Yesterday was another hands-on day to get our wireless network working better. Since more than a year we can use a church in our neighborhood as a Routing-Point for our network. The first installation from last spring was well made but never as useful as expected. So it was time to remade the whole thing. This time we decided to first install a test setup and make the whole installation more flexible than the last time.

cimg0040.jpgWe installed a 11b/g router to cover the ground and a 11a (5GHz) router to possibly create a backbone soon. Cause we are currently got the permission to use a hospital in the south of our town to install some routers and a local radio station gives us some connectivity, this is hopefully step to a better internet-supply for the whole area. We will see if we get the whole thing better this time. It will also be our first experience with the 11a/5GHz standard, we expect a much better throughput cause of less noise in this band.
