Building your own wireless network
|BUILDING YOUR OWN WIRELESS NETWORK
Here are some notes about building a wireless network for use by the community around you. The technology is used to provide high speed, permanently on connectivity between the members of your community. In the case of the network we built in our village we have a measured throughput of 6 Mbit/sec. This is more than fast enough for applications such as IP telephony, video conferencing, multi-player network games or streaming MP3 from a central server. A secondary function of the network is to provide access to the Internet as anyone connected to the network.
All this can be had for a very small amount of money and some money by using standard off the shelf wireless ethernet equipment using the 802.11 family of standards.
The notes given here I hope will provide the necessary knowledge for a reasonably technically motivated individual person or group to get going and who to talk to when you get stuck.

access via satellite
Find your site latitude and longitude by looking at a map or using a GPS receiver. Note the satellite orbit location (longitude above the equator) that you will be using. Go to http://www.satsig.net/ssazelm.htm page to determine your dish pointing angles and polarisation. Set the feed polarisation angle. Set the elevation angle really accurately using an inclinometer (allowing for the dish offset) and then, using a compass, swing the antenna boldly around the required azimuth direction. You should find the satelite in a few seconds. Refine the pointing by making small offsets in all directions, which should all cause reductions. Peak up the polarisation with the assistance of the hub who will monitor your transmit carrier for cross polarisation quality.

Providing Solutions For Mobile Adhoc Networking
Mobile adhoc networking allows users to exchange information in a wireless environment without the need for a fixed infrastructure. Each user (or node), equipped with one or more radios, is free to roam about while communicating with others. The path between any pair of users can traverse multiple wireless links and the radios themselves can be heterogeneous, thus enabling an assortment of different types of links to be part of the same adhoc network.
The mobility of the nodes results in a network whose topology is dynamic. The job of the network is to discover the links between the mobile nodes and to build paths so that any user can communicate with any other user, as long as each has a link to the adhoc network. Within the adhoc network, each node acts as a router and forwards packets on behalf of others.
Discovering links and building paths across the mobile adhoc network are challenging problems. As part of our Mobile Mesh research project, we have developed a suite of non-proprietary protocols and Open Source software tools that we believe provide robust, scalable, and efficient solutions.

Ideal for school/office campuses, hotels, apartments and towns: Just plug one of our tiny routers into a DSL or other internet connection and spread additional units around the locations where you want internet access. There is nothing you have to configure - just plug them in.
Easy to grow: Adding additional routers extends the range and since any router can be plugged into the internet, you can add bandwidth where and when you need it.
Complete control over your networks: Customize the SSID, splash Page (via our WYSIWYG/HTML editor), redirect URL and control how much bandwidth your users get - all from a free centralized web-based dashboard.
Monitor your network's health: See how the network is performing, how many people are using it and how much bandwidth they are consuming.
It's two wireless networks in one: A second encrypted network is available for your private or business use.
Completely open-source: You can extend or modify the router's functionality. Never be at the mercy of what one company decides is right for you.

It all boils down to: there aren't enough IP numbers to go around.
So not everyone can have their own IP address. "Some Big ISP" might let you have a dedicated IP, but they'll probably charge you extra for it. Chances are, though, they can't (or won't) help you.
This is somewhat like having to change your phone number twice a day - if other people need to call you, they'll have a devil of a time doing it. Many users don't need a dedicated IP anyway; every time you dial up, an available IP will be selected from their pool, and given to you for as long as you stay connected. If you're only interested in browsing the Web, or maybe playing Quake III: Arena, a dynamic IP address is probably sufficient.
If you want to run a BBS, or Web server, or any number of other services, on your home computer, though, having your phone number change all the time is a real problem.
Enter Dynamic DNS services. They act like old-style phone operators: other users call the operator, and ask to speak to you, and magic happens. Every time your computer comes online, you tell the DDNS server what your current address is. Other users, through the magic of DNS, will be sent to the right place.
If you just want to run a part-time Web server, or Shoutcast server, or something like that, you probably don't need to know most of this. But it may come in handy, and it's (I hope) interesting anyway. If you want to run a BBS, you'll almost certainly need to read on.

A High Speed
|A High Speed Digital Backbone Radio Link
This page outlines my experimental aims towards building a low cost, high speed digital radio point to point link. Such links are intended as a backbone for a future high speed data network, and will run at speeds above 1 Mbps. Intended frequency of operation is in the amateur 10 GHz and/or 24 GHz bands.
Why a high speed data network? I see several reasons why a high speed data network can be of benefit to the amateur community. Besides the obvious reasons of experimentation and relieving the congestion on the current packet radio system, I have outlined my thoughts on the matter in my essay: Amateur Radio - A Future Vision.

|Spread Spectrum Scene
Wireless Local Area Networks have certainly advanced over the last seven to 10 years, haven't they? Then there's all this controversy over which standard to use -- Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum, under FCC 802-11 or Frequency Hopping under FCC's new rulemaking issued August 31, 2000! Perhaps most significant are all the recent concerns about WLAN security.
This page is intended to help guide you from the basic theory of WLANs, to the design of WLANs, through the selection of vendor hardware and system architecture. We provide links to recent news stories on WLANs, reference books available to purchase, and a wealth of free information on the Web!
