Maintenance and System Log

  • 2011-07-20: Showed up to reconfigure the eth0 (external) interface after we were unplugged from a Freewire network and plugged back into a T1. Also noted some changes to wifi infrastructure since last year. --RussellSenior

  • 2010-09-15: Installed replacement PoE injector (salvaged from NodeHawthorne), reset both APs and reconfigured in order to reset the passwords for remote management (see WeeklyMeeting20100915) --RussellSenior

  • 2010-09-01: Diagnosing problems, could not get DHCP (or very poorly) through the downstairs AP. A power cycle resulted in failure, cause later determined to be a faulty AC->48VDC adapter. In the process of diagnosis, managed to destroy case of the PoE injector. Left device off, for obvious reasons (see WeeklyMeeting20100901) --RussellSenior

  • 2009-12-30: Replaced the old NuCab "number-one" with AlixCab "orb". --RussellSenior

  • 2009-01-16: Responding to another reported outage. Found that the upstairs AP was not passing DHCP. Could associate, had a strong signal, and alternatively could ping it from the nucab side, but DHCP wasn't getting through. Found the IT guy and power-cycled the Cisco (maybe for the first time in 4+ years) and it started working again. --RussellSenior

  • 2008-09-10: Responded to an outage, discovered that DNS was broken, apparently due to old nameservers in /etc/bind/named.conf.forward, which are no longer reachable. Changed them to current Integra nameservers, and it started working again. --RussellSenior

  • 2007-04-12: Found the NuCab extremely sluggish after 116 days of uptime. A reboot seemed to help considerably. --RussellSenior

  • 2006-05-26: Futher log entries can be found in Adhocracy.

  • 2006-05-12: DonPark and RussellSenior stopped by to check on a trouble report. The folks in WorldCupCoffee said that they had trouble with dropouts. Don and Russell didn't see the problem in the lobby between WorldCup and HotLips Pizza. We downloaded large files and got consistent speeds the whole time. Russell speculated that clients might be hopping between the two APs and maybe that's causing trouble somehow. Suggested the SSID on the upstairs one be permuted slightly to prevent AP hopping. Otherwise, no idea what might be happening.

  • 2005-10-03: Regular system updates installed. (- KeeganQuinn)
