Going wifi

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was very much inspired by Sara's posts about the Eagle (swag72) and realized that I could do a similar approach with what I had at hand, so I ordered an updated PCI mini card with external wifi antennas to go with my Shuttles.

I plan to put these on, or next to my OTAs. They lack many features of course, compared to the Eagle, but hope they'll work well enough.

I also need the GTOCP4 control box for the mount to complete the wifi setup.

Long way away still, but any little progress counts!

I'm sure you'll get it working. Wifi when it works can make life a lot easier.

Untill recently I was limited to either using a USB 3 portable HDD or running a LAN cable to transfer my captured data from the Obsy laptop.... Or ofcourse wait hours until it goes through on the 54mbps wifi, which in reality was something like 12mbps..

I put a router with bigger antennas between the PC router and the Obsy and got a 300mbps connection... Real transfer speed is at 100-120mbps...WAY  Better than before, not as good as on the gig it LAN but good enough for me to ditch the LAN cable from transfers and have a smooth VNC connection.

Once you have it all setup, you'll love it.
