Hmm. I'm getting ~550kb/sec over an 18km link (with no packet loss at
all, are you getting any?), and that's with 30mW cards; want to see
what it's going to be like once I replace the setup with some 200mW
What sort of cards/antennae are you using? We're using 30 something
(32? 35?) dbi directional antennae. Play around with the cards power
and sensitivity, and channel allocation can also make a huge difference
depending on other noise.
Let me know more about your setup; I'm keen as anything to hear about
others long distance connections. Doesn't seem like many people have
done it; and the people I have spoken to think packet loss and
<300kb/sec is acceptable. Pah!
