Easton Residents Network Greenhaven

After some initial problems (possibly static) affecting the access point, the installation at Greenhaven elderly residents supported accommodation is now (20/4/4) up and running. Greenhaven has two Red Hat Linux machines in a communal area wirelessly connected to Easton Community Centre. The warden, Ron Corbett, is an enthusiastic supporter of the project and is looking forward to encouraging the residents in making full use of the facility. This is the first residents installation and we are looking forward to completing the other nine in the forthcoming weeks. We intend to generate some suitable publicity at an opening bash. Watch this space!

    Is the access running WDS? There are a couple of people nearby who’d like to connect. What aerial was used?

    Yes the acess point (AP) is running Wireless Distrubution System (WDS) and the rest of the street should be okay to log in using either a wireless card or an AP. The Linksys WRT54g is connected by coax to a Yagi directional antenna mounted on the gable end of the building.
