Address 192.168.1.20

We are newbies trying to program bullet 2 to send internet access about 2 miles away but can't complete step 3 because we can't access the address as indicated. Can anyone help?

Re: Address 192.168.1.20

Sorry, I don't know what 'step 3' is,
Klaus; in the AirOS guide?

Be very sure when you deploy any
Ubiquiti devices that you change any
added ones to a different IP address.
They are all set to 192.168.1.20, and
if you place two on the same network
they will conflict with each other.

To access that address, be sure your
PC is set to an address in the same
scope (and not the same as the
Bullet). For example, use 192.168.1.21
or 192.168.1.101. The mask must be
255.255.255.0 .

Best to use Internet Explorer 7 or 8.

If this still doesn't work, try pinging
the Bullet; if no response then reset
the Bullet to factory defaults. Dave

Set up both radios on your work bench first, THEN take them out in the field.

Re: Address 192.168.1.20

Why is it so hard to configure the picostation2 Where do I actually setup th IP address mask. I went tinto the alternate settings of my network setting and input the IP 192.168.1.20 and the mask 255.255.255.0 and I still am lost. I am about ready to send this damn thing back.

You have an address conflict with the Pico's default 192.168.1.20 address.

Re: Address 192.168.1.20

I'm not sure what you mean by that.

Ubiquiti sells commercial/industrial products;
they assume you know network and WiFi
basics. It's not a consumer item.

This forum is very good at answering most
questions--even if you are a consumer. Dave

This is not a UBNT problem. It is an uneducated end user problem that has no clue how basic wired networking works. You can dumb down instructions only so far..

Agreed. I don't like when we give advice but the person gets mad because its not the answer he wanted.
I mean, hey, we can tell people what they want to hear, but that doesn't mean its going to help them.

What's probably the most frustrating is the

No matter how unreasonable the fit, they ignore

I equate these people to someone who would buy a manual transmission car without knowing how to drive it. Its just not a good idea. I try to not get involved with those kinds.
Funny story, I bought a truck with manual transmission and I didn't know how to drive it. I made the dealer take me out and teach me how to drive a stick shift before I bought it.
But if I wasn't able to drive the truck after he taught me how to do it, I wouldn't have bought it. That's the difference between me and those people.

all advice and keep insisting on using this stuff. Dave

I think this is because no one likes to be told that they are wrong and some people take it a step further and won't admit it when they are.

Don't shout that too loud Dave,

I left a voice mail on their support line 2 weeks ago and have still not received a reply. It was needing to discuss a mass application of the M900 and M5 Rockets in Iowa. I am going to be facing high winds, ice, and temperatures as low as -50F so before I jumped into this and sold the client on $125,000 worth of equipment I wanted to talk to the experts direct on things like ice loading on the Yagi, the lowest temperature that the Rocket can work in realistically (not just the posted spec), how strong the 3 ft dish mount is, wind loading of the dish and so forth. Unfortunately....

So I will try again next week.

What is this yagi of which you speak?

IIRC, wind loading for the dishes is in the data sheets.

a quick search on here will reveal that many have asked about extreme low temperature, and the answer is always "low temperature is no problem"

Re: Address 192.168.1.20

Mike, you are asking questions that likely
aren't well characterized by Ubiquiti. I
doubt they have answers for all the
extreme conditions you want to know about.

I doubt many manufacturers will.

And if you want to use a radio that isn't
specified to -50deg, why would you
expect the maker to have a definite
answer--except not to use it? Dave

Low temperature operation

:icon_cool:I am not needing a radio to work that low, the specification is -30C for the Rocket, but is that an actual temp that it will work to or should I rate my heaters to keep the cabinet above 0 degrees, that is the kind of info I am looking for.

I have a good enclosure system with thermostatic control on the heater and fan but I have to size the heater for the outside to inside differential temperature. Since the client told me that they have had temperatures to -50 worst case, if a realistic temperature is 0 degrees for the radio, my heater must be sized to keep the 50 degree differential. If the -30C is a fact, then the heater becomes a lot smaller, see what I mean?

Re: Address 192.168.1.20

Actually not. If all you have to do is
assure -20deg (which provides a nice
safety buffer), then design the heater
to handle that difference at worst case.

You don't have to agonize over whether
the spec is exactly correct. Dave

This is disturbing. Not that you didn't get a reply, but your questions.

The first disturbing bit is you're considering jumping into a $125,000 contract without sound knowledge of/experience with the product.

The second is the question of ice loading on a yagi. Most any RF guy could tell you that even a small amount of ice on a yagi will give you signal degradation so the weight issue would be secondary.
