Got the router turned on and the link to the broadband antenna connected.June 14, 2022 at 5:50 PM #15771Jerome DaoustGeneral Member
Thank you! There must be more to the story than turning on a switch and connecting the antenna. ;-)June 14, 2022 at 8:45 PM #15772Ken HowellsGeneral Member
Well, I did go _all the way_ to Best Buy for the 100′ CAT-6 cable.
Yesterday, Tim Ward mounted the receiving dish at the north end of the roof. The WiFi router had been mounted in a plastic tub on top of the shipping container and it got kinda crushed during the roofing work. The tub was destroyed and the router-case was cracked open but the circuitry seemed intact. The blinky lights came on momentarily yesterday when first plugged in, but no joy after that.
Today I double checked the power cords and then got up on the ladder and scrutinized the router. Found a power switch partially obscured by grime and gunk. Blinky lights came on, phone got CSS weather via wifi.June 15, 2022 at 1:02 AM #15776Jerome DaoustGeneral Member

What do we use for internet out at AJX? Just wondering because I think it might be a good idea to look into starlink.com for service. It very reliable satelite service for $110 per month. I just set it up in Phoenix for a client and the speeds are consistently around 200Mb Down and 20Mb up. Just throwing it out there for options. If we know who manages the site I would be happy to set it up for free (if CSS is pays for the equipment). I paraglide out of AJX with Jordan and always willing to volunteer my IT skills whenever they are needed. (I am not a coder, but I can do almost everything else).
