Topic : Alfa ap121u (Hornet-UB)

Is there any movement on this? Or does anyone have specs, like memory and such, on this unit.


I was going to purchase a unit to test attached to a RPi, but if it can be a stand-alone node, that would be better.

well, progress of sorts, at least I see -something- happening. tftp'ing on linux ubuntu 16.04 laptop. 'putting' XM 5.5.11 to my M2 running XM 5.6.2 a couple of times results in 'error code 2, Firmware check failed'. I'm still studying all the stuff on this failure. 73 David

VE3OY Could you tell us which settings you used? I've used tftp & tftpd previously, succesfully, on Cisco phones, but getting nowhere with this, with the 5.5.11 bashing away for extended periods. 73 David

I am also using NanoStation M2's and here is what I did ... Downgrade the factory firmware to 5.5.11 using TFTP. (You MUST use TFTP to do this). Once 5.5.11 is loaded and working, you can use the firmware upgrade tool in the web admin console.

Topic : Ubiquiti BM2-Ti?

A couple of years back I purchased three of the Ubiquiti Bullets for use with the HSMM firmware. In the course of loading Broadband Hamnet firmware I managed to brick two of the devices and lost the third to a windstorm when the N connector sheared on impact with the ground. So I reverted back to the WRT-54 boxes for tinkering around the house. Decided to wait and see what developed with Ubiquiti products and BBHN,

Fast forward a couple of years and I noticed there is now a caveat about using the Ubiquiti devices. The work around seems to be taking the device from the version 5.6 Ubiquiti firmware back to an older 5.5 Ubiquiti firmware and then load the mesh radio firmware for Broadband Hamnet. Those instructions are dated September 2015.

Are the instructions still current? Any updates? Any recommendations pro or con about the Ubiquiti devices and their suitability?

Thanks es 73

Hi Darrell, I'm in the same situation. I have an M2 with XM v5.6.2 I've tried tftp to flash it with v5.3.x so far without success. I'm not even sure if this should be possible or not. I've had a look around to see if this is possible, but get rather lost in the 'noise', hi. 73 David

So, thinking that the problem may be my use of the 10.x for my LAN interface, I changed it on both the BBHN node to 192.168.1.2 and the PC 192.168.1.5 , and.... Same behavior as before.

Yeah this is seriously driving me looney. It should work. As far as I can tell, everything is setup correctly. It's happening internally to the BBHN node.

So I tried swapping interfaces, ie. putting the HamWan device on the LAN interface, and my LAN connected to the WAN interface on the BBHN node. SAME behavior as before. Nothing passes beyond the interface connected to the HamWan radio. Like I said, if I connect the HamWan radio to a PC, I can pass right through the NIC to the radio, and out onto the 44network. I don't understand why the BBHN node is blocking traffic at the interface.

SO I am certain the problem is WITHIN the BBHN Node itself. If I connect the HamWan interface to a PC, I can get right out. If I have the HamWan interface connected to the wan port on the BBHN node, from SSH within that node, I cannot ping the radio! So traffic is not going past the wan port interface ON the node itself. Any idea on where I should be looking? THanks!!

Managed to patch b43 drivers from OpenWrt Backfire 10.03, generate new regulatory.bin to extend allowed ranges and patch wpad-mini hotspot service. Two routers were running on channel 0, one was AP, another client. They were able to ping each other.

Topic : Routing issues

I am trying to figure out how to route from my LAN through a BBHN node out to the 44.net which is accessed through my HamWan node.

For those that don't know about HamWan it's a point to point 5.8Ghz ham network and very robust.

(http://hamwan.org)

Anyhow, for the HamWan network, I have been assigned 44.30.255.48/29

which yields 44.30.255.49 - 44.30.255.54 and a netmask of 255.255.255.248


I have the LAN port of the BBHN node connected to the LAN with a static IP Address and it is accessible from anywhere on my LAN.

I have the WAN port connected to the HamWan radio, with IP address of 44.30.255.50

I can see THAT address of that interface, but traffic goes no further for some reason.


On any PC in the LAN, I can route any traffic for 44.0.0.0 to the IP Address of the LAN port of the BBHN node.


Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Topic : Linksys wrt54g, backfire 10.03 and channel 0, -1

Hello and thank you for this interesting project.

I have couple of old unused WRT54G(L) routers and want to experiment with Broadband Hamnet.

Few questions:

  1.  Is there any experience with configuring these routers to work out of ISM Wifi channels the same way as with ubq devices, for example on channel 0, -1, etc. 
  2. Looking at OpenWRT source for Backfire 10.03 it seems that there is some room for experiments with b43legacy drivers, which have some problems in psk mode according to OpenWRT wrt54g wiki, but it does not matter for Broadband Hamnet usage as psk is not in use. Anyone has experience with patching b43legacy drivers to make these routers work on channel 0, -1 or can anyone confirm that its HW is capable to tune to these channels?
  3. Does Broadband Hamnet support Backfire 10.03? Is there any chance to integrate it with this OpenWRT version?

73!
