6 months later, but perhaps worth the wait? Antonio, if you knew about these units all along and have been expected to not discuss them, then good job! I'm not sure i could have been so quiet for so long.

Is there anything you can now share about ubiquiti's new products and ROBIN?

It's really difficult to have good relations and feedbacks with ubnt guys, I'm sorry.
I think they are not so skilled on Wireless Mesh Network and thus they are a bit confused about some topics such as dashboard, nodes role, ...

I'm very interested in a Ubiquity Bullet2 build of Open-Mesh. Add an omni and it is a very potent and cheap outdoor install option.

Ubiquity guys -- if you can work with Antonio to make this happen you're gonna sell huge gobs of hardware.

Dang! If we can get open-mesh/robin working on the Bullet, we are *so* there!

We've been looking for a solid network access device with low cost, high TX power, and mesh repeater functions for a couple of years now.

not sure why it wount funtion on NS2 at 4MB, as Ive got a full mesh now with a modified image, basically ripped out all the uneeded binaries such as nodog, wifidog, sputnik, and setup my own dashboard... modified some scripts, appears to run fine for me 30+ nodes up and running on NS2s now reporting to the dashboard here fine... not even using open-mesh, and yes coova-chilli is onboard talking to our radius and authenticating users, might be able to break out what you dont need, and make install packages based on what the dashboard config is... I mean i dont need extra binaries if im not using them.. scenerio

new node boots, checks in, see coova as configured, ipkg installs coova, configures it reboots... done...

sees nodogosplash ipkg installs nodogsplash, configures it reboots... you get the picture, I often wondered why the image got bloated and now i see... it give 4 different portal capabilites onboard, but grows so much it now limits the types of hardware you can use... so i basically hacked out what wasnt needed, including the requirements for an external dashboard......

matter of fact my images are only so id belive theyll run on bullets pretty fine

WHT,

I am impatiently waiting for the same thing...

I've been thinking one could actually put together a real robust mesh with a 2 bullet5's and 1 bullet2 at each node... You could compete with the ~ $5000/node solutions for ~ $150/node

Did you get any of the new picostation's?

I agree, we are using this concept in an installation scheduled in about 10 days. This won't be mesh but will be WDS based to start.

I'll try to get a few Picostations for beta testing, they should be at dealers within a month or two after that.

Apparently there was a new version uploaded a few days ago. Don't have anything to test it with yet.

I think that the the "secret" is a well-sized and customized rootfs.tgz

We can start from the de-crompressed original full root file system and go ahead removing what isn't needed, according to the expected target configuration. For example, if we'll use BATMAN then we'll have to remove OLSR related stuff, if our final configuration doesn't have the second AP then we can remove hostap daemon, and so on...The same for dnsmasq 'cos we use udhcpd.

At the end of the clean-up we'll have to compress again the root file system into a fresh ubnt-rootfs.tar.gz tarball and use mtd-upgrade to flash the devices (changing robin-23_rootfs.tar.gz with ubnt-rootfs.tar.gz).

This could be a good solution. Thoughts?

Souds like you guys are really making some progress here. Does anyone know when the Picostation is coming out & will it be able to use the files on blogin.it since it has 32mb and 8mb flash?

I am under the impression that the Picostation will adapt to the plain vanilla firmware. This will be the unit. 100mw and 59$, or the PicoHP at 1watt. Weatherproof and PoE.
They were announced for December, they are now for January.
Just waiting....

As far as the NS2 is concerned, you will need to take the latest version of ROBIN, and "trim" some fat to reduce the size of the firmware. BATMAN & Chilli on repeaters was an issue until some of the recent changes in ROBIN. This might resolve your repeater issue if you take the latest rev and remove things you don' need. (OLSR, DHCP, ect.)

I asked Antonio in the past to support these devices (NS2, NS5), or to release a firmware version that didn't include both routing daemons, but there doesn't seem to be an interest there todo so. It looks like Antonio & Mike wish to support 32MB devices.

Back in revision 646, NS2 ran great with ROBIN. (back when BATMAN was the only routing daemon. When OLSR was added the firmware grew too large....

There has been a group of people working on a 16MB ver of ROBIN. I am sure there will be more about this later.

Hope this helps,

I think that there was another firmware wich used wifidog. I read about it while searching for a mesh firmware for the nanostation.
I think it's called nightwing or something like that. Never got a chance to test it, since I didn't buy the nanostation, yet Smile
