Maintenance and System Log
2006-06-27: Not able to get IP address. WAP signal appears strong. Wired terminals are working, but no joy with wireless. Grafitti in the bathroom indicates that the WiFi was not working yesterday either, though yesterday morning things were fine.
Unrelated issue: The WAP signal fades in an out intermittently. There is a spare one at FreeGeek that might serve as a replacement. Contact richard at freegeek dot org.
2006-06-27: When I got there, the IT person who is cool and supportive of PTP and a co-founder of freegeek, had fixed the problem. the ethernet cable into the access point was plugged into the WAN port not one of the LAN ports. classic. -- DonPark
2006-07-06: We have a replacement WAP here donated by Free Geek that needs to be properly configured. Also a LinkSys. The old one is starting to drop the signal intermittantly. Contact richard AT freegeek DOT org (or stillflame AT same) for info if needed. The replacement unit is under the old unit.
2006-09-18: Yesterday nocat was not popping up. Smyrf rebooted the nocat box and all was fine. This morning nocat was not coming up. I manually rebooted, but it still didn't work.
2008-02-18: Red and Black moved to a new location at the corner of SE 12th and Oak. I got a call a few weeks ago from Carly asking me for help setting up the node. The first few trips were aborted for variou reasons, including a popped circuit breaker and then confusion over how freegeek set up their kiosk boxes (turns out, a ltsp thin-client thing). Decided I could just plug our device directly into the netgear cable modem. Finding a plug was a challenge, but I found an empty plug on the outside wall and ran a length of cat5 to it. --RussellSenior
2008-04-03: Setting up port forward for secure-shell to allow remote admin. --RussellSenior
2009-01-09: Russell bricks the Buffalo, replaces it with a PTP WGT634U. Restarts wifidog.
2010-11-17: Replaced the reportedly flakey WGT634U (looks like it's been knocked onto the floor a few times, broken antenna, etc) with an Accton MR3201A device, acting as a self-contained access point. Resolved a small bug in /etc/config/dhcp. The port forward is currently broken, will need to fix it. --RussellSenior
2011-05-04: Stopped by to check on an outage of a week or so, found a different router there broadcasting a redandblack beacon, inquired, was referred to PAX, their tech dude, talked to PAX and he indicated they'd had some kind of problem. I offered to fix it, he declined. Will need to collect the router soonest, possibly this evening on the way to the Weekly. --RussellSenior
