That's an Atheros chipset on the PCB but what type of
PCB is it? The model # in the pics looks like 8WAPD15_5A1
but doesn't turn anything up on it. Looks like a
homebrew solution IMO.

Hey Folks,


Last month I posted to the list asking about low cost 5Ghz bridges and a
few folks responded that I should check out Airaya.  I decided to give
them a try based on some really excellent discounts from one of our
vendors.  In short, I hate them :-)  If you're interested in why, feel
free to hit me off list..


We bought two complete links and before installing the first one I
cracked it open and took a picture of its high tech innards to share
with this list.  I hope this helps those looking at sub $3k PTP bridges.

I have never used the Solectek equipment and am looking at either trying
their Skyway 7101 or the Trango Atlas for some short building to
building links.  I have seen enough favorable posts about the Atlas to
know plenty of you are using it successfully - although I sure wish I
could get one of their sales folks to return a phone call.  Leave a
message about buying 250 CPEs and no one calls back....  Anyway :-)


I would like to get opinions on the Skyway 7000.  This would be for very
short <.5 mile links between buildings.  We would normally use
Terabeam/Proxim systems but are looking for alternatives with similar
capabilities and 20-40% lower cost.  Any info/opinions on reliability
and real world throughput would be great.
