Went to nw4 to see if I could contact the new AP we installed yesterday, unw4ap.  This is the one where I assigned it, which is also used by une3ap.  I couldn't contact it, even over the management wifi, after temporarily disabling the management wifi of unw4.  I configured unw4 to always connect with tv2 78:8a:20:ec:8f:1a.

Went to nw3, and verified that its ubiquiti is not connecting with nnw4ap.  This could still be a problem with nnw4ap, but as a fallback I installed a cell modem at this site.

A modem with a Verizon sim would connect, the best I saw while hand rotating the directional antenna was 2-3 bars, 3G.  Omnidirectional 1 foot whip gave about 1 bar. A modem with an ATT sim reported 3 bars, 4GLTE, so I used ATT.  The directional antenna is pointing SW down the stream valley, at about 240 degrees.  It is mounted on the TRH boom. One would need a longer RG-8 cable to go higher, but the signal seems good enough.  Removed the bulkhead USB connector on the DSM and routed both the PWRMON USB and RG-8 cable through the hole. Needs plumbers putty or steel wool to keep critters out.





Was able to login while VPN'd to UCAR.

I hand edited /etc/network/interfaces:
