    Default Long-range wifi hardware

    Hi all,

    Wondering if there's somebody somewhere in the Auckland region who has any long-range wifi kit who would be willing to meet up with me and "show me the ropes" a little bit?

    I have a project coming up where I need a long-range wifi setup for a few hours to provide internet access to somewhere that can't normally get 3G data.

    Does anybody have any experience with this ?

    Cheers

    Can't help much other than to say http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=...door-Grid-Para.
    Point it at the access point, hook a coax to it, run it to a wi-fi receiver, and setup as normal. For even more distance use one at each end and point at each other.

    But as for specialised long range gear, nope not a clue. Those are just high gain directional aerials I linked.

    Ubiquity long range gear is plenty easy to set up. Ring gowifi, they will be able to answer any questions/ supply gear.

    Have already been in touch with Go WiFi, but because our setup is rather "unique", we'd have to travel for around 6 hours to get to deploy it. We'd rather experiment first locally to ensure it'll work before having to invest a grand worth into it.

    For what its worth dugis link looks almost identical to the Wimax aerial used by Netsmart. That works over pretty well over long distances, in my case over 7-8km, Not exactly the same as WiFi but close, and of course my aerial is picking up a wide area signal. Just an observation, very few clues on the tech side of it.
