  1. UPDATE: i gave up on using the dwl-2100ap. well it sorta broke. the lan light would stay on even though theres no cable connected. when i do connect a cable then it starts blinking like hell. i tried resetting it in every way possible but it wont work no more. i can get to it wirelessly but thats it. the only use i have for it is if i set it to wireless repeater and i am not sure thats a good thing. in any case. i decided to use an RG cable from the antenna which rolls down to the apartment and then connects to the access point. this time i am using the dwl900ap which seems to be fun
  2. hello. I hope this is the right sub-forum to post this in. i tried linsysinfo.org but no one has said anything and its been a few days. i am in need of help in regards to this. i just bought a wap54g access point and i am having an issue with it functioning as a ap client. when i do a site survey it wont show any sites. sometimes it'll show one or two or none at all. i am currently stationed in baghdad iraq and we get our internet wirelessly. people here use access points as ap clients to get their signal. i have a dlink 2100ap that went dead. i also happen to have a dlink 9

  4. so you think the problem is the antenna? well i guess if i do reposition it i am going to do it vertically this time. i should mention that the sma cable i have in the picture has been kinda acting a bit loose. also.the small little tip that connects to the access point screw. i kinda have to push it while screwing it in. i am going to try to buy another but i'll deal with one for now. also, i had an incident with the antenna where the little tip off of the feedhorn broke off. so i kinda taped it back on. i asked lots of people that supposdely know and they said its no big deal.
  5. the one on the roof receiving the signal from the isp is a d-link DWL-2100AP. it was bought in iraq so the firmware version says 2.00EU. the other one i have in the house is also a D-Link. its a DWL-900AP+. same thing. bought in iraq. i flashed it with a us firmware so it just says 3.09 which is fine. the reports i showed you above are from the 2100.
  6. on a side note, i noticed my speed started to decrease so i logged into the access point on the roof and i restarted it. the speed picked up again. its been about 15 minutes since i restarted it and i am concerned about the "Statistics" page. theres lots of failure counts. and its only been 15 minutes. in regards to the tracert, here are the results:
  7. well no he doesnt exactly have the telex one. i was just showing you the "kind" he has. and i dont mean to sound like a kid dwelling over the antenna kind and position. I just heard that the higher the signal is the better the quality and the better the ping with fewer dropped packets and such.
  8. the reason i am hammering the antenna issue is because a friend of mine also has an antenna however its a Yagi antenna. his is about 5 meters away from mine (On the same roof) and we b.oth get internet from the same provider. he has no APs. straight from the antenna to the pc's wireless dlink card. his signal strength is 97% most of the time. i did a search on the web and i believe this is the one he has. so perhaps flipping mine vertically can do better or if not get one such as his.
  9. is the internet provider. my internal lan is for the gateway and the laptops are .200 and .172. i am using smoothwall for these reasons: 1) its caching proxy helps in regards to speed a bit. 2) provides dhcp for the laptops and 3rd reason is "some protection". do you recommend any other router/gateway packages? i tried Clarkconnect the other day and i find smoothwall to be a bit easier to manage although I think clarkconnect maybe faster in providing speeds. what do you think about the antenna question? whether vertical or horizontal orientation is
  10. Ok so i am currently in iraq and i get my internet wirelessly using a 24dbi parabolic grid antenna from a provider who says at first limited me to 64down/64up kilobits/sec (ya. bits NOT bytes) so i called and bitched and she said she increased it to 256kb/128kb. although i am seeing some improvements i am still having download problems. its quite a mess really. in iraq the internet is provided wirelessly because saddams underground fiberoptics isnt being used and with all the bombings who would fix it if it breaks and all. so we're stuck with a diagram like this: i get internet wirelessly
