WiresX Nodes/Radios Information / Anchorage Node
« Last post by KL4AN on August 08, 2016, 08:24:18 pm »
We have a WiresX node stood up in Anchorage.  It is in digital mode only, so a digital WiresX radio will be needed.
You can find active nodes and their room info by visiting
Sort at top by "state".  Find a node in your area.

You will find my node under Anchorage, Alaska.  My node ID is KL4AN-AK, room number is 18462.

I tend to hang out in the more popular rooms, MNWIS-Fusion and or ---America-Link.  Alabama-Link, I know is available via DMR, and I think MNWIS-Fusion room just added it also.

Weird - never had LEDs fail ever before.

I don't have spares but they are a standard surface mount size. Check the solder joints on them. The transistors that drive the leds are much more likely to fail than the led itself.

Did this board get introduced to lightning or anything that would explain the LEDS being out?

IRLP Arena / IRLP - Wireless Node Problem

(Raspberry Pi on Debian 7)
So the Node gets an IP, and it can authenticate with the router.  On boot up I see the following:  Configuring network interfaces...ioctl[SIOCSWAP]: operation not allowed.
After boot up, I see the IP (DHCP), however, if you try to ping it can't.   We then restart network services via "sudo services network restart"  and then it can ping and communicate.  It's almost like the network services are starting to soon, or drivers aren't initialized yet.

After a lot of research on how to configure network interfaces, suggestions to rip out ifplugd, and suggestions to run scripts to restart services after reboots (all good fixes, tries,etc.)  We found that simply replacing the USB wifi dongle with a different model / manufacturer was the solution.  What i think was happening was the drivers for the usb dongle were not initializing or incompatible.  We started to work on drivers, when it dawned on me that it may already have the drivers, lets put in a different usb wireless dongle......and BOOM, it worked.  No errors, reboot, still happy.    So watch out for that   ioctl[SIOCSWAP]   error.
