Topic : Covington, Va

Hey guys, I'm Terry KJ4TOZ. The W4COV club has begun playing with BBHN some and I wanted to join the forum for inspiration and guidance. 

We currently have about a half dozen units between three of the members but we are slowly picking up a few here and there as we can find them. 

We are hoping to get a few links established around town to support our ARES group but for now we are just learning the systems and what we can do with them.

I doubt the WRT54G can reach very far without a good high gain antenna. The Loco has a high gain antenna built in. What model is the Loco? 2, M2, 5, M5, something else? If it's an M2, I'd put AREDN on it (it's actively developed, will talk to BBHN just fine, and you can avoid bricking the device). If it's not an M, it can't run BBHN or AREDN. If it's an M5, it's in the 5GHz band rather than the 2.4GHz band that Linksys devices use. As for your other questions, the mesh node is the DHCP server. It should just be plug and play if your servers are running a DHCP client.

Topic : How to view a IP Camera on my node?

Hi There;

Got a IP Address camera on one router (Mesh) configured and shows a camera service on that node, How I'm able to view de images or video real time from that camera? Do I have to install another firmware to be able to access that camera?

Topic : Can't Get Signal to the Neighbor

I have two WRT54G routers configured with Hamnet - both in my home.  They seem to be running correctly and they see each other normally.  One is upstairs with a 20dB gain yagi connected to one antenna port and the other antenna port has the original antenna on it.

The yagi is pointed out a window toward my closest ham neighbor - clear line of site about 1/2 mile away.

In the house the Hamnet signal is the strongest signal present, beating my two in-home WiFi channels.  However, if I go out at the edge of the property (200') inline with the direction the yagi is pointing  with my laptop running a WiFi sniffer app the Hamnet signal doesn't make it any further than the regular WiFi signals, let along a half mile.

My understanding of this stuff is pretty weak but I was expecting to get a strong SSID broadcast off the end of that yagi - but it appears not.

I need some tips....


Thanks

Yes, still interested although after scoping out my QTH is not a very good location, I'm kind of low.  I'll need to get some others involved to have decent coverage.

Joe, I can't see much at ground level. But I think that I can get enough height for the antenna to be able to see the buildings in center city.

John, it never really formed. I've got a bullet with a vertical omni on my rooftop but our wooded terrain doesn't support long paths. There is a RocketM5 on the roof of Fair Acres in Lima, Delaware County but it's pointed the wrong way for you. What do you see across the river? Joe

Topic : Newbee checking in

Hi all, thanks for having this forum.

I have all of the components needed to get "on the air" just overcoming inertia.

I have a NanoStationLoco and over 700 feet of cat5 outdoor wire (grey)

I have a WRT54GL with Hamnet firmware installed and several hundred feet of RG6 coax and a 15db gain vertical antenna.

And I have 2 Xeon servers running Ubuntu Server with GUI.

I see one station on Googlemaps that I might be able to hit.

So please tell me to get off my a$$ and get to work.

I have many questions however. Even though I'm a retired Unix sysadmin I am very rusty since that was almost 30 years ago.

For openers, where does the DHCP take place? What do I have to do? Which IP addresses?

Thanks for any comments and support. 73, Jim W3FAW

Topic : Shack LAN access for WRT54 BBHN node?

Hello All,

I got a WRT54G at Hamvention this year and after updating and basically setting it up thru the WAN port, I am trying to find a way to connect to it thru wired Ethernet. I have an old 5 plus uplink port Cisco hub that I using to bring the Internet to a couple of Raspberry PIs in the shack. I would like to find some way of getting the internet to it so that I can play with packages. I tried to connect the WAN port to one of the five ports on the hub but although the node seemed to realize it was connected to something, neither my router nor my PIs can see it. I thought this would work because it is my understanding that the WAN port has a DHCP client to facilitate internet connected nodes. Does the node WAN port not accept incoming connections?

I would like to have my node connected to my shack LAN so that I can admin it from all of my computers and have unencrypted internet access on it for package management and possibly tunneling.

73,

Augustine W8AWT

Basically you just have to flash the device with the older firmware before you can flash it with the BBHN software. I got nervous the first time I did it but after 3 nodes now it is easy.
