Re: Neighbors satelite dish is overhanging on my roof

Treat it like an over-hanging tree branch.

Call Dish network not the company that installed it if they are a RSP. You need to call Dish and tell them how this dish is installed. The way it is installed fails QAS standards, they will most likely remove the dish as they are not allowed to penatrate a tile, or metal roof

Why? The OP has nothing to do with where it's physically mounted on someone Else's roof. Besides I think it was stated it was mounted to a sewer vent which already penetrates the roof.

I had called Dish they would not do anything the installation was not in their system.

After the dish network dish was put there
I have been having the following problems
1. having issues with Wi-Fi connetions in the room below the dish
2. having problem with cell service on the 1st floor below the dish
I did not have these issues before it was put there.
The pipe it is attached to is clay and the coax cable runs across the ridge to the roof and goes though the window frame on the 3rd floor. My Roofer will not finish the roof until my neighbors move the Dish and the coax cable. the only problem is they refuse to move the cable and dish. my city is no help.

A friend of mine has a simmular problem her neighbor has a 20ft horizontal antenna on his roof that is over my friends roof. my friends Roof needs to be repaired but every roofer she calls, they refuse to work on because of the large antenna. she has been trying to have the antenna taken down.
The city where i live in will not do anything.

I'm not sure why your roofer can't just work around it. However the proper thing for you to do would be to send your neighbor a letter certified mail informing them that their dish extends over on your property and is in the way of your roofer redoing your roof. It should say they have 30 days to move the dish so it is not extending over the property line or you will move it for them. That doesn't mean that after 30 days you can just go rip it off and throw it on the ground breaking it though. I would like to point out your roofer extended your roofing across that same property line and onto their roof, so if you really push the dish issue they might push back.

there is already a war over my Wi-Fi
they want access to my internet

Simple solution is to tell them "I don't have wireless internet. It must be another neighbor's WiFi."

Just turn off the SSID on the wifi device. It won't show up on a wifi search but it will work just the same. You just have to know the SID to connect to it going forward.

On a side note: You could turn your PC off and give them the key. Once they get onto your network you grab their mac address and ban it. They can never get on your network again with that network device. I normally go the other way. I ban all device except the mac address of the devices in my house. They could spoof a mac to get on still but my $&# if they go to that trouble you've got bigger issues.

"Always check your cable and satelite bill to make shure that you are not paying for boxes that you don't have "

let's see....you have...

1. pesky neighbors
2. neighbors trying to steal / hack wifi
3. leaking house [wall and roof]
4. uncooperative city
5. cell issues
6. did I mention stupid, if not dangerous neighbors..

»Re: Cause more Wi-Fi theft
said by hrickpa:

I had several people knock on my door asking for the WPA key for my Wi-Fi connection. I live in a row home one side of me is an empty house the other side is my neighbors. in 2004 I shut off the Wi-Fi my neighbors had a fit over me shutting the Wi-Fi off. I move the only wireless desktop and hard wired it until upgraded my router that supported WPA/wpa2
as of right now where I live the 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi is crowded
I am using 802.11a 5Ghz Wi-Fi WPA-AES enterprise using a free radius program and using MAC filtering. three access points one on each floor

The city where I live they want to use GPS to locate the Wi-fi connections so they can tax secured Wi-Fi

7. i forgot, stalkers too...

I am having problems with someone trying to get my WPA2 key

some one had posted an ad on the internet that they were offering a $500 reward to the person to hack my WPA2 key.
The ad's were removed. I have been seeing people in a car across the street from where I live. when go outside they pull away This has been happening for a few days
on Friday April 24th some one rang my door bell, the person at my door wanted to give them my WPA2 key
i am using WPA2-PSK (AES).
the problem i have that the police here will not do anything.

in the city i live the highest crime is band-with theft and utility theft
Reading PA.

I would move if I were you....like one poster said before, it looks like you have BIG issues with neighbors

my SSID is No free loaders - »Re: wireless security

»Re: wireless security

My SSID is changed and is hidden.
and used the grc site to create a new WPA key
I still have people trying
hopefully they will give up soon or I will use 802.11a

what's stopping his stalker / freeloader / hacker neighbors from knocking again on his door and asking for both ssid and password since they know this guy has internet because he plays online games...??

Reading is a dump. You couldn't pay me to live there. Only reason I even venture there is for hockey..

Op: Mount something to the chimney that hangs directly in front of the dish. Write on the back of it " No signal for you!" signed DishNazi.

Get a new roofer or inform this one that if it's on your property, or overhangs your property, that he/she has your permission to "remove" it or even move it of his/her way. Put it in the contract !

that must be an amateur radio antenna, the city would get a BIG fine, and maybe some other action from the FCC, if they forced it to be taken down, as the FCC has claimed jurisdiction over amateur radio operations and antennas, and allow very limited control by states or cities etc. over that, mostly safety, and limited cosmetic considerations.. satellite TV is similar in protection.

That is quite incorrect, the FCC has laid down restrictions in relation to Over The Air antennas and Direct Broadcast Systems such as Dish, Direct or FTA, but hams such as myself do not fall under those restrictions.

"Q: I want to install an antenna for broadcast radio or amateur radio. Does the rule apply to me?

A: No. The rule does not apply to antennas used for AM/FM radio, amateur ("ham") radio (see 47 C.F.R. §97.15), Citizen's Band ("CB") radio or Digital Audio Radio Services ("DARS")."
