landing in even-numbered months 
and the smaller ones in odd numbered months. Thus we have the impression that 
patches are being sent out in numbers and on schedules that suit Microsoft's 
spinners in its PR department rather than its developers or customers.

According to Microsoft's monthly advance notification  
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms10-aug.mspx , the 
company will deliver 10 updates for Windows, half of them critical and the 
other five rated important. Two updates will patch one or more critical bugs in 
IE and Silverlight, while another pair will fix bugs in Microsoft Office.

All versions of Windows are involved, with Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) 
being the oldest to get a fix. Windows XP is affected by all five Windows-only 
critical updates, as well as by the critical Internet Exploder and Silverlight 
fixes.

Windows 7 is not completely unscathed either. Two of the five critical Windows 
updates apply to the Vole's newest operating system, as do the critical IE and 
Silverlight patches. All up Windows 7 will receive at least 10 of the 14 
planned updates. So much for being a superior operating system.

The Office updates are aimed at flaws in Word and Excel. Both updates also 
apply to the Mac editions of Word and Excel, even though Mac OS X is supposedly 
the most secure operating system in the world and never has a problem with 
malware. µ

Customer called a few minutes ago asking if she should Enable FIPS on her
Windows 7 net book.

 

HUH?

 

So I pull out one of our net books, go to Manage Wireless Connections, then
view the connections properties then Advanced (Microsoft buries
everything..)  and there is a checkbox for Enabling Federal Information
Processing Standards (FIPS).  

 

Dunno!  I tell her it's not a big deal, just leave it.  I'm not into the
FIPS, even the acronym sounds stupid.  I've read up on it a bit here the
past few minutes, what's the point of all this FIPS?

We have some open spots.  When tower usage spikes Tim starts looking. So
when we see an obvious offender, like a mac logged on for 2 days, we just
block him.  if we get a complaint, we'll turn it back on, but 98 times out
of 100, no complaints. Actually, Tim's batting 100% because I don't think we
have ever had a complaint from those open spots, except the P2P won't run! (

Chuck, were these other radios 802.11n?

I ask because pre 802.11n, multipath hurt the performance, as
802.11a/b/g were switched diversity (i.e. take the *best* signal and
ignore the other ones). Now that the 802.11n standard has MRC, all of
those signals are combined automagically (in theory, of course).

So, yes...Ruckus has the reputation of making some kickass antennas to
deal with multiplath, but I'm wondering if they can still maintain
that edge now that the standard is solidified by IEEE.  Put
differently, how smart are their antennas now that the standard does
a lot of what they were bragging about before?  Is their secret
sauce now simply a commodity?

 Since their beam forming is dynamic, I would expect it to work very well
 in that environment.

As Ruckus beamforming is based on selecting a receiver instead of
combining the signals, it should indeed deal with ducting but not too
well with multi-path.

 No Beam forming is expected from Ubiquity... just MIMO...

If Quantenna, Celeno or the other chip makers come up with a
cost-effective 802.11n beamforming solution, and they claim they will,
may be UBNT rethinks this issue.

Are you on the Promotion Committee?  These are all important inputs we 
need when we make decisions, it wasn't the board who decided, they

intention of having another summer show, we have learned a lot in this

If you don't have the time that's fine it's a dent in my summer schedule 
too and I'm not just going for the two days, but no incentive I think 
not, there is a lot of benefit going to this meeting.  I'm not sure 
asking what concerns there were was necessary unless to help people who 
needed help coming but to rehash minority views in a well documented 
series of surveys, webinars, and question/answer opportunities isn't 
productive, I hope to see you up front at our next attempt at this 
ongoing series.

 I went to the Dayton Hamvention, met some WISPA members, saw some great

 talked about before, a hook up with another similar event is the cool
thing
 for me.  No matter where it is.  I really don't care where but the

 Anyhow, just no time and no incentive in going.  Ticket price and hotel

 Subject: [WISPA] What are the Challenges?

 Members and WISP followers,



 We would like to better understand some of the challenges that many of you
 face on a daily basis as we continue to fine tune the Regional Meeting
 Agenda.  As you know the 1st Regional Meeting is scheduled for July 21st
and
 22nd in St. Louis. We have been pleasantly surprised at the response we
have
 received from vendors in our industry in committing to exhibit at our
 Regional Meeting.



 One thing we have noticed during the signup period is that many WISPs that
 are attending are traveling long distances to come to St. Louis in the
first
 stages of signup.  We originally picked St. Louis because of its central
 location in the US and because there are a tremendous amount of WISP
 companies throughout the Central US.  We really anticipated that 70% of
our
 attendees at this meeting would come from a 500 mile radius from St.
Louis.
 This does not seem to be the case and we find ourselves wondering why this
 to be the case.



 My first inclination is to blame it on weather.  I realize that weather in
 the Central US has been extremely volatile this summer with persistent
 storms continually moving across the region.  I am asking if this is
really
 the reason preventing many Midwestern WISPs from signing up for this
meeting
 or not.  If it is something else, I would like to investigate further.  We
 believe it is our obligation to the Vendors who have committed staff,
money
 and resources to attend the meeting, that we ask these tough questions.



 Our goal and the budget for the RM are based on a count of 200 attendees.
We
 are pretty sure we will reach this goal but if we are not going to get
 there, we need to start preparing now.  As you may or may not know, we do
 have a price increase of $50 per attendee beginning on July 1st.  It would
 be silly of me not to point this out to any prospective attendees.



 This week, we were able to negotiate a much nicer hotel and meeting
 facilities at the Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis.  The Renaissance
actually
 lowered its room rate surprisingly to $79 per night and threw in free

Possible but don't quit believe so since 900MHz GSM uses 890-914Mhz for
uplink (cell to base station), and 921-960Mhz for download (basestation to
cell). That strong signal wouldn't come from cells and the basestation would
just ruin the top part of the frequency. Maritime cell systems I seen don't
offer 3G type services and GSM gprs/edge channel size is 200khz. 4G will
have 4 to 20MHz dynamic channel size. 

Would really need to verify that the signal for sure is coming from the ship
and not somewhere else. 
If that is the case maybe look at getting hold of someone from the ship to
check with them what it might be. Don’t forget to shut down your own AP
while you run the SA at the AP location to avoid false readings and make
sure it's not actually something newly installed at that location.

 Since it came in, 900mhz within a couple miles of it has stopped
 working. We went out with the spectrum analyser after the Alvarion
 software spectrum analyzer went off the charts. The HP spectrum analyzer
 with a 9dbi yagi was picking up big fat gaussian shaped signals at -20
 to -25dbm about 10-15mhz wide in the middle. I sent my guys to a second
 location with the spectrum analyzer just to make sure they weren't
 seeing local interfernce and they saw the same thing. A legal amount of
 power output would cause it to come in at about -50.

 Anyone else seen such strange stuff coming from this type of ship? I've
 never seen any trouble from any ship ever, though this is the first
 drilling ship to visit our area.

Possible but don't quit believe so since 900MHz GSM uses 890-914Mhz for
uplink (cell to base station), and 921-960Mhz for download (basestation to
cell). That strong signal wouldn't come from cells and the basestation would
just ruin the top part of the frequency. Maritime cell systems I seen don't
offer 3G type services and GSM gprs/edge channel size is 200khz. 4G will
have 4 to 20MHz dynamic channel size. 

Would really need to verify that the signal for sure is coming from the ship
and not somewhere else. 
If that is the case maybe look at getting hold of someone from the ship to
check with them what it might be. Don’t forget to shut down your own AP
while you run the SA at the AP location to avoid false readings and make
sure it's not actually something newly installed at that location.

Re: [WISPA] interference from ships

2010-06-19 Thread Chuck Profito
yes Greg, we used to think a Smart Bridge was the Cat's Meow then the CB3
came out! :-)

Since that's an exploration drilling ship, I'll bet it's some sort of sub
surface positioning radar/ sonar/ or some such,  linked to the thrusters and
gps to keep it on position. I wonder if it could be worse in the water? But
a mile away, sideways, that would be a lot of water to penetrate with a side
lobe, or even reflect.   Could they call the harbor master and ask him to
contact the Capt or 1st officer.

That's funny. That article claims that  Below 900 MHz the target radar
cross section increases exponentially, however the increased radar cross
section means that there is much more radar return from undesirable sources,
such as cloud cover and rain (cf. weather radar). but when I worked on
ships we used S and X band radars. The S band (lower frequency) was better
in the rain and usually had better range, but the X band gave more detailed
and sharper images (such as a more accurate and realistic representation of
the coastline, and a more accurate representation of the size of boats and
ships) but it had more problems with rain clutter.

I guess that's why Wikipedia is free. You get what you pay for.

the requirements for a very limited budget and power consumption, issues 
of remote deployments, long distance microwave links over the ocean, 
sensitivity to the largest breeding colony the contiguous United States.

Additional network topics will be the requirement to support various 
services on the island via VLANs, fiber deployment to overcome distance 
and lightning, RF path calculations, tuning of the radio modulations 
schemes to provide the best up-time and remote support of a location 
that may only be accessible once a month.

Re: [WISPA] MicroTik HWMPplus mesh?

Look at one of our vendor members, higher cost than roll your own, but
everything in one box, server, radius, etc., etc.  It may prove to be a
lower cost for a difficult start up and difficult area, leading to better
customer satisfaction and word of mouth advertising, faster ROI and

Subject: [WISPA] MicroTik HWMPplus mesh?

First off, I'd like to say hello to the list.  Mike Hammett pointed 
me at it a couple of weeks ago, after I posted a wireless-related 
question (wireless in the trees) at isp-clec, and he reposted it 
here.  This list is a lot more active... I've been reading the past 
few months archives and it's really quite informative.

I'm a consultant working with competitive service providers all over 
the place.  I don't run a WISP but some clients do.  I am working now 
with a startup that wants to serve some unserved (no cable or DSL, 
just long-loop POTS/dial-up) remote territory which is about to get 
middle mile service to the nearest city (year-round pop. 10,000, 
but it's big for the area) thanks to a stimulus grant.

The unserved last mile area covers a strip about 5 to 30 miles from 
the backbone point.  It's the RF environment from hell:  Heavily 
wooded and hilly.  The most valuable strip of land is a long narrow 
beachfront strip a block or so wide, with a palisade (steep wooded 
hill) blocking it from the rest of the area.  Plus it's convex 
(curves out into the big lake) so your line of sight within the 
beachside strip is very small.  So in most places on the waterfront 
there's not even cellular service, since the cell sites are over the 
rim.  No WISP is crazy enough to go there.  My clients and I, 
however, are unusually crazy... why else would we be in the 
communications business?

Given that environment, there only way to get to most of the 
subscribers is via multiple hops.  We'd come down to the beach in at 
least two points near the ends, maybe in the middle too, and build 
microwave rings.

I don't see how this could work with any of the canned mesh 
solutions.  Most, like SkyPilot, only mesh at 5.8 Ghz, and there are 
some paths that are just too woody for that to work.  Some of the 
subscriber access sites may need 900 too.  I think each RF path and 
local-coverage cell will have to be engineered to local conditions.

What looks to be the most flexible approach might be to use the 
MicroTik Routerboard multi-radio mPCI systems.  Then we can use 
off-the-shelf 5.8 GHz cards and PtP antennas for the clear paths, and 
plug in the Ubiquiti XR9 or similar high-power 900 radio for tree 
blasting.  User access would probably be sectorized at whatever band works.

MicroTik says they have a meshing protocol, HWMPplus, that provides 
Layer 2 (this is critical; we're not building a Layer 3 network, and 
with this many hops, latency and loss are critical) dynamic meshing, 
essentially applying a routing protocol (smarter than bridge STPs) 
among nodes.  I can't find any documentation for it on line, though, 
and a distributor I've been talking to has never tried or sold 
it.  So does anyone on the list have any experience with the HWMPplus 
mesh?  Or any other suggestions?  Thanks!

Acer Aspire One to be precise, running windows xp, using the normal wifi

So, I decided to see what it was associated to, and it was another access

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

this is the longest, by far, I have been able to get a real connection, dhcp

 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.

 I would like to know if it's possible to back up the entire RouterOS

 Astaro or Untangle) but I don't want to lose the RouterOS license,
 and I would also like to have the computer ready to go back in
 service with RouterOS should the RB750 fail (I lost one to lightning
 before adding lightning protection). Understand I am not trying to
 pirate RouterOS or do anything which is contrary to the terms of the
 license. I just want to use the machine for something else, with the
 possibility of reverting back to RouterOS if the RB750 which replaced
 it should fail. If I didn't live in the jungle of South America I'd
 run down to Best Buy and pick up another SATA hard drive and use that
 for the other OS. But I only have one drive so I'm looking at imaging
 the drive with RouterOS on it and keep
 tha
 t image safe so I can use the hard drive for something else. Should
 this work? Any advice would be appreciated.

ATT will be redoing the pricing plans for I Phone and I Pad   charging a
fee plus overages.  
  There's good news for existing iPad and iPhone users who feel that the
new plans will cost them more: ATT said existing ATT customers --
including the 50 million iPhone and iPad users in the United States -- have
the option of sticking with their old $30 unlimited plan.

Hello,

We are getting more Delivery Resource Unavailable errors from the
Everyone.net SMTP servers today. This is on both shared-svc1 and
shared-svc2. We would like help on why this is happening, and why we have
issues sending email intermittently.

I know for a fact this is an issue with the everyone.net servers;  the error
message is being returned from the servers themselves, after an SMTP session
has been established. See the attached image; that is the error message
coming from Everyone.net's servers. 

We didn't have many issues from this in April, but it was a nightmare
earlier in the year. When email does not work, it makes it very difficult to
do business. I am sure you understand our frustrations. So far, all
suggestions given to us from Everyone.net have not worked. We have exhausted
all potential options on our ends for reasons that we could be causing the
errors. We have used different workstations, different operating systems,
different mail clients, different ISPs, different email domains. We have
even used different SMTP servers per your suggestion.

When we use third-party SMTP servers we do not have this problem, ever.
However, that is not a long-term solution. Please advise. Also, please look
at the attached image. This is the type of error message we get, frequently,
with both shared-svc1 and now shared-svc2.

Hello, and welcome!.  
You may want to join WISPA as soon as possible. It will be the best money
you spend before opening the doors.  Membership will help you and your new
business in many ways; low legal filings, many forms and contracts available
for download, the list archives are worth the whole membership,
representation in Washington DC, and the private members only list, where we
have very frank discussions, Your State list, VoIP list, fiber list,
MicroTeck list, Canopy list, etc.etc.
And don't forget our Vendor discounts just for members. It is another place
you can recoup the cost of membership almost immediately! 
And I forgot the new Wiki!

Anyway, Welcome to the miracle of microwave and hopefully WISPA.org can
help explain it!

why not just two TV rotor motors mounted in a cross. Or use a ham rotor on
bottom and light channel master on top. The pole could go thru it so you
could mount a wireless zoom camera to the other side for balance and LOS
convenience. or put Horiz on one side and Vertical on the other, and don't
forget the camera in the middle.  you could be the local loco wisp reporter

Re: [WISPA] Does anybody have any ideas?

Forbes, 
Hope the rest of the list doesn't think I'm nuts:
Do you see any large, hi gain CB or Ham beam antennas or Truckers from the
southern area parked or loading nearby?
Within say 1/4 mile of B tower?  The new mobile 70KW class C Linear's are
about as dirty as they come. Some of those 
drivers from Mexico and AZ are talking direct, no skip, 500 miles on the
lower vertical channels.  That much bleed over 
in radiated power may trip ground on your switch and or MT boards. It could
come right thru your tower grounding, let alone your antennas and CAt5.
Could you try batteries there? Say a smart charger thru a UPS, then to
batteries.   i.e. no common ground.

We have been plagued with an ongoing issue in our Mikrotik backhauls.  
It happens about once a month and only on three radios that feed each 
other, all other sites work fine.  Site A is my head end, it is a 
Mikrotik 433 with an XR5 chip that feeds about five miles to another 
site to Site B.  Site B has the same equipment that goes through a 
managed switch then passes on to Site C about 7 miles further.

What happens is we are suddenly paged that all three are down.  
Sometimes Site A stays up, most times not, we can get into Site A since 
it's the head end and we reboot it, it comes right back up.  Site B and 
C stay down, we have to drive to Site B and reboot it, it comes back up 
but Site C stays down.  We have a remote reboot for it from a redundant 
feed so after rebooting it C reconnects to B and they are all up.  This 
will happen three or four more times in a single day or not at all again 
for a month, it's totally unpredictable. The boards are up but not 
communicating, it also takes down the other 2.4 Mikortik AP's at Site B 
and that has to be rebooted.  We normally run arp -d to clear up any 
residual, it sure appears to be traffic related and we are on a bridged 
not routed network.

The only similarities is it's only this feed, it usually happens in 
spurts of a day or two then stops for a long time, it always happens 
during the working day leading me to believe it's coming from a day 
user.  We run Wireshark but see nothing, we torch the towers and they 
don't show much unusual.  We're thinking it might be a deluge of traffic 
between Site B and C and are thinking of putting a PC at the C tower to 
run diagnostics there.  This is very manpower heavy as we have to send 
people two places and average down time is one hour to do this.  We are 
going to turn our network into a routed network this Summer but that 
doesn't help now.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

[WISPA] RIVERSIDE NEEDS YOU

2010-03-14 Thread Chuck Profito
ATT Wants to Dump Riverside Network on City

One of the legacy muni-Fi networks will have new (or no) owners: Esme Vos
writes at MuniWireless.com about the current state of the Riverside, Calif.,
network operated by ATT. The network was the first and only bid by ATT
with MetroFi, which was unable to complete that network along with many
others, and which shut down in 2008. In Riverside, ATT kept up much of its
end of the bargain, hiring Nokia Siemens to complete the network, which Vos
says only reached 77 percent of the city. (One expects there's no SkyPilot
gear left in place, either, but I don't know that for sure.)

The network has 20,000 daily users out of a population of about 300,000 (in
2000); the county has over 2.1 million residents.

ATT wants to give the city the network at no cost, but the city is facing
revenue shortfalls like the rest of the country (and most of the world).
It's trying to get a federal grant.

Of the networks originally built in part or whole by EarthLink, Kite, and
MetroFi, only a handful remain in operation. Philadelphia recently moved to
take over the remains of the network there from an interim firm that had
been planning to build out a variety of access services.

Re: [WISPA] iPhone ssh app

2010-03-12 Thread Chuck Profito
I have found that using the app Mocha VNC, is much easier than using the
others I have tried. just VNC back to your computer and or server and you
have ALL your tools.  But if the back haul is dead, net book / lap top time.
But I do find I very seldom pull them out.

Yeah, I haven't found tethering to make all that much sense either. My gf
has her iPhone jail broken, but honestly, I think she does it just because
she can...I haven't seen her do anything with it that actually mattered. I
haven't had a problem doing anything I needed (or wanted) to do without jail
breaking.

I also have a Droid at the moment, but damn, I'll tell you, it's a annoying
as hell in comparison. And I really hate the little feedback vibration every
time I touch one of the permanent keys (maybe that can be turned off-I
haven't taken the time to delve too much into the options yet). I'll keep
using it for a few more days but so far it doesn't compare, even though
Verizon's 3G coverage IS a little but broader out this way (but, it's not as
much broader as I'd thought it was supposed to be).

However, if I didn't have the iPhone as an option, I'd probably love the
Droid. Sure beats what I used to use, even if it doesn't quite meet (for me)
the iPhone standards. As always with this kind of thing, I'm sure YMMV.

 But around here I don't have 3g available, so ATT is slow for the

 I then thought that I could just use a wi-fi connection (surly I could 
 find one of those!) but then I thought, you big dummy, if I can get a 
 wi-fi connection on the phone to tether to the laptop then I could just 
 connect to the wi-fi with the laptop ;)
 
 So I dont't think I really need tethering.

  than ISPCon.  As both a Vendor and an ISP member, shows like ISPCon
  don't have the intimacy like a smaller show does.  I could care less
if
  it is in Vegas, or some other place, so long as it provides:
  
  1) A chance to meet with other companies in our industry, large,
 medium,

  2) A chance to meet with other vendors and work with their special

  in the market, and have those vendors be WISPA member vendors, not

  3) A highspeed internet connection to make sure I can stay in touch

  4) Close to the airport, reasonable accommodations, and good food is a

  Obama Surrendering Internet to Foreign Powers

  By: Bradley A. Blakeman
 
  Without the ingenuity of America's brightest minds and the investment of
  U.S. taxpayer dollars, there would be no Internet, as we now know it
 today.
 
  Now, the Obama administration has moved quietly to cede control of the
 Web
  from the United States to foreign powers.
 
  Some background: The Internet came into being because of the genius work
 of
  Americans Dr.Robert E. Kahn and Dr. Vinton G. Cerf. These men, while
  working
  for the Department of Defense in the Defense Advanced Research Projects
  Agency in the early 1970s, conceived, designed, and implemented the idea
 of
  open-architecture networking.
 
  This breakthrough in connectivity and networking was the birth of the
  Internet.
 
  These two gentlemen had the vision and the brainpower to create a
 worldwide
  computer Internet communications network that forever changed the world
 and
  how we communicate in it.
 
  They discovered that providing a person with a unique identifier
  (TCP/IP)that was able to be recognized and interact through a network of
  servers would allow users to communicate with others.
 
  The servers woulduse a series of giant receivers to recognize the
  identifier
  and connect networks to networks, passing on information from computer
to
  computer in a seamless real-time exchange of information. This new
 process
  of communication became know as the information super highway, aka,
the
  Internet.
 
  Now for the bad news: In an effort to show the world how inclusive,
  sharing,
  cooperative, and international America can be, the Obama administration
 set
  off on a plan to surrender control and key management of the Internet by
  the
  U.S. Department of Commerce and its agents.
 
  The key to the control America has over the Internet is through the
  management of the Domain Name System (DNS) and the giant servers that
  service the Internet.
 
  Domain names are managed through an entity named IANA, the Internet
  Assigned
  Numbers Authority. The IANA, which operates on behalf of the U.S.
  Department
  of Commerce, is responsible for the global coordination of the DNS, IP
  addressing, and other Internet protocol resources.
 
  In short, without an IP Address or other essential Internet protocols, a
  person or entity would not have access to the Internet.
 
  For years, the international community has been pressuring the United
  States
  to surrender its control and management of the Internet. They want an
  international body such as the United Nations or even the International
  Telecommunications Union, (an entity that coordinates international
  telephone communications), to manage all aspects of the Internet in
 behalf
  of all nations.
 
  The argument advanced for those seeking international control of the
  Internet is that the Internet has become such a powerful, pervasive, and
 a
  dependent form of international communications, that it would be
 dangerous
  and inequitable for any one nation to control and manage it.
 
  Just this past spring, within months of Obama's taking office, his
  administration, through the Department of Commerce, agreed to relinquish
  some control over IANA and their governance. The Obama administration
has
  agreed to give greater representation to foreign companies and countries
 on
  IANA.
 
  This amounts to one small step for internationalism

They discovered that providing a person with a unique identifier
(TCP/IP)that was able to be recognized and interact through a network of
servers would allow users to communicate with others.

The servers woulduse a series of giant receivers to recognize the identifier
and connect networks to networks, passing on information from computer to
computer in a seamless real-time exchange of information. This new process
of communication became know as the information super highway, aka, the
Internet.

Now for the bad news: In an effort to show the world how inclusive, sharing,
cooperative, and international America can be, the Obama administration set
off on a plan to surrender control and key management of the Internet by the
U.S. Department of Commerce and its agents.

The key to the control America has over the Internet is through the
management of the Domain Name System (DNS) and the giant servers that
service the Internet.

Domain names are managed through an entity named IANA, the Internet Assigned
Numbers Authority. The IANA, which operates on behalf of the U.S. Department
of Commerce, is responsible for the global coordination of the DNS, IP
addressing, and other Internet protocol resources.

In short, without an IP Address or other essential Internet protocols, a
person or entity would not have access to the Internet.

For years, the international community has been pressuring the United States
to surrender its control and management of the Internet. They want an
international body such as the United Nations or even the International
Telecommunications Union, (an entity that coordinates international
telephone communications), to manage all aspects of the Internet in behalf
of all nations.

The argument advanced for those seeking international control of the
Internet is that the Internet has become such a powerful, pervasive, and a
dependent form of international communications, that it would be dangerous
and inequitable for any one nation to control and manage it.

Just this past spring, within months of Obama's taking office, his
administration, through the Department of Commerce, agreed to relinquish
some control over IANA and their governance. The Obama administration has
agreed to give greater representation to foreign companies and countries on
IANA.

This amounts to one small step for internationalism and one giant leap for
surrendering America's control over an invention we have every right and
responsibility to control and manage.

It is in America's economic and national security interests not to
relinquish any control. We are responsible for the control, operation, and
functionality of one of the modern world's greatest inventions and most
powerful communications network.

What better country to protect the Internet than the United States?

We invented it, and we paid for the research and implementation that made it
possible. We are the freest, most tolerant nation on earth, we believe in
the
fundamental right of free speech, and we practice a free market of commerce
and ideas.

America has always been against censorship and has shared its invention with
the world without fee or unreasonable or arbitrary restriction. The user fee
to operate on the Internet is not one paid to the U.S. government; a
consumer pays it to private Internet companies, who provide access to the
Internet through servers for their subscribers.

Look no further than China's recent move against Google to censor the
Internet, and you can envision what can happen when other nations less free
than the United States seek to control the Internet beyond even their own
borders.

America needs to wake up. If we lose control over the management of the
Internet, we have given away one of our nation's greatest assets with
nothing
in return to show for it.

The Obama administration's actions will set in motion a slow and complete
takeover of the Internet by the United Nations or some other equally
U.S.-hostile and unfriendly international body. And

Subject: Re: [WISPA] AirGrids

Well, first off I talked to Ben over at UBNT last night and he said they are
changing the design with the next batch so that the LEDs are down facing.

The issue is, there are two locking tabs that snap in for either horizontal
or vertical polarization so you are limited to how it's oriented.  The
antenna feed is one part and it snaps into the feed retainer that is
attached to the grid.  The retainer protrudes through the rear of the grid
and ends with the port for the Cat5 to enter and a couple of small drain
holes.  These are not on the very end but on a flat spot on the bottom of
the retainer.  Flip the antenna so that the LEDs are facing down then the
drain holes and Cat5 entry hole is now facing UP.  The old, Damned if you
do and damned if you don't

But they are fixing the issue.  One of those things they can't see unless
they are in the field.  I'm sure the lights being up made sense sitting in
an office looking at the thing from above.  If I'm looking at an antenna
from above, I'm either high up on a tower or I'm trying to install it in a
hole.  :)

I played with the 65 foot cable limit last night too.  Used a 100' cable and
the USB PoE will power it but just enough for the lights to come on, no
communication with it.  Tried a 9v, 12v and a 15v PoE.  9 and 12 worked fine
but the 15V made it yell at me.  I settled on a 9V injector and my test unit
has been working fine since last night.  Ben said the PoE they will be
offering as an option starts out at 5V.  I asked for a possible chart from
them on suggested voltage VS. cable length so we don't fry them out of trial
and error.  He mentioned they are working on design to allow it to use the
24v PoE...   I'm actually thinking of swapping out a pac grid and MT box
back haul from a solar site to see how the power drain is from these since
they require such a low voltage.

In all, I installed 2 last night and they were great!  The mounting hardware
is beefy and says quality.  The unit doesn't feel clunky at all, unlike
most of the Pac Wireless grids and the install went fast with the radio and
grid being just one unit.  The first install took a whole 20 minutes
including running the cable and drilling a hole.  Of course it was a cable
run of only 50 feet, not a big job, but was still quick.  

I'm sold on them.

Still gotta use the Mikrotik though, the Dude server rocks.

Installing some UBNT AirGrids this weekend.   First thing I see is that
when
I assemble for horizontal polarity the LED strip is now facing UP, as in
looking at the sky.  Not able to see the power light from the ground or any
RSSI.  Second issue, we all know the water issue with the new bullets,
getting in through the LED strip.  In horizontal, the strip is facing up.
Makes more sense to face it all down.  I also see a need to wrap with tape
where the feed and the feed support meet.  

 

Just first impressions.

Something similar happened a month ago to us.  Our local canopy competitor
sent out a new installer to a subs home to pick up their equipment(in a box

removed it  the mount!   They were very apologetic.  So we picked up the

Heya Tracy,

Turns out this was a misunderstanding.  The equipment that got stolen was 
the CPE at the office in TOWN, not the solar site out in the sticks.

Not sure how those wires got crossed, but the solar sit is still working 
well.

We did see the cpe come online for a few seconds since we figured this out 
though.  It'll be interesting to see if we can figure out how to track down 
who stole it :-).

Subject: [WISPA] This comes up again and again - value of network

There's a guy started a small network in an area I serve, but quite distant 
from me, and he's wanting to get out.

He offered to sell me his customers and his network, and then finally he 
quoted me a price for his network.Not the customers but just the 
network and the customer owns his own cpe.I buy the network and inherit

his customers - that was the deal.

It works out to $500 / customer.

For infrastructure, that seems... well... REALLY high to me.

It consists MOSTLY of UBNT stuff and some bandwidth controls, etc, I don't 
really understand.   It's mostly bridged, and has no public IP's, it was 
apparently NAT'd to a cable connection somewhere.

Looking at my rural deployments and the approximate cost- even of the 
solar/wind powered sites...   I'm well under $100/customer for network 
infrastructure outside of the CPE.

Am I the one way different, or is he?   Or, is this wide range  normal?
