hi,

is anyone else experiencing several 10- 20 adhoc disconnects from the network.

any ideas on where my problem might be? modem ? router?

using USB modem, router, directional aerial with line of sight to SABC building and excellent signal.

thanks

This is a notorious and recurrent problem with the Auckland Park BS.

The problem is caused by a faulty antenna or power amplifier or combination of both on the basestation itself, as revealed to me when Ed Hall used to work for iBurst. I used to have a customer who connected to that BS and I was called to site when this happened and I had to get an answer from iBurst because the customer was really irate...

It usually does this after thunderstorms but I am surprised it's doing it again in the winter.
