What you should include in your post
•1. Your WISP's name
•2. Your WISP's claimed speeds you should receive
•3. The manufacture of the equipment the WISP has provided you with
•4. How far you are from the WISP's Access Point
•5. The frequency your equipment uses (e.g 900Mhz, 2.4/5.8Ghz ect.)
•6. The dBi of the antenna your equipment uses
•7. Do the issues happen at all times
of the day, or only at peak usage
Some things you should check before posting:
•1. Is your computer free of spyware, Virues, or any other programs that can use bandwidth?
•2. If your having problems, have you talked to any neighbors that experience it also?
•3. Run a Line test »/linequality , you can link the results in your post
•4. Try a program such as Ping Plotter
and post your results after at least a 2-24 hour period. Or you can use the site tool »/schedule
•5. Power off any
phone, router, baby monitor, ect. that is using the same frequency as your WISP gear.
•6. Some hardware allows you to check the signal quality (listed in dBm e.g -45 dBm, lower means better), if you can list this in your post.
•7. Have you had heavy rainfall before troubles? Rain itself will not cause issues, but if moisture has leaked into the connectors it will cause problems
•8. Do you have trees or other obstructions blocking you from achieving Line Of Sight(LOS) to the Access Point? Any frequencies higher than 900Mhz will be affected by this--
