[WISPA] Roku 3 Wifi Interference

Has anyone run into this yet?

The Roku 3 uses it's own dedicated wifi network to communicate with the remote control. If the roku is connected to the customer's wifi router to get online, the remote wifi will always use the same channel and cause interference with other wifi devices.

We just had an install today where the router was hearing the interfering SSID from the roku at a -22. And as you might expect the wifi performance was garbage.

Just one more thing to look out for and cause support headaches.

The workaround is to plug in the roku via ethernet, which will make it use the 5ghz band to talk to remote - of course that might interfere with your 5ghz CPE now.

Are IR remotes really all that bad?

[WISPA] FW: MWC - New End User Submission

This is an EUS I did for my house.  You can see the minimum height needed in the links.  If you do a link on the site you can hover over the red text to see the path profile it runs.

 

Jims-omni isn’t a great example cause it is on the roof of my house.  I dropped the pin on the same roof as the antenna J

Re: [WISPA] Who is using Towercoverage.com ?

Ok folks,  we are still working on this.  We now have it set to auto run the rx side height on link paths (up to 200’ but will increase this soon to 300’ for max approximate PoE distance).  You will see on a link there is a Minimum Antenna Height for Rx.  If you hover over it. It will show the calculated path to reach your Rx side threshold.  We are assuming the AP side stays constant and the client side moves.  You would need to reverse the sides to move the AP side up. 

 

If you’re area has a lot of trees, I would suggest cranking up your land cover % on the trees to around 500% depending on your area.  The higher you set this the more forest loss you will see when it encounters trees.

 

I extended the WISPA promo code for those of you that haven’t tried this.  The promo code field is in the account settings.

 

Thx,

I'm not talking about customers plotting where their address is.  What I'm getting at is if I have a customer called in, I'd like to just punch in the location and then see if they'll work at ground level or how high we need to get off the ground and see the signal change as I increment height.

I'm having a hard time adjusting to this from Radio Mobile.  There's all the same "stupid" interface shortfalls, for example wanting to know what a customer's CPE would be without adding a site and putting them in the same list.  I feel with technology as it is, it shouldn't be so convoluted to simply put a dot on a map and see what the signal would be from a tower while being able to adjust the elevation on the fly.

 

I'm wondering if there's another list/forum for this service, too.  There's no way I'm going write a bible of questions for support, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for either of us.

[WISPA] PSA: rb750 reboots on switch loops

We got there, put in an rb750 (in place of a 153 that was causing issues).  It kept rebooting.  Did a second one.  Kept rebooting.

Unplugged all devices, and one by one figured out that they put a switch and used two cables at one of the desks.  Dunno why, I try not to think about it.

We had ether 2/3 go to two different 8 port switches and off "ether3 switch" was a third switch the customer hid.

[WISPA] Rocket AP through put

Looking for some feed back concerning Rocket APs. We have quite a few of these in the field with UBNT Sectors and KPerformance Sectors. 

What we run into is customer complaints about slow speeds at night when they call into after hours support. We come in the next day and run speed tests to the radios and they look ok.

Some APs have 20 subs and some as high as 50 subs.

Yesterday one of our employees ran speed tests from his home connected to one of those APs during the day and he got 15M. Then that evening he tried to watch Netflix - biggest complaint from most subs - and it would not start. He ran a speed test and got 500K. The AP he is connected to has 19 subs. 

Trying to figure out just how many subs streaming on an AP will bring the through put down to 500K?

We are considering limiting how many streams can run on a given AP but need to figure where the breaking point is if that makes any sense. 

Thanks for any insight any one can shed on this.

[WISPA] Giant Florida Swamp Woodpecker Damage

The giant FL Swamp Woodpecker, know locally as a Swamp-pecker, got a hold of this power bridge....
 
 
Now normally that would bother me, but since the UBNT radios don't handle MPLS packets normally I would have had to replace this any way with another vendor radio that doesn't try to QOS everything without permission.
For more info:
 
Seriously, UBNT needs to address / acknowledge / fix this.  And that was a lightning bolt yesterday took out the radio.

[WISPA] CAF-USF-StateTax for WISPs

Guys,
 
I've been out of the loop for a couple years, regarding current status of CAF/USF/Tax requirements for WISPs.  I was surprised when I recieved my first bill from my new upstream fiber provider.
(they are a dark fiber provider, recently expanded to also offer metro ethernet IP)
Note: I do NOT buy IP Transit from this provider, nor Last mile Fiber. I am just buying a Point-to-Point Fiber Transport data link.
So I consider this a wholesale component or infrastructure component, not an End User Internet circuit.
 
In the past, my Fiber providers never charged me any Taxes or USF.  
I was under the impression that as a WISP (Im not a CLEC) providing Broadband only services, I didnt need to collect or pay into USF, CAF, or State Taxes. And further, my Upstream should be exempt from having to pay and/or collect such fees from me.  If so, I need to provide legal documentation to support my claim to my upstream.
 
THe new fiber provider is trying to charge me....
The Federal USF stated was about 16.5% of monthly fiber cost.
The VA Communication Tax was about 6% of monthly fiber cost.
The Property Tax / Franchise/Row Recovery Fees 0.08% of monthly fiber cost.
 
First, I thought it was federal law that Broadband can not be taxed by the State.
Second, the USF amount stated was 16.5%, but in the past, when USF was applicable it was  always only around 6%.
 
Note: I do NOT buy IP Transit from this provider, nor Last mile Fiber. I am just buying a Point-to-Point Fiber Transport data link.
So I consider this a wholesale component or infrastructure component, not an End User Internet circuit.
 
So questions are....
 
1) Am I exempt as a WISP.
2) Is there a standard government form I can provide to my uptream, to document my exemption (similar to use tax resell certificate)
3) Is CAF in effect now (Broadband providers paying into USF) and if so, what is the current % rate?
4) Does it matter how my upstream classifies themselves versus how I classify myself? (for example, if they've obtained CLEC status or not, or im not a CLEC).
5) Does it matter how I use the circuit?  
6) Any specific FCC code to point to, that specifies this clearly?
 
Figured Id ask, before I go searching through regulation code.
