About AppCAD approx: 1.1MB

AppCAD is an easy-to-use program that provides you with a suite of RF design tools and computerized Application Notes to make your design job faster and easier. AppCAD is the in-between solution ... the everyday RF design tool that fills the gap in between HP's major CAD programs and your handheld calculator.

AppCAD is provided free of charge by Agilent as a service to the RF and microwave design community. This Windows(R) version of AppCAD is based on the very popular MS-DOS(R) version of RF and Microwave AppCAD "Classic." The original version of AppCAD was released by Hewlett-Packard.

AppCAD's unique, interactive approach makes engineering calculations quick and easy for many RF, microwave, and wireless applications using products ranging from discrete transistors and diodes to Silicon and GaAs integrated circuits. The latest AppCAD version information, FAQs, and updates are

MEDIA PLAYERS for Broadband Television

Enjoy quality broadband television from around the globe transmitted over the web at broadband speeds.

English webcasts originate from Canada, the USA, Europe, and Asia.

If you don't yet have a broadband connection to the internet, you can still enjoy a wide assortment of radio and TV webcasts using a conventional dial-up connection.





I'm writing from MadridWireless, in Madrid, Spain to let you guys know about a tool we've built to help us manage IP allocation among our nodes and backbone links. We call it NodeManager, and can be seen in use at

Basically, you set up a pool of IPs for your client (wireless) networks and a pool for your peer-to-peer "backbone" links. Then, users (node owners) can request IP allocation automatically. The whole process is done online, with authorization done by designated admins via email. And since you have node information and IP information in one place, it then can do some DNS robot tricks, and generate a backbone network topology graph.

We have about 27 nodes up and running, most with links between them via IP tunnels. We should have our first WiFi links soon. We run OSPF and have 2 BGP links with other community groups in Spain.

I'm in the process of putting it into the CVS and integrating it with EvilBunny's NodeDB. The tool is in a very stable "base" stage, and ready for collaboration.

Please take a look and see if it's useful to you all! It is multi-language as well - choose "english" down at the bottom right of the page (the default is Spanish)

OPEN ACCESS POINT, Where 802.11 meets Open-Source Software

Here you can find the complete source code, build environment, and instructions for flashing an 802.11 access point with linux 2.4.17. The end product is a linux-based access point providing full wireless services, including multipoint to multipoint wireless bridging (802.1d), while at the same time distributing fully standard 802.11b connections to end users.

OpenAP hardware and equipment

You must obtain the following hardware to create your OpenAP.

An access point based on the Eumitcom WL11000SA-N board.

This is the OpenAP hardware platform. Eumitcom WL11000SA-N boards are resold as:

  • US Robotics (USR 2450) (tested)
  • SMC EZconnect (2652W) (tested)
  • Addtron (AWS-100) (untested)


Open Projects Net exists to provide an interactive environment for free software and open source projects and support groups. Our network is currently implemented using Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Our aim is to help improve the communication and coordination skills of our participants and to maintain a friendly, efficient environment for project coordination and technical support.

In 1998, OPN had about 100 users and less than 20 channels. We currently peak at nearly 4,000 users and over 1,300 channels. It's hard to maintain a friendly IRC environment, and we put a lot of effort into it. It requires social hacks and software hacks. We continue to grow and we'll keep working to ensure that the network remains a productive and a useful place.
