WiND Node (link or at least name and number): Caelus #18338
List your existing wireless equipment (but don’t buy anything): MikroTik LHG 5 (Test kit I am borrowing from @sharkie)
Confirm with yes or no that you’ve read the getting started guide: yes
I am trying to find potential nodes to connect to. Here are my preliminary scan results:
North North East:
The red sector in the above image shows the area I tried to scan in, refer to the wind link for context on the map. I can’t scan any further north or south of the red sector as I am blocked by buildings. The blue sector is what I could scan from the back of my building, but I didn’t find any CTWUG SSIDs.
I didn’t try pointing the scanner at any particular node, but rather just the cardinal directions. Was this the right approach? I think I should be able to see any sectors in range like like this?
Once I have found a potential candidate how do I track down their wind id? For example that ctwug.za.net/Ryan-Sector, I can’t find a “Ryan-Sector” when searching on wind, but there are a lot of “Ryan” nodes. Should I click on each of them to try and find the best candidate for “Ryan-Sector” or is there an easier way?
The scan results don’t look particularly good, but I may be wrong.
