After two hard work days - cleaning up kamikaze, recovering space byte-per-byte like playing with Lego - I'm now running my first robin Ubiquiti PS2 with a 12 dbi panel antenna, 450 mW out.

PS2 works either as gateway node or repeater node... by now with no APs but I hope to be able to raise up at least one VAP, maybe WPA-PSK protected.

It's really a shame that this jewel has only 4 MB flash.

Nice work Antonio. I wonder what kind of range you'll be able to get with this setup?

Also, what are your thoughts on building our own gear from Routerboard cards (particularly the 133 model)? I think I could throw a dual radio (802.11a mesh + 802.11g AP) node together using their stuff for around $200 per node. Perhaps that'd be worth investigating?

Congrats Antonio!! Robin/Ps2

I am extremely happy you succeeded. Ubiquity has several devices that all share similar chipsets.

With all sorts of applications we could apply them to. I have spent the better part of two days searching for alternative hardware, but the 4mb flash appears to be the norm.

Look forward to hearing more about it.

Hello
I have this Ubiquiti device and would like to use this firmware.
Why is not posible to have any AP now? In the future it will only have 1 AP and no more?
Is this a hardware issue? I would like to know if it's a hardware limitation or else. Because I want to buy more but use them with a ROBIN like the one for the Meraki.

Standard robin provides 2 APs:

- WPA-PSK private AP
- (open) public AP

Managing throttling and traffic control on public AP is in need of some other software such as tc and captive portal and other
kernel modules. So requested resources increase dramatically and unfortunately we do not have such space on /dev/mtdblock2.

The only limitation is the rootfs max size, that is 44 x 64kB (2.816MB).

Pardon my stupidity.
But wouldn't it be possible to deflate the system to the 16Mb RAM.
like running of a ramdisk?

After much anticipated breath holding by a group of us wanting to combine outdoor wireless with indoor (ROBIN) wireless, what is the current status on the ROBINization of Ubiquiti PS/LS and Nanostation?

Is there any hope for running ROBIN on a 4mb flash ? Confused

Should the group of us anxious to get our projects underway look to other possible equipment? Not that we don't continue to anyway.

Just my thoughts and perceptions, any input on the subject is greatly appreciated?

Thanks,

Fred

Thanks so much for the quick response. I look forward to the great news.

I can't wait to get started. I have a dozen projects lined up and ready to go. I notice that ROBIN is making the internet headlines. Great things are being said about it. It feels great to be on top of this.

Thanks,

Fred

Wow! I looked at the proposed spec on the picostation, and it's rated at 26dbm TX power. If my calculations are correct, that equates to about 400mw. And it's POE compatible to boot. Uses the Atheros 2315 chipset so it ought to be RO.B.IN compatible. Antonio, any idea when they will be available from Ubiquity? Smile

By 8/32, do you mean 8mb flash, 32mb ram?

So there is no chance to get robin in devices with 8 of flash and 16 of ram?

I also have some powerstations that I want to use for mesh networks, and they also have 4/16.

The preliminary spec on the product page says 16mb RAM and 4mb Flash. Maybe the released product will have more. Confused

Looks like there won't be a robin for the 4/16 devices that I have. Crying or Very sad

What ?
These good news were not that nano will be supported ?

It's a shame, these units were just perfect for us !!
We don't want to start building boxes with pico's inside and external antennas and LMR and expensive connectors...we run a community network based on volunteers... bad news then... Sad

Any Idea how long for the PicoStation to become available ?

I am working on an outdoor enclosure package for them.
Small, weather-tight with provisions for Cat5 and Antenna connections.

Would like to know how real the possibility of Ubiquity accommodating us with a Pico and How soon could we expect its availability?

I personal need a outdoor gateways to implement my networks.

My customers are all waiting on me for some encouraging news!

Thanks,

Fred

Thanks Antonio,

I will be one of the first to purchase. Now have 6 customers waiting for me to install mesh networks for them and another 5 discussing the possibilities.

I hope this works out for everyone.

The PicoStations don't need an outdoor enclosure.
