|We went out testing after this. Max
range was 15 miles but I think we could have gone a bit further. He got a call
and we had to cut the testing short. I'll get back out with him one of these
days and we'll try some different radio cards and locations. We'll also get
some speed tests done.
Max speed was about like that of the home
installs (90ish K/sec ftp transers). I was also able to remotely print to my
house (my wife chewed me out for that one! The printer started printing, I
wasn't home and she didn't do it! hehehehe). The radio would loose connection
when we dropped below a hill and come back on as soon as we came back up.
We were also able to roam from cell to cell. The radio would pick up
the different essid and channel automatically. We'd have about a 30 second
outage when dropping below one system till the new one picked us up. E-mail and
Web surfing didn't seem to mind this much but it sure drove ICQ nuts. I'll have
to find a different chat program for them I guess.
Honest officer! I don't know who would have put Napster on my
