Heya. I work for Obsidian Consulting Group - we do primarily traffic counting and billing systems for ISP's and similar. I'm really interested in the whole wireless thing, partially from a general geek "cool, I can use my laptop anywhere" angle, but also in terms of how things get routed and traffic monitored, how to build something that'll give people feedback on link quality and usage across the network, how to setup a good solid network that can deal with failures gracefully, etc etc. -

I have a very very small node in Coburg, running off a 2dbi antenna plugged into a cisco access point atm - that's changing as I get my own gear purchased and installed, I'm hoping to be able to put a decent strength omni on the roof and see who I can see. Although I'm in a near-dead-zone reception-wise, so I'm not expecting too much.

Update: Well, the other node is up, it's an Enterasys card in ad-hoc mode:

rhad:~# iwconfig eth2
eth2 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"bofh" Nickname:"rhadw"
         Mode:Ad-Hoc  Frequency:2.422GHz  Cell: 00:01:F4:EC:00:FD
         Bit Rate:2Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:1/3


rhad:~# ifconfig eth2
eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:01:F4:EC:00:FD
         inet addr:203.20.99.129  Bcast:203.20.99.255  Mask:255.255.255.224
         UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1


It's not really doing anything at this stage, but it's there. Awaiting various other people's antennas so we can mesh.
