UPDATED: 5/9/2014 with current needs


Much of what accounts for the differences between Ubiquiti devices is the way their antenna gain and power level is handled.  There is a data sheet in the filesystem of UBNT devices when they are running their factory operating system, AirOS, which identifies key parameters we need to add support for these devices.


The following table describes those that we still need.


M3 Rocket HP Titanium 

PowerBridge


M5 Rocket HP Titanium

PowerBridge


M9 Nano Station

Nano Bridge

Rocket HP

Rocket HP Titanium


So, if you have any of these devices, we are asking for your help in running the following procedure:


1) It must be running the AirOS.

2) Telnet or Putty into the node (default user is ubnt; password ubnt; default ip 192.168.1.20)

3) Run "cat /etc/board.info"

4) Save the resultant file and post it in response to this forum thread.


As you can see, we are nearing the end of this exercise, so thanks for the tremendous support you have already been.  As the final responses come in I'll continue to post periodic updates to this chart.


Thanks and 73,


Andre, K6AH

How would you propose using them? Andre, K6AH

The XR3 operates in the 3.4-3.5ghz ham band. the XR9 operates 902-928MHZ as a part 15 device. I would propose using these as linking radio's between clusters of BBHN. There are several SBC options for installing these radio cards, most of which will run Openwrt and dd-wrt.


anyway, just an idea.

I believe a Ubiquiti node is better suited: higher power, much better suited for outside deployment, much cheaper, supports both those bands and 5.7GHz to boot, and you can cross-band them with an Ethernet switch. Andre, K6AH

Andre, Which Ubiquiti node are you suggesting? the XR3 and XR9 cards are both ubiquiti, btw. Marc

The AirMax line. Bullet, Nano, Loco, NanoBeam, Rocket, etc. All are supported by current BBHN software. Andre

So how does the M365 operate in the Ham allocation of 3.3-3.5GHz?

The M365 doesn't operator in the ham allocation. You would need to import the M3 international version. If this ends up not being possible then you would need to design your network on another band plan. In any case, I fail to see the utility of PC- based node. Andre, K6AH

We are in final preparations for our UBNT M5 release (BBHN 1.1.0) and would like the following devices tested to confirm the power setting control works properly.

 

  • AirGrid M2 HP (board.sysid=0x242)
  • AirGrid M5 HP (board.sysid=0xe255)
  • PicoStation M2 (board.sysid=0xe302)

 

We are hoping that someone among us owns one or more of them.  Getting these tested now avoids the Yellow “UNTESTED DEVICE” banner from appearing and allows the firmware to properly control the device’s power levels.


So, if you own one and have a few minutes we would like you to load our beta release and run a couple quick tests.

 

Your help is really appreciated!  But please get back to me as soon as possible… we don’t want to hold up the release.

 

73,

Thanks Marc.  I think we have these covered now.  I appreciated the offer.

Am I wrong to say that any of this hareware will be running the BBHN 1.1.0 ? 73 Mathison

I'd say it's a bad idea to buy gear until we announce what we'll support.  Take it from me... I made the mistake myself... and I'm the project manager!

Hi Andre, I have two AirGrid M2 HP that I have flashed the firmware to Broadband-Hamnet already and get the error message, but still seems to work fine. Are you still conducting the test? I'm not sure where to check the info concerning the "board.sysid=0x242". I'd be willing to reflash one of these if you still need the info and they are the right ones. 73 Mike, n7kmj

Never mind, I see these are already covered. Strange way message is presented on login. Oh well, this happens to newbies. ( smile )

Hi Andre. I didn't get the email (k0fei@arrl.net - k0fei@me.com) but went ahead and loaded the current ubnt Bullet M on the Picostation M2. Other than the yellow banner on the status page warning it is untested - everything seems to be working fine. It is talking with a LinkSys WRT54GS, 2 Beagle Bone Blacks, a Raspberry Pi and a NanoStation Loco M.

Andre, I have several Ubiquiti PICO M2HP units and would like to participate in the testing of the new FW. Sorry I did not see this earlier - was on vacation. Regards, Robert, WB6WGM

Oh, thanks Robert, but Frank, K0FEI, just tested the PicoStation and confirmed it's supportability for us. The M2 will be supported in our upcoming release. Andre, K6AH
