Topic : Netis WF2501

Quite some time ago I set a MESH but no one is close enough for a connection. I picked up a Netis WF2501 repeater for cheap and wonder if it's usable for MESH.

To add nodes to the map, use the form at http://goo.gl/forms/G4AyoXa7d5.

To modify an existing node on the map,  use the form at http://goo.gl/forms/xJHuiuKim4.


Be sure to click on any node icon to display the detailed information relevant to that node.

Topic : Utah Mesh Node Map

I have a new node up just south of Newton, Utah in Cache County.

Stock antennas only for now, but I have an omni and a 24db directional I'll be installing as soon as I know where to point (Nibley perhaps?).

Topic : Operating Antennas from inside attic/roof spaces

Might I recommend the Ubiquiti AG-2G16-HP AirGrid M2-HP 16dBi Grid 2.4GHz. We are making a 20 mile link with two of these antennas. They are inexpensive and are complete and it has a relatively small foot print if that is an issue.

Topic : Port Forwarding from Wifi to Wan

Is it possible to forward requests for example telnet from the wifi interface to the WAN side of the mesh node.  I swear I have the iptables config setup correctly, but it just doesn't seem to work.

Yes that's what I found as well ... the router or computer needs DHCP to hand them the wlan IPs instead of the node's lans. Interesting :)

Update a bit. Notice there is a clash in subnets. anyone know where the addresses should be or how to figure out what they should be from the chip id's?

Topic : WRT300N using bbhn-3.1.0-wrt300n_v1-2.4-squashfs.bin

Thank you for your reply. The WRT300N flashed with bbhn-3.1.0-wrt300n_v1-2.4-squashfs.bin and the BroadbandHamnet-20-v3 was already entered. When I try to save the configuration it tells me that and is telling me "invalid Wifi IP Address" that it needs the WiFi IP Address assigned. I thought that the IP Address was assigned by the chip identification (I know it called something else) assignment. WIFI Protocol Static IP Address 10.0.0.0 NetMask 255.0.0.0 SSID BroadbandHamnet -20-v3 Mode Ad-Hoc Channel 1 LAN setup as: LAN Mode IP Address 10.0.0.1 Netmask 255.255.255.248 DHCP Server DHCP Start 2 DHCP End 6 Perhaps this is something that is in error on the software flash. As every WRT54G's I've done always assigned the WiFi address. Thanks, Ben ARS w4qed

Topic : SOLD: 7 BBHN nodes for sale

These have SOLD: I have for sale 7 BBHN ham radio MESH nodes.

6 of them are a mix between Linksys WRT54G & WRT54GS models. 1 of them is the smaller Motorola WR850G.


I built one of the WRT54GS into a really nice enclosure which includes a 8db gain omni directional vertical antenna, as well as a 16db gain directional antenna. This node is weather resistant and works great up on an antenna mast as you can see in the photos.


Each device comes with a power supply, an ethernet cable and antennas.


I think 2 of them possibly have not been flashed with BBHN yet. Those that have been flashed are up to date with the newest firmware 3.1.


There are also several other ham radio uses for these devices. I have read about people using them as Ham Radio APRS internet gateways! http://www.dimebank.com/cak/k6dbg/k6dbg_igate.html


Price is $100 FIRM.

Topic : Another DNS question! How do devices just "know" the node IPs?

Well I don't understand it but somehow some routers, when they get their WAN DHCP info, they get the LAN gateway IP of the BBHN node they're connected to. But then others get a wireless node IP ... and those work! I used the same WRT54G today with Openwrt and it would give me nothing but the node's LAN IP. But then I flashed it to stock firmware and now it gets the wireless IP that knows the node names. I don't get it, but it's working now :)

Topic : Another DNS question! How do devices just "know" the node IPs?

Hi all,

I've read some interesting posts about node names and getting your PC or router to resolve them to IPs.  The strange thing is, I had 3 nodes and simply connected a LAN port on one to the WAN jack on a wifi router.  That was it.  When I connected to the router wirelessly, with no special config it just knew where to find the nodes.  But then I discovered that that router had 16mb of flash so I had to go install Openwrt on it and brick it :(

So I'm just wondering, how exactly does a "blind device" on a mesh network know how to resolve node names?  The other two routers I've tried will actually show the "redirecting you to ..." screen but then can't resolve the home screen for the nodes.

Thanks for any help!

Steve

Topic : Chipset/Model/Firmware ID

Hello everyone...my apologies if this is covered..I have searched and found the table of which M Series, but how can I be sure which one I am buying has the correct chipset/firmware?  I'm on Ebay ready to purchase a bullet M* but want to be sure I'm getting the correct version. 

Is it safe to say that all bullet M2s are safe?  Basically looking for either a serial number matrix, firmware ID, or something to allow an online purchase of the correct hardware. 

Thanks for a great resource. 


73,

Paul

As long as you leave channel selection on auto, they will avoid each other automatically.
