Waiting for DSL

by Volker Weber

netgear bridge

A wireless bridge to my neighbor, courtesy of Netgear, provides Internet connectivity while I am waiting for the DSL line.


At least you can expect something that calls itself DSL ;)

I would be happy if t-com would be able to provide me at least 1mbit. they force me to use that 384kbit lightdsl -- despite the fact that my router tells me that the dsl would do 2.7mbit just fine.

Does your neighbour know about this wireless bridge ;-)

I am also waiting for the fiberglas connection: 100 Mbit down 10Mbit up.

Chris, how do you set up a bridged network?

Stefan Rubner, 2007-10-08

Stefan, most access points allow a client mode that emulates a standard client and does a NAT behind that connection. this way one can e.g. share hotel wlan and save quite some cash :-)

So, your internet connection until today was what? ISDN? Modem? Drums? ;-)

I was waiting six weeks :-(

falls verfügbar wäre evtl. der SDSL von QDSL-Home(QSC) eine Alternative!? SDSL bringt oft höhere Werte (sofern man mit 2 MBit zufrieden ist). DSL Telekom Reseller (Freenet, 1und1 etc.) schalten auch oft höhere Bandbreiten als die Telekom.

Chris, my neighbor has the other end of the bridge. I gave it to him, so yes, he should know.

Das war aber Absicht, oder? Sich eine Straße auszusuchen, die Google Maps noch nicht kennt.....

@Ole: Du kannst Dir sicher sein, dass vowe bereits seine Drähte gen Google ausgerichtet hat und wir in wenigen Wochen jedes Steinchen seines Kiesbett-Vorgartens in Google Maps sehen können :-)
