Things I've learned about Wireless

Sat Aug 19, 2006 2:53 am

1. You get better up times with only 1 minipci card in board
2. CM9s work better than Prisim when many cards on one tower
3. Prisim will handle outside interference better (seem sliek a contridiction of 2 but its true)
4. SR2's are ok but best when they are the only card on the tower.
5. RB500 with 3 cards gettes better link uptimes with a 18v 1amp PSU then a 12V1.5amp PSU
6. If your using OSPF put your wlans in bridge (by themselves) wlan will dissaper but bridge will stay, gives better reliability
7. default TX power works best :-)
8. Frenal zone os overrated, I have a 40km link on a 1 meter pole.
9. RouterOS is better than all 4 other platforms I've used, I started with RouterOS, went away, came back.
10. Dont buy cheap crap, a $100 CPE will cost more than a $300CPE over 3 years
Queue here to flame ---->>>>

Just thought I'd post perhaps it may help someone.

:-)

Oh sure, physics in general is completely overrated :shock:

I think he's saying that the negative effects of not having >%60 freznal zone are exagerated. Probably a greater issue for radio systems that don't have all the tolerance handling features of the modern wifi system.

For sure. I like to try and use the highest voltage I can.

Yer, it leaves the interface 'up' when there's nothing associated.
