6pm: Back to trying to get Commotion to work like I want it to. If the Irish
coffee does not get to me first. |
8:30pm: The "Irish Coffee" is a reference to the OpenWRT shell login page... I got frustrated again with Commotion's attempt to have a slicker friendlier web interface than bare OpenWRT. I'm back to a default current OpenWRT load, and things worked well quickly. This is home base.. going to play from there.

which at least works, has a good set of preset configurations
and was educational. It's also limited and tuned up for hammers.
It makes me want to re-load Commotion and see if what I learned was useful in making it work
better. Maybe even fix some of the issues and post them back to Commotion.

|2015-08-04||Mobile network gateway. For fun, and because I could, I stuck one of the Ubiquity Bullet M2's and Antenna's on the roof our small RV. As the Bullet M2 can be used as a client, access point, gateway, etc.. it might be useful. As the RV aready has 2 different GPRS (AT&T and Verizon) upstreams as well as a hi-gain directional WiFi uplink, this could provide aggregate upstreams and a local WiFi hotspot, as well as allow the RV to connect to WiFi (legal and with permission) signals. Rationalization: Could provide mesh/localized services to events...|

beaker.chattmetro.net = A mesh node, not a gateway, but also supplies a local WiFi AP.
