[00:19] <willdude123> rockblock looks interesting.
[00:20] <willdude123> Have there been any successful UKHAS projects that aren't balloons?
[00:20] <mfa298> willdude123: you might have to be a bit more careful then. If you've got access to some suitable wire it shouldn't be too hard for you to make some replacements
[00:21] <mfa298> willdude123: what are you thinking of as UKHAS projects that aren't balloons ?
[00:21] <arko> willdude123: http://track.poseidon.sgsphysics.co.uk/
[00:21] <arko> these guys hang out here
[00:21] <arko> launching tomorrow i believe
[00:24] stucky (~u291187@77-20-229-174-dynip.superkabel.de) joined #highaltitude.
[00:25] <willdude123> Gliderd maybe.
[00:26] G8KNN-Jon (~Jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[00:26] <willdude123> arko, what is that?
[00:26] <mfa298> I think there was a bit of talk about gliders although legality for being really high possibly got interesting.
[00:26] <arko> it's a floating beacon they are dropping in the ocean
[00:26] <arko> the ocean currents will move it around as they study where it goes and monitor it's IMU and other sensor data
[00:26] <arko> very neat project
[00:27] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:27] <Lunar_Lander> damn
[00:27] <Lunar_Lander> shouldn't have talked about the idea too much
[00:28] <arko> ?
[00:28] <Lunar_Lander> ah I proposed the same thing shortly after my flight here
[00:28] <arko> why not talk about it?
[00:29] <arko> it's not a new thing :P
[00:30] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[00:31] <arko> i found out jpl makes a bunch of these beacons
[00:31] <arko> it's such a small project here that it's not very publicized
[00:32] <arko> they really should do mini documentaries about projects
[00:32] <arko> ...if only they let me be in charge of media outreach hehe
[00:32] <willdude123> I want something cool to do with my arduino.
[00:32] <arko> willdude123: floppy disk orchestra
[00:33] <arko> self-balance bots are fun too
[00:34] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:34] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[00:36] <mfa298> if you want things related to HAB you could experiment with other methods of transmitting data (instead of rtty)
[00:37] Lunar_Lander (~gd-compto@p5488BFC4.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Quit: Verlassend
[00:41] <willdude123> Maybe.
[00:41] <willdude123> How do other methods work?
[00:43] <mfa298> there's various forms of MFSK (using more than 2 tones),
[00:44] <willdude123> Could be interesting.
[00:44] <mfa298> if you wanted something different you could always try interfacing the arduino to other things (lego could good for that if you still get motors and other bits of electrical stuff)
[00:45] <mfa298> you might even be able to get an arduino playing some sounds into a speaker
[00:48] <willdude123> I wonder how long the longest rc plane flight was.
[00:50] <willdude123> Can you fly RC planes very high?
[00:50] <mfa298> I think there are some legal limitations about how far that can go
[00:51] <mfa298> (I think the operator has to be in visual contact with it i.e. be able to see it)
[00:52] <willdude123> Are all floaters under foil balloons?
[00:52] <willdude123> Do all foil balloons float?
[00:52] <mfa298> technically weight is likely to be the limiting factor (more height probably needs more power which needs more batteries, which adds more weight making it harder to get it higher)
[00:52] <mfa298> todays attempted floater was a latex balloon
[00:54] <mfa298> you can have floaters with foil and latex, similarly both types can also do the up, burst, down flights
[00:54] <mfa298> foils tend to be limited to around 5km (as they can't stretch) and lighter payloads (they can't be filled as much)
[00:55] <willdude123> Does sending serial to an ntx2 make rtty?
[00:56] <mfa298> I think it can (that's effectivly what's done on the pi) but there are limitations in doing it that way
[00:57] <Darkside> you need to do some lvel shifting to get the right output frequency shift
[00:57] <Darkside> and you're limited to 300 baud
[00:57] <willdude123> When is PIE5 launching?

[00:59] <mfa298> if you want to look up the technical side of RTTY it's a form of FSK (Frequency Shift Keying). You just need a way of having two frequencies transmitted which with the NTX2 you can do with two different voltages
[00:59] <mfa298> which is what you're doing by toggling the pin and the resistor network
[01:00] <mfa298> on the PI people are using the serial port as OS gets in the way of timing for toggling a GPIO pin like you're doing on the arduino
[01:02] <mfa298> as for PIE5 I think that's dependant on weather and getting suitable people together, there's likely to be an announcment on the mailing list a few days before it happens

[09:08] <G4GUO> Not so bad, I'm about to start testing DATV-Express with a Raspberry PI. Just finished the FPGA code.
[09:08] <G4GUO> I see you and I were the last to hear AKA yesterday.
[09:09] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah that could be interesting, could well be suprised given the setup at present just my 25 year old WX1 direct to an E4000 dongle!
[09:10] <Geoff-G8DHE> Must sort out a vertical for 868MHz and maybe a beam for when I get the aerials down to sort out the rotater!
[09:10] <fsphil> the the Pi has enough processing power to do DVB?
[09:10] <G4GUO> I was using a W30 and an FT817, I lost it at an altitude of 2300m.
[09:11] <Darkside> fsphil: if its just the mpeg2 decoding then it probably can
[09:11] cuddykid (~acudworth@host-92-28-61-193.as13285.net) joined #highaltitude.
[09:11] <Darkside> well, with the mpeg2 key
[09:11] <fsphil> generating DVB even
[09:11] <fsphil> the DATV-Express is a transmitter
[09:11] <G4GUO> Hi Phil, the PI will only manipulate the Transport stream. The FPGA will do the DVB-S encoding.
[09:12] <fsphil> ah
[09:13] <G4GUO> Phil has manage to drive a Digilite using an MK808, the RS encoding consumes most of the processing.
[09:13] <G4GUO> Sorry I meant Rob M0DTS
[09:13] <fsphil> Would I be right in thinking DVB-T would be too complex?
[09:13] <Geoff-G8DHE> Right well if XABEN is flying this afternoon I have a few jobs to do first, bbl
[09:14] <G4GUO> For a PI yes. However I have implemented DVB-T on a PC based Ubuntu system.
[09:14] <fsphil> transmitter?
[09:15] <G4GUO> it is the 2K and 8K FFTs that are the problem there. The rest uses the same FEC as DVB-S i.e RS and a K=7 convolutional code.
[09:16] <G4GUO> Yes transmitter. The FFT is written using MMX instructions to speed it up.
[09:16] <fsphil> ah fantastic
[09:16] <fsphil> using the same datv-express board?
[09:17] <G4GUO> Yes. I have some FPGA code for Express that acts as a glorified sound card. You just pump the baseband I&Q to it and it modulates the RF anywhere you like between 72.5 MHz and 2.48 GHz.
[09:18] <Darkside> G4GUO: so you're making a small DVB-S transmitter?
[09:18] <Darkside> how hard are the linearity requirements for DVB-S vs DVB-T
[09:19] <G4GUO> You could say that. DVB-S is much easier than DVB-T. The PAR is lower.
[09:19] <Darkside> hrm
[09:19] <G4GUO> Peak to Average Ratio (PAR)
[09:20] <Darkside> it's be fun to tly a DVB-S video transmitter
[09:20] <Darkside> but i'm betting the power requirements will be pretty
[09:20] <Darkside> scary
[09:20] <Darkside> and the heat dissipation
[09:20] <Darkside> yes, PAPR
[09:21] <G4GUO> With a Mitsubishi 18 watt brick you can get about 10 watts out on DVB-S but only about 2 watts on DVB-T before it starts to badly distort.
[09:21] <Darkside> ooh
[09:21] <Darkside> now thats interesting
[09:21] <G4GUO> I think those bricks are about 20% efficient.
[09:21] <Darkside> well that tels me a lot
[09:21] <Darkside> yeah
[09:22] <Darkside> heatsinking will be a bitch
[09:22] <Darkside> i think we'll just go with standard analog ATV
[09:22] <Darkside> at least we'll get *some* kind of picture with low signal
[09:22] <Darkside> versus no picture
[09:23] <G4GUO> yes I think you are right. There is someone in Texas that plans to fly digital TV but I think don't think he has worked out the power budjet yet.

[09:24] <fsphil> that hardware works on 2.4ghz, but the ground antenna would need to be pretty big
[09:24] <costyn> cool that AVA was recovered :)
[09:25] <G4GUO> The advantafe of Digital is that there are sequence numbers in the signal and timestamps so you could have multiple receivers picking the signal up and forwarding it to central server that could use the information to re-build a good picture from all the broken ones.
[09:25] <jcoxon> G4GUO, a bit like SSDV
[09:25] <jcoxon> :-)
[09:25] <fsphil> only it doesn't lie about the V bit :)
[09:25] <Darkside> i think we'll just fly analog
[09:25] <Darkside> we have the hardware for that already
[09:26] <fsphil> I worked out a while back you'd need 1mbit/s to do basic video with SSDV
[09:26] <fsphil> 320x240
[09:26] <G4GUO> Yes, just Googled SSDV. I don't really see a reason for realtime video unless you have it in the nose of munitions or drones.
[09:27] <fsphil> there is the cool factor
[09:27] <G4GUO> I am hoping to use the PI camera and MPEG 4 in the future.
[09:28] <fsphil> that and having the fpga doing the dvb-t encoding would be cool
[09:28] <fsphil> instant HD channel
[09:29] <SpeedEvil> well, you can do multiple receivers with analog
[09:29] <G4GUO> The FPGA would not be big enough sadly. We designed the thing down to a price rather than up to a spec.
[09:29] <fsphil> ah
[09:30] <SpeedEvil> I was earlier wondering if you can correlate drifts between multiple receivers at 70cm, if they are fairly widely seperated, by receiving the correlated background noise
[09:31] <G4GUO> You will just have to content yourself with receiving DVB-S from the ISS later in the year.
[09:31] <fsphil> G4GUO: oooh I've not heard about this
[09:32] <fsphil> SpeedEvil: would there be correlated background noise?
[09:32] <G4GUO> Yes they are installing a DVB-S setup in the ISS soon. It will be transmitting around 2.42 GHz (probably get wiped out by WiFi sadly).
[09:32] <G0DJA> Is todays flight XABEN46 setting in FLDigi
[09:32] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: I mean background noise that can be picked up at multiple sites
[09:32] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: and yes, that's a queastuion
[09:33] <fsphil> SpeedEvil: yea, not as easy on 70cm
[09:33] <SpeedEvil> easy if you have an Ariel 'clock'

[10:33] <costyn> well not much you can do with that much balloon remnants I think? they're going to be heavy in any case
[10:33] <Upu> well it was a 36" parachute so shouldn't have an issue with it but looks like it tangled
[10:33] <Upu> right afk for a bit
[10:34] <chrisstubbs> oo ava got it recovered in the end then?
[10:34] <costyn> i mean heavy that they're likely to overtake the parachute and payload in any case

[12:52] <Upu> I don't think there is any calculation Alain, basically sometimes with a slow ascent rate (<3m/s) 1600g Hwoyee balloons will enter a float

[13:46] <futurity> uXABEN is slowly drifting upwards
[13:46] <Geoff-G8DHE> uXABEN is rising in freq for me XABEN is staeady
[13:46] <Upu> hi martijn__
[13:46] <Upu> yeah concur with that

[13:47] <Upu> yup

[13:47] <martijn__> oke cool
[13:47] <martijn__> I'm hoping I can catch it's signal today to
[13:47] <Morseman> Gave up on uXABEN - too many bad decodes - back on XABEN1 again now
[13:48] <Hix> although having said that the carrier inbetween sentences warbles a bit
[13:48] <Hix> kind of like a pulsing carrier
[13:49] <Morseman> Hix XABEN1 gives a sort of tick tick on the 'steady' carrier
[13:49] <Hix> signal must be pretty good as i had it ab <2000m on a rubber duck
[13:49] <Hix> ah oki Morseman
[13:49] <futurity> should the carrier shift place the red lines directly over the yellow lines?
[13:50] <Hix> yes
[13:50] <Morseman> futurity ideally
[13:50] <futurity> 600 seems to be well away from the yellow lines

[13:50] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[13:50] <daveake> Try 670
[13:50] <Hix> Right click on RTTY bottom left to make it custom
[13:50] <futurity> i guess i cn just enter a new custom shift?
[13:50] <Lunar_Lander> congratulations to the Kraken team
[13:50] <Morseman> you can adjust in 'Modems' by selecting "Custom" under the shift and adjusting shift spacing
[13:50] <Lunar_Lander> but why aren't there new data infos?
[13:51] <Morseman> I've set mine to something like 650Hz
[13:51] <Hix> Lunar_Lander: think craag has a working tracker
[13:51] <Upu> shift is 670 here

[13:53] <mattbrejza> (GMT)
[13:53] <Upu> is that actually floating now ?
[13:53] <mattbrejza> yep
[13:53] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[13:53] <Upu> oh wow
[13:53] <mattbrejza> Next Transmission

[13:53] <Upu> rockblock ?

[13:54] <mattbrejza> so we shall see
[13:54] <Upu> lol
[13:54] <Upu> any pictures of it ?
[13:54] <Hix> Was Steve aiming for a ditch flight? Or has he got a cutdown
[13:55] <daveake> dunno
[13:55] <mattbrejza> https://twitter.com/sgsphysics
[13:55] <mattbrejza> are some pics
[13:55] <Hix> thought the prediction was a bit offshore earlier
[13:55] <daveake> I'm curious
[13:55] <Upu> the prediction is based on me having no idea at all what balloon is on there
[13:55] <Upu> Steve could be up to anything
[13:55] <Upu> £1 says they separate
[13:56] <Hix> I did one for 6ms and 30000m
[13:56] <Hix> and it still went offshore
[13:56] <Upu> This is Steve its not going in the sea unless he wants it too
[13:56] <Hix> s'what i thought
[13:57] <GMT> odd design of payload, given it's destination, would a boat shape be better?
[13:57] <Hix> maybe he's off to meet KRAKEN
[13:57] <Upu> whats the difference between craag's page and the Track the kraken one ?
[13:57] <Hix> how many HAB points for landing on KRAKEN ;p
[13:57] <Geoff-G8DHE> and now a rapid drift low on uXABEN
[13:57] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[13:57] <fsphil> faster updates Upu
[13:57] <mattbrejza> they both get data from habitat i tihnk
[13:58] <Upu> ok

[13:59] <M0UPU> well you can transmit every 2 mins

[13:59] <Hix> despite Rock7 sponsorship
[13:59] <M0UPU> put Kraken on Spacenear :)
[13:59] <Lunar_Lander> stupid question
[13:59] <mattbrejza> power issues too
[14:00] <Randomskk> M0UPU: it would be by default
[14:00] <Lunar_Lander> why do 70 batteries give 7 V?
[14:00] <Randomskk> we set it to not go on spacenear
[14:00] <Randomskk> Lunar_Lander: they are not all in series, that'd be insane

[14:10] <daveake> It was a Vittel bottle; we thought we'd send it home

[14:54] <Hiena> If you want to fill the balloon with hydrogen from electrolysis, you will need much bigger setup, and thicker cable.
[14:54] <chrisstubbs> just an experiment atm
[14:54] <fsphil> typical, bursts just as I turn my radio on
[14:55] <Hiena> If i remember correctly 1 mol hydrogen requires 47kW which is 22litre at the atmosphreic pressure.
[14:55] <chrisstubbs> interesting figures
[14:55] <chrisstubbs> thats a fair bit of energy
[14:56] <junderwood_M0JCU> kW is power - not energy
[14:57] <Lunar_Lander> yea 1 mol of gas is 22.4 L

[15:51] <_ed> hi all, ive been doing a couple of tests with a parachute i have and a 1kg weight, although the parachute slows thing down well i was wondering if anyone has used two parachutes, or is it a no go due the possibilities of tangling?
[15:52] <Randomskk> avoid two chutes
[15:52] <Randomskk> use one bigger one if you need to
[15:53] <_ed> yeh thats what i was thinking i just thought id ask. do people avoid two due to tangling risk?
[15:54] <Randomskk> yes
[15:54] <_ed> brilliant thanks for that randomskk
[15:55] <Randomskk> no

[19:51] <Morseman> Thanks Randomskk that looks very interesting...
[19:53] <Morseman> TalkTalk are about £15/month but would happily pay another £10 per month for no drop outs and no throttling at weekends and evenings
[19:54] <Morseman> Then I'd get Kate off my back when she's trying to play farmville and it's dropping out every 30 minutes as well...
[19:54] <mfa298> I've always used eclipse for ADSL and they've been reasonable (but also expensive)
[19:55] <mfa298> I've heard various people recommend aaisp in the past.
[19:56] <Morseman> Expensive is a relative term - Cheap but only gives slow speed and lots of drop outs is not cost effective...
[19:56] <mfa298> although if you're having dropouts that could also be down to the telephone line
[19:57] <Randomskk> we have eclipse at home and they are good, really good customer support etc
[19:57] <mfa298> I think when I've tested I've had most of the 8Mbps the exchange supports.
[19:57] <Randomskk> and the net's been fine
[19:57] <Morseman> I can get a cheap car but if it keeps breaking down and I can't get to work, so I get docked pay, it's a bad idea
[19:57] <Randomskk> (now on eclipse fibre. fibre to the cabinet is amazing if you can get it)
[19:57] <jonsowman> Morseman: are you on adsl?
[19:57] <Morseman> Yes
[19:57] <jonsowman> do you know how far away your exchange is?
[19:57] <Morseman> 2 lines - 1 work the other private

[19:57] <Morseman> the work one (seperate line) is OK but Company pay for that
[19:57] <jonsowman> http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange_mapping
[19:58] <jonsowman> there's some chance you have an aluminium line
[19:58] <jonsowman> which are rubbish
[19:58] <Morseman> It's always faster than TT and more reliable (after the telephone Co sorted their cock-ups out)
[19:58] <Upu_> Zen Internet is also very good but expensive
[19:59] <Upu_> yeah Aluminum lines suck badly for FTTC
[19:59] Nick change: Upu_ -> UPu
[19:59] Nick change: UPu -> Upu
[19:59] <Morseman> Both are the same final connection to the same local exchange (same bundled cable from here to the local box)
[19:59] <jonsowman> we're on BT Infinity FTTC, it's been excellent. rock solid and 80MBps down, 20MBps up, and 10-12ms pigns to london
[19:59] <Upu> I quite like Entanet
[20:00] <Upu> I'm a reseller of
[20:00] <Morseman> Have a slight (for some value above 100) aversion to anything BT
[20:00] <jonsowman> Morseman: the D-side (cab to house) is what matters for FTTC
[20:00] <jonsowman> whereas with ADSL the E-side matters too
[20:00] <Upu> however
[20:00] <Upu> if you can get FTTC

[20:00] <Upu> shortly you will be able to get FTTP on deman
[20:00] <Upu> demand
[20:00] <Morseman> I'm waiting to see when we get fibre here
[20:01] <Upu> which will have a ludicrous install charge but then revert to more realistic monthly
[20:01] <Upu> was Xaben recovered ?
[20:01] <fsphil> when I'm rich I'll totally have FTTP
[20:02] <Morseman> It's like buying solar panels - Free just means the installer makes the money over time - If you pay up front you get the longer term benefits - Same with energy efficiency stuff
[20:02] <mfa298> when ever our FTTC date gets close it gets changed maybe I'll get >8MB sometime by 2020
[20:09] <Morseman> AAISP says later this year here, but then again...

[20:44] <Upu> Got it back Steve ?
[20:45] <Morseman> The big problem is lack of any customer service - I know the line is OK (the company ISP use a parallel line through same cable to same box and same exchange and there's not as many drop outs or throttling) and my modem is Ok
[20:46] <Morseman> But at least twice a night Kate shouts that the internet is down, and I have to scurry round to reset the ADSL connection

[20:47] <Upu> technically cheating but I'll let you have it
[20:47] <Morseman> Sometimes this PC defaults back to the company connection (I try not to use it for private use) and I don't realise until Kate moans or I go upstairs and the internet is down.

[20:52] <Morseman> I just ran the www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk on Kates PC (hardwired to the ADSL router - not WiFi) and Download speed = 8.67mB/s upload = 0.820mB/s
[20:53] <mfa298> That's over wifi but it's not going to make any difference.
[20:53] <fsphil> that's pretty good for adsl
[20:53] <mfa298> Morseman: that's better than I get :(
[20:54] <Morseman> Yes but that's at 09:50 at night...
[20:54] <Morseman> If the USA are awake or it's a weekend or bank holiday...
[20:54] <mfa298> but this exchange is pretty poor, no FTTC, and there's now a massive 2 LLU providers and I think we've only just got into 21CN
[20:55] <Morseman> Then there's the regular break in service - You know when it says Morseman and/or G0DJA have left the building, that's usually because TalkTalk bombed out
[20:56] <Morseman> mfa298 without wanting to patronise, it's levels that we used to get in the 1990s over here - Things were supposed to get better!
[20:58] <fsphil> I think I was still on dialup then
[20:58] <mfa298> I think most of the UK was still on dialup in the 90's
[20:58] <fsphil> yea, I got ADSL in 2003
[20:59] <fsphil> a huge 256kbit/s
[20:59] <fsphil> 128kbit up
[20:59] <fsphil> I remember being really impressed :)

[21:09] <mfa298> I stopped using the providers router when the one I had died, got replaced and then the replacement died.
[21:10] <Morseman> It's usually that the line stops responding, from what I can make out

[21:10] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Evening all
[21:11] <Morseman> Like I say mfa298 I could be wrong, but I've tried to eliminate the usual problems...
[21:12] <Morseman> The problem then is that the TalkTalk drones, on a script, blame the router if it's not one of theirs...

[21:15] <Upu> they have this habit of defaulting their settings for no reason at all
[21:15] <Upu> Netgear are ok
[21:15] <Upu> Zyxel naff interfaces but work
[21:15] <mfa298> Draytek used to have a good name although I've not heard much from them recently
[21:15] <Upu> Yeah alot of people rate they highly and I think the hardware is good
[21:16] <Upu> but the interface is wtf
[21:16] <Morseman> I used to have a Netgear but it died on me
[21:16] <fsphil> I've had so many netgear PSUs fail
[21:16] <mfa298> probably a nicer interface than IOS (Cisco) for people that have never seen it before.
[21:16] <Morseman> The internet access system was a PiTA as well
[21:17] <Morseman> The company modem is a Draytek - no problems
[21:18] <Morseman> If I have an internet problem on the Draytek it's someone elses problem anyway :-)
[21:18] <Geoff-G8DHE_> RocketBoy Steve did you get that large mail the other night ?
[21:19] <Morseman> OK so what modem to get instead of the Cisco?
[21:20] <mfa298> if you're feeling rich and want to spend time learning the IOS commands buy a real Cisco (Not Linksys)
[21:20] <fsphil> I loved the DG834, mostly cause it looked really nice

[21:31] <fsphil> try changing the psu on the netgear
[21:31] <mfa298> once you've got the wifi network configured it shouldn't be bard to configure the rest via a browser over wireless or physical cable.
[21:31] <Morseman> Maybe the answer is to run CAT5 cables to every room and do away with WiFi :)
[21:32] <fsphil> I've cat5 running out to the shed :)
[21:32] <Morseman> fsphil too late - I bined the Netgear when it stopped working over 12 months ago
[21:33] <Randomskk> cat5 is definitely the way to go
[21:33] <Randomskk> wifi is fine for like, my tablet or perhaps my laptop in bed
[21:33] <fsphil> or cat6, but it's annoying to crimp
[21:33] <Morseman> I need CAT5 for the magnetometer - but that's another story
[21:33] <mfa298> You could always look at getting a seperate Wireless AP (most stuff is physically wired but a lot of those don't have a wifi option - or it's expensive)
[21:33] <fsphil> long runs of cat5 do produce a fair bit of noise on 144mhz
[21:33] <Morseman> fsphil I'm thinking precriped anyway
[21:34] <Morseman> precrimped
[21:34] <Morseman> fsphil I don't do much (if any) 144MHz these days anyway
[21:34] <fsphil> nor me :)
[21:35] <mfa298> crimp tool and rj45 plugs were a very worthwhile investment, I've had so many clips on the rj45 plugs break off.

[21:42] <mfa298> ooh, reading the first paragraphs in there, one thing that could be worth looking for is a router that can take openwrt or dd-wrt then if you don't like the interface that could be an option (not that I've ever used any of those custom firmwares to comment on them)
[21:43] <mfa298> the cable tie labels also work on rg58, rg213, urm70, westflex103 and probably others.
[21:43] <Randomskk> openwrt was great fun, I used to run that
[21:43] <cuddykid> ping arko
[21:44] <mfa298> I keep thinking of trying the various -wrt options and then find that none of the devices I've bought support anything like that
[21:44] <Randomskk> eroomde: oh my goodness
[21:44] <Randomskk> that is truly appalling
[21:45] <Morseman> "openwrt" Ah, Linux. I tried that a couple of times. My intake of paracetamol went up exponencially
[21:52] <Morseman> OK - So tomorrow I look for a Netgear ADSL/WiFi box again and then maybe move to another ISP as well. Or, maybe I let the new ISP send me their ADSL/WiFi box and I reconfigure the house connections (PCs, laptops, Wii, mobile phones etc) again. Deep Joy.
[21:52] <fsphil> you shouldn't have any of that to do
[21:52] <Morseman> Why?
[21:52] <fsphil> dhcp
[21:52] <Morseman> pardon
[21:52] <fsphil> unless you've given everything a static IP, all your devices will just work
[21:53] <Morseman> They've all got standard non-static address (I think)
[21:53] <mfa298> the only thing you might have to reconfigure is the wireless network to talk to. But it should be as possible to change the wireless network name and secret on the router
[21:53] <fsphil> yea, setup the wireless to whatever it currently is
[21:54] <mfa298> The wireless network name doesn't have to be the default on the box (although it seems everyone in range of me thinkgs it does)
[21:54] <Elwell> last 3 telcos we've just used the same passwrd that the 1st one set - change once on router vs all devices
[21:54] <Morseman> OK (he said, not expecting it to be that easy because it never has been in the past...)
[21:55] <Morseman> OK bed time. Night all thanks for the advice
[21:56] <mfa298> If you know the network name and the wireless password that your devices are connecting to then it should just be a case of setting that on the router and everything will just connect
[21:56] <Elwell> you probably need to re-apply static dhcp lease to printers etc
[21:57] <fsphil> printers, always spoiling it
[21:57] <mfa298> for home networks I'm not sure that matters, I think the drivers just broadcast to find the printer
[22:02] <Morseman> No printers
