A general meeting will probably take place on Thursday, 1 December at 20:00 at the Κουκούτσι in Aharnon 19.
FOR SALE: Outdoor Cable and Connectors
We have bought 300m shielded outdoor Cat5e Gigabit Ethernet cable from EuroLAN and 100 pieces of shielded 8p8c modular TOUGHcable connectors. The Cat5e F/UTP cable has 4 twisted wire pairs plus one ground wire of ⌀0.5mm (24AWG) and a foil shield. The TOUGHcable connectors are also rated for Category5e Gigabit and they have a separate place for the ground wire.
Anybody who is interested can buy some. The price is 0.37€/m for the cable and 0.45€/piece for the connectors.
First Link Update
A brief update on the work that has been done on the #1–#8 WiFi link. We have a 80mbps 802.11a/n link over a distance of 4500m with standard 20MHz band width.
Let's find out who wants to connect with whom and if we can connect the #1–#8 link and the #31–#30–#32#–#52 chain together. Let's organise roof meetings to check for eye (laser) contact between our antennas.
Virtual Links with VPNs
We can set up virtual links by using the internet as a medium instead of a real WiFi connection. This can be a temporary solution until we have more real links. It can also be a backup solution if a WiFi link breaks down. Plus it allows us to connect with other networks that are (still?) out of reach like the AWMN or nodes in Rethymno or Chania.
