Nope...Nand..Nyet...Nayooul...

All you can do a a six second reset and default the unit to the original configuration.

Thanks

Well, I did it I reset it now I dont have Internet. It is my unit and tc3net wants to charge me to reconfig it. I'm not willing to pay for it. There is a wi fi hot spot about .75 miles from my house. I was wornding if my ps2-17d could be used to pick it up & if how would I config it to do that?

Well, of course you don't have any internet now. You erased the necessary tc3net settings and they are entitled to charge you to fix what you broke.
The UBNT WIKI has instructions on how to set up a UBNT adio to access a hot spot.

Re: user name & password

They set a private password because
they didn't want you to have access
to their proprietary system settings
and the security features that protect
all users.

If you destroyed the settings, they
would charge for putting them back.

You might be able to use the PS2 for
a WiFi hotspot. Contact the owners
and find out what their settings are.
They may also have security and
a password for use.

You can search for local settings by
doing a site survey. Read about it:

I will play with it. I can set my iPhone to be a hot spot and can see the iPhone on the ps2-17 just can't get Internet to go through it yet. I'll play with it some more.

Re: user name & password

I can see how this is gonna play out. PS2 with 17 dBi antenna set at 26 dBm TPO pointed to hotspot. That would overload the hot spot's receiver and then no one will get service.

Re: user name & password

This isn't making sense, and when things don't make sense...we're not getting the entire picture.

1) Why did you decide to use your own radio instead of one the tc3net would have supplied?

2) Why did you want to change any settings in your radio that they had working just fine for you? It was your radio, but they were graciously letting you use it to connect to their system - they had every right to prevent you from accessing the radio and potentially mucking up their network.

3) Why pay for another ISP when you could pay tc3net to reset the radio?

4) What are you going to do when that hotspot bans you from their system because you are over powering their radio?
