Waiting on Access points/ router.

Allready have a 48 port 10/100/1000 cisco switch at bucketworks.

We are still looking for one more switch for the wiki workshop.

Ill see what i can find around here but may need to buy one.

#2

90% of the hardware is now at bucketworks.

In the wiki workshop we added a half rack to hold some networking equiptment and a switch.

Power needs to be moved or added to this rack before i can do anyfurther on that end of things.

 

#3

Durring the night i Upgraded most of bucketworks network to new equiptment.

Im still waiting on the router to recover from its castsrapic fail earlyer this morring.

i would suspect by then end of this weekend we should be back where we should be in terms of speeds :).

#4

its offical bucketworks now has 50 mb serivce http://www.speedtest.net/result/1788576558.png :)

#5

added a acceptable use policy to all wireless networks will have to hit continue once a day till we remove the Bucketworks(unsecure) network.

pro member now also has higher proirties  in terms of speed then bucketwork_guest.

#6

I don't know if this is intentional, but I connect via straight up ethernet cable and my network speed got significantly slower this morning.  I did a connection test last week and got 50 / 4.5.  I just tried the same test again right now and I got 1 / 1.

If that's intentional, I'm totally cool with that, since I understand rate limiting shared connections so that everyone gets a fair shot.  But if it's not intentional, it'd be great to have the speed back. ;-)

#7

hum... well i did enable rate limitations... but it should have been porporinal to the number of users on the network ill take a second look at it latter and see if  i can find anything that would do this.

#8

Heh, I can guarantee you that I was the only person on the network at the time.  I haven't seen anyone else here yet today. ;-)

But maybe it has to do with the way I'm connected?  Because I'm not coming in through either wireless.  I guess I'll experiment with the WiFi in a moment...

#9

Just tried with the "Bucketworks" wifi and got 1.0 / 0.645. I couldn't get connected to Pro Member, it says the password I have is wrong. Truthfully, I haven't used that network in a long time so the password I have might just be out of date. I'd write it here but it's a public forum. :-) Dan, if you can send me the current Pro Member password via e-mail, I'll test that guy out.

#10

david I do not belive i have your email address :).

#11

I am trying with Pro Member, and it's pretty bad atm. Very slow.

#12

ill look at it tonight :). and see what i can do.

#13

looks like over alocated the speed and it was complaing about it.

guest network 1mb x 1mb max

pro network 50 x 5 max

 

need an ok from tim or james to remove bucketworks(unsecure) network and start forceing non membors to use the guest wifi.

#14

Did the speed test some more this morning.  On both the Pro wifi and via the ethernet by my desk I got approx. 22 / 1.  I ran the test 3 times on each connection and the downspeed would jump around a bit.  I saw it 20, 22, 23, one time it burst up to 30.

In any case, much improved from yesterday! Thanks Dan!

#17

Can you create a brigade network with a separate password and 50x5 limits for trainings?

#15

no problem :). 

the speed should be good for now untill tim/james tells me other wise lol.

 

#16

static ip now in place.

 

we can now assign a static dns zone for bucketworks or schoolfactory if its wanted.

 

 

#18

we should be able to... might take the router some convincing though :).

#19

I am looking for the ability to have a private, professional speed network that has a password, but does not require me to share the Bucketworks members network with guests. Basically, a premium event network.

Could router handle this?

#20

yes its possiable just need to redo the net :P

#21

Cat5 cable is ordered. Wire should be run next week.
