After our neighborhood wireless internet project was covered in a local newspaper we immediately began receiving emails and inquiries from Myrtletown residents who want to get a stronger signal in their homes.

The wireless internet protocol (aka 802.11) operates in the 2.4GHz band. This is the same radio frequency that many cordless phone systems, microwaves, and wireless networks use. The signal is not always powerful enough to pass through thick walls, trees, and other obstructions. As a result, our neighborhood wifi signal can run into trouble once it goes through a couple of walls and past a block or so of cordless phones.

If you're a little too far away from the Myrtletown access point, but you think you have decent line-of-sight from your roof to our office, then you might consider extending your wi-fi range using inexpensive consumer wifi gear and a directional antenna (like a "cantenna") to bring the signal into your home.

We at Myrtletown.net are very excited that the wireless project has been well-received by the community, and we are even more excited that neighborhood residents want to contribute to the network and help expand the service.

Because Myrtletown.net is a side project and the wi-fi network is, well, somewhat technically complex, expanding it significantly from this point is going to take lots of help from the community.

We would like this forum thread to become a place for all volunteers, enthusiasts, and interested parties to share their ideas, suggestions, and any other information or plans that could help Myrtletown grow a useful, widespread community wi-fi network that genuinely adds value to our neighborhood.

HI gANG:

I live on Myrtle Avenue.

I accidentally picked up your signal last spring.

You mean, you are allowing this on purpose?

As for the poor puppy who died on Fourth of July, several groups are offering huge rewards for information.


Thanks.


Sincerely,



Ruth
