I would echo Pauls sentiments, exactly. StarOS has been great for me, and seems to get the most out of the hardware that I run it on. I have some WAR boards, but they are not in production yet - I'm waiting for v3 to be ported over before putting them up. There are three things that I

Matt/Paul/Others: Thanks for the flow of info. What hardware is preferred to run the StarOS on? Most interested in the AP, but for CPE as well? I'm highly interested in bandwidth shaping and routing at the AP, and if routing is available at the sector, then bonus. Does the StarOS at the AP

FYI. You do NOT have 3 dB of connector loss unless you are totally screwing up the connectors. The actual loss is something like .1 dB of loss per connector. I usually count them as 0 just to be safe. Also, you've surely noticed that Vivato just folded up shop. The product never really
