Who says the guy on the front side of the paycheck isn't making money?

The more I see what goes on out there, the more I'm convinced that some 
people are just really good at spending others money.  It doesn't matter if 
they turn a profit or not, as long as those original funders get their money 
back out, no one cares about the rest of the investors.


Think about it, given the chance, how many of us would take on a job that 
could put a million or three in our bank accounts even though, in the end we 
knew we were destined to fail.  Guys like me will try to talk the money 
people into a better idea, some out there though, will say Sure thing, I'll 
get right on that project!


I think the stock market and the futures markets are two of the most 
sinister industries out there.  They manipulate far more of the average 
person's life than they ever should.  About the only things worse are 
elected officials and trial lawyers :-)

Retire to me, sounds like they paid of the $3.5M, not cheated someone 
out of it.


Of course, seeing it is a publicly traded company, those who bought 
their stock at much higher price at IPO, on speculation, and thats what 
it really is, speculation, are the ones who took the bath.


I don't really see anyone getting cheated, at least in the conventional way.

We all should be so lucky to get to play in that game.

U.S. Wireless Online is a conglomeration. Originally it was started by
buying at bankruptcy the assets of late firms like Darwin Networks. A
few years later they merged with Air2LAN (Jai Baghat's old company) out
of Jackson, MS. They then rolled up a number of WISPs. So they got old
MY customers, some Wi-Fi customers, some hotspot business, some
traditional WISP business, etc. Lots of different brands in there,
including us among many others.

So I suppose it'd be tricky to get a good count that we easily compare
with WISP pure play type business.

I don't consider FHSS broadband grin  Allen quickly moved to broadband
fixed wireless gear like Trango, WMUX among others.

Yes, MobilePro bought ShreveNet along with Kite and a few others.
MobilePro's first acquisition was NationWide Internet...primarily a
conventional ISP with little wireless.  We are very familiar with MobilePro.

Wrong. Allen ran Alvarion for years. Here are a few posts to prove it:
From 2001:
However, the retrans are hitting around 20%-30%.  I can't figure out
what the problem could be.

Lots to check out..

First make sure Max Rate is set to 1Mbps.  The reason is that your 89-91
RSSI falls in the 1Mbps threshold:

RSSI  108 3Mbps
95  RSSI  1082Mbps
RSSI  95  1Mbps

Some of those retrans might be the radio making futile attempts to try 2
and 3Mbps..  So make sure Multirate is enabled and Max Rate is set no
higher than the RSSI will allow.

Second log into the radio and go to 4) Site Survey then 1) Traffic
Statistics and 1) Display Counters..  Midway you will see something like
this:

  Total tx errors  :1
 (H/W: 0, ABR: 0, CSL: 0, ACKTOUT: 0)
 (FAIL: 0, ACKCRC: 0, RTSC: 0, EOD: 1)

These 8 error types tell the whole story..  CSL errors means there is
lots of noise in the area and the radio is having a hard time finding
clean air to transmit into..  ACKTOUT is if your Ack Delay is set wrong
(low for a few miles, med for up to 9 miles, and high for double digit
distances).  RTSC is the booger..  That is a RTS Collision in theory (if
everything else is perfect in the RF link).
But anything can cause a RTSC from a badly engineered link to water in a
connector..  In general, it means either the client or AP is having a
hard time hearing one another - someone is not responding..
If you drive down CSL errors, RTSC errors can go down too.  That is,
there is a relationship between these errors..  A good start is to read
the manual's brief explanation of the error types..  Then start on CSL
errors and save RTSC errors for last in your attack plan..

MobilePro's first acquisition was NationWide Internet...primarily a

 Sorry to hear that you are having problems also, but I have the exact

 questions.. how many customers are you running.  I cleared up a lot
of
 problems but limiting a few customers uploads.
 
 Another example of hidden node

Hidden node..  my god

It's all in the error counters.. This is one of the big benefits of
using BAII.. It will tell you what the problem is unlike most WLAN gear
that just basically say error causing a restransmission and little
more.

Are the retrans caused primarily by RTS collisions? CRC errors? CTS
errors?
AckDelay? You typically don't get this level of detail from most gear..

The counters tell if you if the problem is on the LAN side, WAN side,
due to interference, due to a bad cable, due to bad LOS issues, etc.

Observe and learn to read the 4-1-1 screen to see what is going on..
See: http://www.wispfaq.com/searchfaq.html?id=53

Hidden node...  Jeez Charles..  If you would just act with a little
more principle, I bet more folks (like me) would have more confidence
in you...  I suppose Karlnet is the solution to these two folks
problems?!  Why even reply to an Alvarion post as a vendor if you
don't even sell Alvarion?

Does this sound like hidden node?

 One day everything is fine, about 1 1/2 weeks ago things started
 happening

Jeez..  Sorry but hidden node doesn't suddenly hit you out of the blue!

Then they are clueless is all.  Its not because they spent money

years ago.  Very nice and expensive.  It is now loaded up. We have
only lost 2 wireless users in our whole career, at this is in the
heart of both DSL and Roadrunner territory.

It is not enough to simply spend a bunch of money or even to build
a good network.  A good network is living and breathing and it must
be maintained, monitored, groomed, expanded, and all sorts of time
consuming activities..  And that is only the beginning!  ;-)  (won't
mention email and tech support)

The revenue off this single $25k POP is now close to that figure
every month FWIW and is one of the sweetest investments I've ever
made.  My only regret is not building 10 of them...

Nice job of cherry picking posts Patrick.  I am impressed!

I stand corrected that Allen was more of an Alvarion shop than I remember.
I largely recall our Trango discussions and I believe Allen and I even
exchanged Trango product once upon a time.  My how time flys.

Hang tight there Brad, according to that post, Allen, who was flipping 
me attitude, exposed that he was 55% Alvarion and 45% non. +/-


He certainly was leaning towards Trango and I remember when Trango upped 
the prices and let Charles and the others handle end sales, he was kinda 
pissed and ranted.


Sound familiar?

So he was linking Trango at that time, and MT as well.

US Wireless made a big announcement last year about teaming with Lightyear
Network, also based in Louisville to bring wireless and VOIP to the world.
It lasted about 4-6 months then fell apart. US Wireless is good at making
big announcements but nothing much has materialized as of yet. 

They mainly focus on commercial accounts only and have cellular service as
well. I have been watching US Wireless closely for the last year. I guess if
you have one tower in 18 big cities, you can claim what they claim??

Are they the company that bought Allen M. 's WISP? As I recall he was an
Alvarion shop

 U.S. Wireless Online is a conglomeration. Originally it was started by 
 buying at bankruptcy the assets of late firms like Darwin Networks. A 
 few years later they merged with Air2LAN (Jai Baghat's old company) 
 out of Jackson, MS. They then rolled up a number of WISPs. So they got 
 old MY customers, some Wi-Fi customers, some hotspot business, some 
 traditional WISP business, etc. Lots of different brands in there, 
 including us among many others.
 
 So I suppose it'd be tricky to get a good count that we easily compare 
 with WISP pure play type business.

 Operational Management and Support Services to be Provided by

 LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. 2, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- US Wireless Online, 
 one of the nation's largest wireless broadband network operators, 
 announced today that it has completed the sale of a 50.1% ownership 
 stake to Sutioc Enterprises, Inc.

 In conjunction with the transaction, which closed on December 27,
 2006,
 Sutioc has entered into an agreement with IElement Corporation, Inc. 
 whereby IElement will provide certain management and support services
 to
 US Wireless. As part of the agreement, IElement will provide out
 sourced
 customer service, technical support, network management, accounting, 
 billing and collection services as well as act as an advisor to US 
 Wireless' current management team. IElement is a nationwide provider
 of

 At the time of the sale, Sutioc and US Wireless were able to retire
 over
 $3.5 million in US Wireless' debt.

 US Wireless also expects to quickly benefit from efficiencies
 resulting
 from the transactions including the ability to streamline its
 operations
 and reduce administrative and operational costs. In addition, US 
 Wireless will soon be able to offer its current and new customers a 
 complete suite of voice and data products and services through 
 IElement's product offering.

 ``The combination of US Wireless' organization and network facilities 
 with IElement's management experience, infrastructure, broad product 
 range and service capability should significantly improve the
 Company's
 competitive position,'' commented Rick E. Hughes, CEO of US Wireless 
 Online, Inc. ``We look forward to working with Sutioc and IElement.

As far as I know all their wireless gear was removed from New Orleans about
4 months ago. It cleared up a few channells that were much needed. I was
suprised that they just unplugged everything instead of trying to sell the
clients. My phone was ringing like crazy for a little while.

Hey Joe. Can you give us an update on what is going on down your way? 
Are you selling  a bunch of connections? What gear are you deploying? 
How well is the area recovering? Any information is appreciated.

Cheers,
Scriv
