I use ferrite beads for the same reason. Sometimes I use 2; one at the radio and one right before the cables enter the house. DO NOT put them on a ground wire since that's where you want the lightning's current to go. Because its current has such a fast rise and fall time, lightning behaves

I'm just sayin'... That if we (er, you guys, I am not a member) come at these folks with: we have XXX number of players that want on your towers. What sales-droid do we need to talk to? Can we make a wispa package to make it easier for the sales-droid to hit his numbers? Then perhaps

Good point - also,I forgot to mention the other reason I lost so many CPE's - don't leave a big roll if extra cable - that lowers the impedance. On 10/8/06, Jason [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I use ferrite beads for the same reason.Sometimes I use 2; one at theradio and one right before the cables

The fact you say it's a nice radio is encouraging, Tom, for me since I'm considering deploying it. But it would still be nice to hear from one or two wISP's who can say yeah, I have one installed; it's working fine, or whatever the feedback is. Anyone??? Mario Tom DeReggi wrote: It

[WISPA] Welding Cable For Grounding?

2006-10-08 Thread KyWiFi LLC
Anyone used a welding cable for a tower ground? We have ran across a really good deal on 2 and 4 guage welding cable and would like to use it for grounding of our upcoming sites in place of the 2 guage copper wire we've been buying from Lowe's. It is composed of many very fine copper strands which

Ok I didn't realize that you where utilizing the WDS station mode. So you basically have a normal AP/station setup but it is just bridged. Are you using N-stream? The WDS-station mode really was designed so that N-stream could be used on a WDS / Bridge network. WDS - station is a

2) My primary goal in the original post was to learn the difference between Wifi Station/client and Wifi WDS at the protocol level on how the protocol makes communications. For example, can they both do CTS/RTS? Unless the WDS protocol is fully understood, its not possible to design networks

I would not be happy about the $29.95 fee. If you can get away with it go right ahead. I look at it the customer is betting $29.95 that they can get service. I would rather have it here if they can get service, and they don't then they are charged $29.95. If they can't get service why

I would not even consider charging for a site survey. Way too many possibilitys for bad press. I simply consider it a cost of doing business. Rarely do we have someone decline service if it can be done at our $199/$299 install rate. I have declines on the $799+ installs, but I expect
