Journal Journal: Killer WiFi

I just got a killer wifi connection with a local WISP in Las Vegas, NV. Im about 1.1 miles from the tower with direct line of site and im pulling 2mbps (up and down) using thier simple panel antenna. The hardware is stored inside of a box underneath the antenna. Upon opening it up i discovered that it is absically a pc 104 mobo with ethernet and an attached cisco aironet 350 series wifi card. As soon as I get a MMCX pigtail, up goes the cantenna! Also, they dont limit speed. What you can pull is what you get. I wonder how well a 24dBi parabolic dish would do... hehe.

Almost forgot, $30 a month! keyon.com . tell them 702-804-4798 sent you. Thx
