[Ctrl-A is the prefix key]




It just sits here when I try ATI. What I am I missing?

Re: Poor SXT 5HnD Speed PTP



the bridge setup is not a good idea in general, but that won't affect the speed so much.
What is the correct way to set them up?

Re: Poor SXT 5HnD Speed PTP

enuro12... I would double check your settings.

This was with the transmit power set to 0 on both devices, 8ft apart and 50ft apart.

I used 3 of my MP IP cameras to test the bandwidth for a real world test.

Re: Advice for a small link

They're a cheap CPE, not a speed demon.

Anything below WPA-AES is going to drop your link speed down to 802.11a/g speeds. N does not work with WEP or TKIP.
So what would you recommend to secure the PTP links? I would love to read a wiki on this. T

Why would you want to use POE for solar applications? 12VDC for Mobotix and 12VDC for Routerboard. Personally I think POE is a PITA when your trying to do stuff like this.

Why not just use Mobotix with a Routerboard the solution already works? What VMS software would you install or are you going to develop your own? Just so I understand you will have an IP camera or encoder and you will be running VMS software on the Routerboard using the SD or USB for storage. Am I c...

Hello everyone I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. I am trying learn how to port forward on my RB750G.


Example:
WAN1 = 207.172.60.61/24 Gate = 207.172.60.1
LAN = 192.168.1.1/24
SERVER = 192.168.1.25 TCP and UDP 80 and 22610

Thank you very much in advance.
