The Brothers WISP 101 – Cheap OTDR, UBNT Data Collection, IPv6 Tracing



This week Greg,Tomas, Nick, and Tommy talk about networking and listen to traffic driving by Tomas’ house.

This week we talk about:
– George A had a cheap SM OTDR he likes…I wonder if he still does?
– Use caution with cambium 3000s and it looks like 4.4.2 firmware is “pretty good” so far.
Several of us have played with the Mikrotik Audience so far: Review sample from ISPSupplies!
– IPv6 tracing – imcpv6 vs. udp
– Unifi LTE – LTE gateway
– Unifi Dream Machine – new router AP for the house
– Ubiquiti UAP-Beacon HD mesh AP
– UBNT stealthily enables data collection
– Why does Nick B maintain so many random domains?
– Tomas is introducing a “Linux-desktop-only” policy at Unimus – should be fun times…

Dan was having unifi APs with wireless backhauls not find the controller and fall back to default 192.168.1.20 addressing. Miller says turn off “Uplink Connectivity Monitor” under unifi settings > site
Greg was today years old when he learned IPv6 doesn’t do fragmentation. Path MTU Discovery.
Limit MACs per interface on a Mikrotik.
Danny is trecking through the US soon; he needs mega uploads for his videos…anyone wanna help?
