Thread: WiMax and internet connection sharing

  1. #1

    Default WiMax and internet connection sharing

    Will you be able to use a WiMax setup for internet connection sharing across a network of 6 or 7 pc's ?

    Family in C.T. has no access to ibust or adsl and 3g just plain sucks where they are due to signal hassles (will the same hassles affect WiMax)

    You should be able to share WiMAX like any other internet connection

    Well if they dont have any wireless services avalible then I doubt there will be any WiMAX support. its possible though. You will just have to find out from Telkom if there is a tower near by.

    A tower "near by" can be 10kms away. I've got seven bars (9 max, 4 required) and I'm 10Kms with no line of sight.

    Default Map

    Does anyone know of a Wimax map or website to see Wimax availability (Like the Cell Companies 3g Coverage maps) before phoning 10219

    What area you in DavidP? I'm also in Cape Town (Diep River) and apparently I'm getting my wimax in a week. I thought you had to be in line of sight??

    Default AnyOne on Wimax in Honeydew/LittleFalls

    Anyone got Wimax in Honeydew. I can see the Little Falls hills/"mountain" from were I am moving into.

    Any issues found?

    Only problem is getting Telkom to Figure out where the complex is (10219 seems to have a problem reading maps. The have the complex in a completely different street)

    You can connect more than one computer a time to WiMax, by either:

    Using your router to dial the PPPoE connection, and then conencting via the router to the internet,

    or have multiple PPPoE dialup connections on each computer.

    Which why you wanna use?

    If you worried about the signal strength in your area, the company that will install your WiMax will first to a signal check to see if the signal is ok.

    WiMax is a fixed wireless connection, so it should be 99% stable if you get a signal...
