    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I spoke with the airport manager yesterday, he actually already has a set of nanostation M2's to get across the runway to a second AP over there. So I picked up a loco M2 and will use that to pull into an TP Link n300 AP which i liked because it was priced right and POE.

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I was looking at the WeMo / TP Link wifi outlets. They are app controlled and connect to existing wifi networks.

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    This is a uncontrolled privately owned airport so not concerned so much with access and spectrum concerns, and while I agree this is an ideal solution but a bit more than I was hoping. There is a guest WiFi as well as a WiFi for members and aircraft owners. I am hoping to connect the outlet to...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    The only thing I am looking to do is control a Wifi outlet, I dont need high bandwidth. Why would I want PTP over a repeater. Also with PTP wouldn't i need a receiver outside and an AP inside? Seems like if i could fine a repeater with external antenna this would have less moving parts while...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    This looks like an outdoor AP, would it work as a repeater? or would i use 2 of these, one to bridge the WiFi then run an Ethernet cable inside to a second which would work as an AP inside the hangar?

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I unfortunately do not have the ability to run a cable. This is a metal hangar at an airport, there is decent wifi around, but inside the hangar I cant get cell or wifi signal with the door closed but would like to be able to turn on the engine preheater and let it run for some time. I was...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I am looking for an (hopefully) inexpensive way to extend WiFi into a metal shed. There is wifi outside, but thanks to essentially being a Faraday cage I can not get WiFi into the shed to control a WiFi outlet to turn a small heater off and on. I have been looking a bit but havent quite found...

    HTPC and work PC in one, but two locations.

    HDbaseT 2.0 supports video and USB over cat 6 cable. However I don't know how many HDbaseT extenders support this yet (I know monoprice doesn't yet) so you might end up running 2 cat cables and get a high quality USB over cat extender. In my case I use the extron units (largly because I found a...

    Ultrabook recommendations

    I ended up getting the Cabon X1. I considered the Macbook, however I am not interested in OS X. Overall I've liked it so far. My only complaint is the active buttons along the top of the keyboard. I often find myself accidentally hitting them with the way I hold my hand when using the direction...

    Ultrabook recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations on an ultrabook. I am coming from an older thinkpad x200 convertible. I got it just about 5 years ago and its been a great laptop. It still runs quite well with an SSD and I am fairly happy with it. However the battery is shot and that has got me thinking...

    Looking for Android App recommendations. $5 promo codes for favorite recommendations.

    I decided rather than pick favorites, i put everyone's name who submitted an app onto a piece of paper and drew out of a bowl. Figured with all the great apps this would be easier than picking favorites for my 2 choices. Congrats to Vermillion, Bone_Enterprise, FiveFig. YGPM with google play...

    Galaxy S4 HSPA+ vs. HTC One LTE?

    I personally love the HTC One, HTC seems to be more committed to updates from what I have seen and having HTCDev.com to unlock my phone's bootloader is a nice touch (you still have a bit of a cat and mouse game with the carriers however for root to unlock). I upgraded from the HTC One X to the...

    Looking to buy a new phone.

    I recently upgraded from the HTC One X to the HTC One purely for the front facing speakers. In all honesty they make a huge difference. The reason for my choice wasnt so much for media ( I use bluetooth headphones for that 95% of the time) but for GPS use in the care. With rear speakers I have a...

    Looking for Android App recommendations. $5 promo codes for favorite recommendations.

    Rooted and running Android Revolution HD. As for recommendations, yes this is partly for me, but its also because I was surprised that an epic "List your favorite Android App" thread doesn't seem to exist (I admittedly only browsed, not searched for one, also same can be said for iOS, but...

    First off, If this is not allowed mods please shoot me a PM and I apologize and will withdraw the bounty (I did a real quick scan of the rules and didnt see anything that specifically prohibited this) Ok, I have an HTC One currently and have a Nexus 7 coming my way. I am looking for some app...

    Breaking Bad Sparks Global Piracy Craze

    Its not a basic cable channel anymore. It's not premium like HBO, but at least for me you have to buy it as part of a package. For me it got to the point where cable was no longer worth the cost considering 90% of what I was watching was available OTA with an antenna and AMC / Discovery were...

    Microsoft's Hit Or Miss Strategic Partnership History

    I wish Microsoft would take a bit more of an apple role in hardware and ecosystem development. I think this is the issue with their partnerships. They develop a platform and put it on the table and hope that a partner is interested and knows how to turn it into a thriving ecosystem. Look at...

    Trying to setup OpenVPN client on Ubiquti Edge Router Lite

    I am trying to get OctaneVPN setup on my ERL and I have to admit I am a complete fish out of water with trying to get this working. Basically what i have done was take the .openvpn file and removed the CA, CERT and KEY sections creating new files with the data from these sections. I then...

    [Warm] - Unlocked 16GB HTC One X $349 @ Groupon

    I am going to disagree with the Sense and Android assessment as HTC has been quite supportive of unlocking these phones through HTCdev.com. Get your unlock code and load what ever ROM you want. While technically correct on the specs, Its not a huge difference at least to me. I have the One...

    Seagate Solid State Hybrid Drive issues

    I picked up one of the new Seagate hybrid drives and installed it in a thinkpad SL510. I was having issues with the drive making a "chirping" sound and becoming unresponsive. I ran seatools and it failed. I exchanged the drive and installed the new drive. I am now getting the same chirping of...

    Facebook Wants To Charge $1M For A Video Ad?

    I have to say this is a stupid idea. I already now have to surf the internet with my speakers muted and only unmute them when i actually want to watch something because there are sites with stupid autoplay videos or embeded video ads all over the place.

    Looking for DD-WRT compatible router suggestions

    Im not set on DD-WRT. I was going there as I used it before (in the 2000's like you said :-P ) and have some knowledge with it. The other reason i was thinking DD-WRT was for the features I am looking for I figured it would be cost effective. If I can get one of the other solutions you...

I just want something that is rock solid and wont need rebooting on a regular basis and will support DD-WRT. The reason I am looking for this is i would...

    AppleTV for XBMC

    I have an older 50" 720p plasma so 1080p is not a huge concern. As for the first gen apple TV with the broadcom crystalHD card and the full install of xbmcbuntu rather than the iOS app i believe that full 1080p is possible from my googling.

    Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet

    USB has quite limiting distance restrictions (I think its around 15' but i could be wrong off the top of my head). However if you did want to do this seriously Extron sells something that would work for this. They are extenders that convert to Cat5 cabling and allow up to 450 feet. I use them at...

I almost imported a Nokia 808 but figured since its an end of life OS the application pool would be shrinking...

    How do you video call on an android?

    Pretty much this. It's sad. I've been using Nokia phones purchased unlocked for years and have been awaiting this feature.

    Premium GPS navigation app for Android

    Premium GPS navigation app for Android

    Sadly I don't live in an area that I can leave my GPS out and my current GPS is on its last legs. So I would prefer to consolidate devices. I find the screen of the One X is a good size with a suction mount for GPS use.

    Premium GPS navigation app for Android

    I think google is on the right track, but they really need to add the multipoint routing and POI catagories. If i am looking for a specific destination it works well, but if i am driving from CT to Maine and i need gas along the way google sucks from my use so far.
