Times are changing. If you want devices with
lots of chips and blinky lights you'll have to pay extra. Everything it

I love my Airaya radios. They've been a great

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

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 J
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
