I posted a photo of what happenned to our 2.4 antenna over Christmas, and another trip to the mountain to check out the packet loss on the 5.8 found that severe winds a couple weeks back had turned the sectoral antenna almost 120 degrees.
I was maxing out the last 10 days at about 3 Mbps, and 7% packet loss hitting the backside of the antenna. Been doing a lot of ‘refreshes’ lately!
FTP from server on the same backbone provider. Not too shabby.
I had to do IE… the Firefox download of Thuderbird 1.5 went so fast I didn’t have time to hit FN/PRTSC. Files from downloads.com
This is to show what level of service can be delivered by a technology that’s been derided a lot until the BIG players got interested. Nowadays you’d think Verizon invented it and did the R&D.
Going to dash in and grab the VoIP phone now the packet loss is addressed. Ping from here - mtn - office (over 20 miles total) under 2 ms.
