Topic : 2.4 ghz -1 and -2 channels

  Why doesn't the software provide the configuration for 2.4 ghz -1 and -2 channels? Those are within the amateur radio frequencies  and away from the normal channels 1-11 that are used by the public.

Topic : Netgear AC1700

Here's an off the wall question for our hardware hackers:  I found a Netgear AC1700 combo wifi modem cable adapter at a yard sale for $1.  Seller told me it was "bricked".  I got it back to my Ham Shack and did a complete power cycle including factory reset.  I used WireShark (Linux) to look for anything coming out of it after I repowered it.  As they say "the lights are on but nobody's home".  SDR and Wifi Sniffer shows good signals on both 2 & 5 gHz bands.  Attempts to access internal firmware via the LAN ports were without results.  I used variety of http and terminal communications attempts to access firmware "web page".  The device has no external access ports other that ones I tried.

Before I open the box, do you have any ideas?  I'm thinking opening it up and doing a remove/replace on internal battery or converting it to a flower planter.  Maybe separating the WiFi board out for Yet Another Project (YAP).

Advice please,

Forum : How we used HSMM-MESH™
Topic : Allstar and Raspberry PBX on a HSMM-MESH

Hello:

I am new to HSMM-MESH.  Just a couple of months ago I find this site and start my journey with it.  Rapidly I searched on Ebay and bought four, yes four WRT54G.  In reality they are 2 WRT54G, 1 WRT54GS and 1 WRT54GL.  The WRT54GS is configured with a Client Tunnel script.  

I am running an Allstar node 46149 on a Raspberry pi in the mesh.  I can access the node from inside the mesh and outside because I have one node connected to the internet.  That node is configured as a gateway to have access on my other nodes.  Also I am running in another node a Raspberry Pi with the software PBX.  I use Zoiper at this moment to connect to it, but I am planning to buy IP phones to connect them in the remote nodes.  

The next thing is to buy IP cameras to finish the project.  I am trying to promote this on my area.  The capabilities of the HSMM-MESH in emergency situation are really good.

Topic : Cannot save node name and password change

So I managed to un-brick myself and finally get bbhn-3.1.0 running. Still no neighbors, but we'll see what I can pickup when I plug the radio into a repurposed satellite dish.

For those interested in the solution, see my post in the UBNT Firmware forum...

Well, now I'm bricked.

I guess I can be put in the column of another disappointed newbie that's off to find something else to waste my time on.

I can TFTP upload, but I either get "Firmware check failed" or if it will upload, then after resetting goes into a reboot loop.

I have tried reloading bbhn as well as Ubiquiti 5.5.11 and even 5.6.6, but nothing gives.

Oh well...

I had a more knowledgeable friend look at it. He was able to do it, but had to open up the case and go in on the serial port. It works fine right now...

Did you ever have any luck getting setup? I'm in the same boat with an AirGrid M2...

Topic : Cannot save node name and password change

Has anybody had any luck getting this to work. I'm in the same boat. Make changes, save changes and unit reboots then comes back up in unconfigured mode. 

I tried clicking out of the form before saving and no luck there either

Topic : Answered my own question: Can I reload my stock Ubiquiti F/W if I want after installing bbhn-3.1.0

Subject :Answered my own question: Can I reload my stock Ubiquiti F/W if I want after installing bbhn-3.1.0

I'm just about to start playing with an AirGrid M2 and want to be sure I can reload my Ubiquiti bin file if I need to return the unit to "stock".

I would assume it's going into Setup -> Administration -> Upload Firmware, but want to be sure I'm not about to do anything un-doable.

After a couple of stressful moments (or days really), the answer is "sort of".

My original F/W was AirOS 5.6.6. Aafter flashing bbhn 3.1.0 and finding that I could boot but couldn't save config, I attempted to TFTP recover AirOS and got stuck in the reboot loop.

I then found out I couldn't TFTP restore *anything* and thought for sure I was bricked. I was able to find and download 5.5.11 but that wouldn't load with "Firmware check failed".

I was able to use the serial port "urescue" method and was able to reload my 5.6.6 firmware. From there I downgraded to 5.5.11 then was able to successfully load and configure bbhn 3.1.0.

Moral of the story is that if you're running 5.6.x, downgrade to 5.5.x before you try to load bbhn 3.1.0.

The other lesson I learned is that the serial recovery is not as bad as it seems other that having to open the case.

I can provide a tunnel if you're OK tunneling into a server in Southern California.

The XW hardware is pretty well supported by the AREDN nightly builds now. They're pretty stable: https://www.arednmesh.org/content/nightly-builds

Topic : ETA of XW Platform firmware for NS M5

Hi all

Does anyone have any information on the firmware for the XW firmware? I'm relatively new to this but have enjoyed playing around with linksys routers but when I finally got my hands on a nano station it had XW firmware. I didn't realize that a lot of this information is several years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Topic : mesh ip radio

Hi all

I have a  idea. Use a Rpi make it a mesh node. Then run a multicast app that will do roip with no server. Use a 16x2 lcd on the Pi and have channel numbers so that you can have a few channels. This will be ideal for emcom and as long as the Pi node is connected to the mesh you can talk to other hams with the same setup. What do you guys think of the idea.
