I’m starting a WISP. I set up a bench test site in my garage and put up a ePmP 3000 with a sector antenna as an AP.
I then set up a ePmp force 180 as a SM. And Updated all the firmwares.
The contractor placed the ePmp 3000 on the tower, put in a cabinet at the bottom, but we don’t have any power yet.
So, in testing… I set up a Netronix DC switch, put in a few batteries for temp power, and put in a PoE-powered Mirotik, and set it up to give out DHCP address. I powered the 3000 up, and I was able to log into it, and it looked like it was good.
Drove to my house (1mile away), and put the force 180 on the roof. power it up and logged in to 192.168.0.2, and It doesn’t appear to be connecting to the AP. Check the SSID, and Password, and still doesn’t log in.
Tried setting up a Force 300, and logged in, put in the SSID/pass, and still no connect here either?
Went back to the tower location, and everything looks good there…
So… no idea why it’s NOT connecting, when I had this up and running in my lab.
It’s set at 20 Mhz/5180 Mhz, and I checked both ways…
I’m at a loss now… don’t know where to go from here. Even though I don’t have a gateway, it should still connect and give me an address from the DHCP. Just doesn’t connect at all… Pretty ideal conditions being only 1 mile away and line of site, and very low spectrum where I’m at.
