[WISPA] Switch recommendations

2006-02-25 Thread Pete Davis
I was wondering what switch has the largest mac address table. I don't need more than 6 ports, but the $19.95 cheapy switches that my AP Bridges all go into might be hurting my performance, I am thinking. If shelling out $100 or so for a good switch makes sense, I am willing to get one, but I

OLSR does put its handshaking on the sectors, but you are right, no data traffic goes down that alternate until the primary fails. The changeover is typically within 15 to 30 seconds. The other cool thing is being able to add ADSL backups into the system, at various spots (could be T1, cable,

Dell seems to make switches that deliver good performance for the cheap price you pay. Whenever we don't need the capabilities of a Cisco switch, but want something managable that won't fall down we go with Dell. -Matt Pete Davis wrote: I was wondering what switch has the largest mac address

There has been so much talk about this, I might be inclined to help the FCC find those WISPs that are snubbing their noses at the law. This is a professional list and those here should be abiding by the law. I wonder if it would be a good thing to kick out those that promote illegal activities?

We are still waiting to deply Cisco mesh, so I can't vouch for it *yet*. We will be installing for the City of Gilroy Ca. probably in the next 4 weeks. This is currently only a partial deployment, but they plan on lighting the whole city. I can tell you that the equipment is expensive -$3500

Yes, unfortunately, the Cisco mesh is only using 5.8 for backhaul right now. Since they recommend 16-18 mesh boxes per square mile, 5.25 GHz and up would be a much better choice John -Original Message- From: Jack Unger [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Wednesday, February 22, 2006

I don't think WISPA should police WISPs. The organization does encourage conforming to FCC regs, and we've seen numerous postings from Marlon and others answering difficult rule interpretation. That's the best focus for our energies as a WISP organization - that is; making FCC links and docs

Do you report people to the authorities for not wearing their seat belts? How about for speeding? Both of those can result in direct harm to people. Filing or not filing form 477 will not directly harm anyone. It might result in the non filer getting in trouble. But that is HIS or HER
