Purpose World domination

We want to connect extisting networks and fellow people, groups, communities together by Wifi links over 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz

Stuff needed for roof-antennas

See Pledge

Connection to the roof

  • PVC-Pipe for putting UTP to the roof
  • Managed gbit switch (small netgear?)

on the roof

  • ubiguity 5.8 bridge

connection to wireless leiden

We have done measurements, and connecting to Leiden seems most feasable. This'll be done over 5.8ghz.

Other connections?

Some notes on hardware

  • coax-cable == loss, especially on 5.8ghz, so this is to be avoided.
  • 5.8ghz is less noisy as 2.4ghz, 2.4ghz is slightly more available and cheaper
  • there is some hardware available in the hands of members, but for certain links(long-hauls) an investment might be worth is.
  • profesional (but some of them still open) hardware can be gotten between about 100-200 euros per set.
  • you don't want to be the highest point in the area / on the building (lightning risks).
