Hi Rohan,
Welcome to the network.
I've modified the config at HVC and OSPF is now active on the canopy's.
refer to http://www.melbourne.wireless.org.au/wiki/index.php?NodeHVC
and allocate yourself an address in the subnet.
The way to configure things your end is;
Plug the canopy into an eth port on your router & make the 10.10.1.x
address on that port, not the canopy.
then configure ospf on this router.
You are welcome to use two addresses and use one on the canopy if you
desire so you can still monitor it.

hello there,
last sunday the 29th we finally accomplished what we've been trying to
do for the last few months, we got a connection to HVC from JSG in North
we'd been trying with all sorts of things prior to; improperly
terminated lengthy rg213 + cantennas, omnis and parabolics neither of
which amounted to anything. finally we got our hands on a canopy from
tim hogard - which i must admit didn't immedietly work presumably
because of noise- + a satellite dish from Dave Ashburner and there a
working solution was born. 
instantly the difference was observed even though we hadn't calculated
the correct angle to place the canopy on the sattelite dish (we rather
just adhoced it). practically immedietly the thing registered.
anyways now the next step is to confirm the configuration of the thing
and get a permanent setup hhappening. 
from memory i recall tim telling me: rssi needs to be above 700 and the
jitter below 15, is this correct? (i was getting rssi easily above 800
and jitter at 1-2).
and then next up i have to allocate myself an IP between and
thats what i;ve sussed out so far. if it is properly configured what
should i expect to happen? can i google? which addresses should i ping
to confirm servers and vital services and all that.
i imagine the melbwireless site should come up or something or maybe
tims abnormal site i dont know but i'm keen to find out!!!
ps. i just now applied to get my own ip allocation (however that fits
into the scheme of things)
