Hi People, I am currently part of a Wireless Mesh community in South Africa. We currently have a network of 13 nodes. All of these nodes run WRT54G's with Freifunk / OLSR Firmware. This past weekend, I setup a link which is 7.3km in length. There is a WRT54G (V2.2) running Freifunk Firmware (OpenWRT) and a 24dbi Parabolic Grid at each end. Our signal strengh is good - RSSI 60, Noise 90 and our pings our fine - 2ms, 3ms etc. However, when running the "never ending download" test from the router's status page, the speeds never get above 20kb a second. I have two other links from my house, 1 is 4km and 1 is 3.7km and on both of these, I experience download speeds (on lan, not internet) of around 1.7mbit a second... I have tried the obvious stuff - re-aligning antennas, changing channels, decreasing rates, etc but nothing seems to help Is there anyone out there that may have come across something similiar and would know how I could go about fixing it?
