Topic : Tunneling good/bad/has anyone done it?

At the Server screen you have two blocks, (Client) (Pwd). Client is the Node Name of the user you want to allow to connect to you and Pwd is whatever you want to assign. The Net address is created automatically. The server owner has to know the client node name on the mesh network and in return provides that client owner (below) with the three details needed to connect. Tjhe email link can do that by sending a message. At the Client screen there are three blocks (Server) (Pwd) (Network). Server can be a named url or a numeric IP address. Pwd and Network are whatever the owner of the server gives you. The server owner has to tell you all three details or you can't connect.

Topic : Tunneling good/bad/has anyone done it?

I have a question about the tunnels. I am attempting to establish a tunnel between HI and MN. The documentation specifies that two addresses are needed to set up a client, but there is no place on the client screen for a second IP address. What's with this?

Topic : BDAs with Long Coax Run Solution?

I guess nobody has answered this yet? I'm surprised, this site used to be way more active. Well, here's an idea... forget the 140 ft of LMR and use twinlead wire that will provide 12-15 volts DC to your node at the top of your pole, tower, or wherever you want to put your dish. Put your node up there. Then, get a second node and set that up 140 feet away on the ground some place and let the two chat. It'll work fine but you will have some delay between units. Another solution I have adopted in my networks is get Cat5 ethernet cable, 8 conductors, use 4 wires for an ethernet connection to a DTD port on your remote node, and the other 4 wires for DC supplying that remote node. I put a 100uf capacitor across the dc line at the remote end also. An ordinary wall wart DC supply on the ground is all you need to power that remote node. Then connect the 4 wire ethernet half of the cable near end to another node that you've also set up as DTD port. Now you have very little delay and full control of the remote node as well. Not well known is that you can use a crossover cable ( Orange ethernet cable) to connect DTD nodes together BUT.... and this is important... if you reboot one - the other will hang. The workaround is to disconnect the cable while either node is rebooting for any reason. To avoid this inconvenience use a simple ethernet switch that's always powered up and connect both remote and local node to that switch. That's the more well know solution for pairing Tunneling Servers and Clients. It's well documented here in other messages. 73 - Wil - AB9U.

If there's anyone near Rhode Island we're starting to get a quite a few nodes on-line. We're also using the VPN tunnels to connect remote locations throughout the state. Feel free to ping us if you'd like to learn more.

Topic : Part 97 Compliant - Disable SSID Broadcast

I asked this question here a couple of weeks ago and heard nothing back from anyone, and so I investigated this issue myself in detail and came up with a procedure that works well. If anyone else is looking to use a WRT54GS node as, say, a Tunnel Client or Server, with DTD linking only, and no Wifi, then I have a solution. I'll be posting this detailed procedure soon on my Mesh web site at AB9U-BASE. If you need the details sooner feel free to email me or leave a message on my local Hamchat. 73 - Wil - AB9U

Topic : Providence update

After a bit of a hiatus we've resumed working on the Providence mesh. We now have a number of VPN tunnels connecting isolated nodes throughout Rhode Island.

This month we're working on a point to point link across the west side of Providence from my W9GYR node on Manton Ave. in Olneyville to KD1HA on Atwells Ave. near downtown. We've got a good line of site across about 1.3 miles. I'm getting a signal but it is too weak to form a stable link. I'll be swapping the antenna out this weekend to improve the signal quality.

If anyone is interested in joining please feel free to contact me. We'll be meeting informally every couple of weeks through the end of the year and then schedule a meeting in January to help get anyone new involved.

I'm just beginning to experiment with mesh. At what (technical) point can I start putting nodes on the map? I'm in Midway. My node doesn't yet connect to anyone else.

Topic : BDAs with Long Coax Run Solution?

Greetings, all!

I'm just starting to get into HSMM-MESH, and am loving it.  Admittedly, I've got zero experience with GHz frequencies, but the study is fascinating.

Just flashed about four WRT-54G's with great success.  Oh my goodness, is this an eye-opening and devastatingly cool use of older technology.

Come enter my brain for a sec...I need to know if bi-directional amplifiers (BDA's) would prove to be at all useful with long runs of LMR-400.  The story is, I've got a cemented 8' pole out back that I was originally going to use with an HF antenna.  Sadly, it didn't work out, and opted for a vertical for the moment.  However, I was thinking:  could there exist a potential opportunity to use this pole to mount a 24dBi parabolic WiFi antenna to use with a newly flashed HSMM-MESH router?  The game is afoot!

Here's the sad reality:  the LMR-400 run is 140'.  At first blush, I said forget it.  However, I've been reading about bi-directional WiFi amplifiers and started wondering.  My question is:  would there be any hope of using my 140' run of LMR-400 coax with one of my flashed WRT-54G's (with a 24 dBi parabolic)?  Would a BDA (or some other solution) make this dream a reality?

Please go easy on me, as I tend to be more of a dreamer than anything.  (LOL!)  If BDA's won't do the trick, is there something reasonably-priced that would work?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for reading this post, and dreaming-a-little-dream with me.  :)

Cheers, blessings, and 73s!

Topic : Part 97 Compliant - Disable SSID Broadcast

Three years later from the last message here, I'm looking at a related but different solution to broadcasts. I would like to be able to disable the actual WIFI transmitter/receiver function, just like in commercial use boxes, to be able to use multiple nodes in a hard wired cluster using just DTD connections. Even lowering the power to 1dBm, removing the antennas and shielding the connections allows some leakage between nodes with the result of node doubling showing up in the Mesh Node list. I've poked around the firmware code on both Mesh nodes and DD-WRT flashed commercial nodes and have not yet found the exact switch that turns off wifi. I'll keep looking because I know it can be done, but I'm wondering if anyone "out there" has already done it. Again, it's the transmitter/receiver function I want to turn off, not SSID during regular use. Anyone do any work at this level of code and who could point out where I should look?

Good morning, I'm Allen Brooks n3ogd,in Tunkhannock, PA. On Nov. 19th between 10 and 2pm hams interested in emergency comms. will be meeting a the PEMA EAST HQ in Hamburg, pa. Some of us are entering the field of hsmm and will be discussing this plus FLDIGI and other topics. We are not experts but stumbling beginners. It is a way to let hams know about the Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) the ham arm of PEMA. Also to give hams a face to face with other ham of like interests.

Hi Jesse! Have any of them been modified w/ USB access or any other tweaks (or are they otherwise stock except for the 3.1.0 net image flashed? I'm interested as our club has been working on mesh networking, and I'm planning to give these away to the folks who otherwise wouldn't be able to participate. The more 'stock', the better, for that purpose. Thanks! Sean / W9MCP

Hi All,

I have a wrt54gl that i would like to change back to factory or dd-wrt firmware.

I have tried various ways after trolling all the internet etc.

Any one on here have a sure fire way to do it.

Many thaanks,

I have 5 routers for sale. All are flashed with version 3.1.0. They are all a G or GL models and have stock antennas and power supplies. 

Looking to sell them as a single lot. $100 paid with PayPal shipped to the lower 48. 


Thanks

Topic : How can I "reflash" a 3.1.0 image in a 54G?

I am trying to get a mesh node and standard AP combo to work. I have done this before, but for some reason the mesh node seems to lack a WAN address, when the one that works has no trace of it. Something is different. The one that works is a GL, and the one that does is a Gv4.

So, I thought after doing a 30-30-30 reset and the problem persisted that I should retry flashing it.

Oddly enough, the .bin file cannot be used to flash the mesh node. So, how do I do a reflash when I sue Win10 (Linux not an option)? Do I upload the 3.1 tgx file, then select that to flash it again? or is the image shown in the system as 3.1 tgx a file-system image that can be uploaded internally for a reflash?

Very confusing, and I have no idea how to get this WAN issue to disappear. It does appear to impair connectivity through a gateway node.

FYI I have 1 GW node, 1 working comb of 2 Linksys running mesh + standard AP, and then 1 non-reliable combo of Linksys running mesh (both 54G's) the mesh node having that odd WAN behavior that propagates as a failure to find a gateway in the AP.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks, Don VA7IQ/AE7UP
