Go get some Canopy client radios for $260 each, complete - check the performance, ease to install and setup. We did homebrew for quite a while and it has its downside as we're seeing. Just my opinion. You get a nice spectrum analyzer built-in, 2 minute setup, 2 minute test once its placed. Audible signal strength - no pc needed on the ladder. There are lots of solutions. 5.2 / 5.7 ghz Moto stuff runs thousands of subscribers. I'm not affliated with Moto/Canopy and don't ask me to sell you anything.

Best wishes.

Thanks Rick.. I've heard alot about these WRAP boards. Is this something we would put together ourselves or are there products available. What are the costs like? I guess I'd really be interested in what I should be doing for CPE going on, assuming we can still get the Turbocell licenses (see post from Blair Davis re: Winncomm continuing to be able to sell Turbocell licenses).

Mark,

Contact me offlist as we are successfully deploying WRAP boards with Compact Flash loaded with Turbocell. My pains are compounded about 4 times as I had
about 24 Turbocell POPs when this all started.

Hello to the list...

My name is Mark Nash and I own & operate a little WISP of about 300
customers in Oregon.

For CPE, I started out using Breezecom 2.4GHz FH radios then switched to
Karlnet RSU's loaded w/Turbocell. Then the YDI/Terabeam/Proxim series of mergers & acquisitions happened and I've got products from all companies but

they are all Turbocell CPE.

We have 6 WiPops surrounding our customer base (rural southern Willamette
Valley).  We're using Trango backhauls...I started out using them simply
because of their low cost and advertised bandwidth. I still have two in use

from when the company was called Sunstream (I think it was 2002). I remain
happy about that decision.

We started out with a bridged network then ARP changed my tune and we went
to a routed design.

OK, so...there it is.  For those of you who know what's going on with
Turbocell from the new Proxim, you probably know that I'm not happy as they have set out to discontinue the Turbocell client software. So I will soon have to purchase new AP's and shift some customers around because I won't be

able to purchase Turbocell-based devices.  That's the word from Proxim.
So...anyone heard any differently?  I've also asked Proxim if we can
'downgrade' our Turbocell products to 802.11b and they are saying 'no'.

It's a you-know-what sandwich from which I'd rather not take a bite.

Does anyone feel my pain? Any way around these issues aside from replacing
CPE?

Regards,
