Hi guys.

A mate told me about he WUG and how good it is.

I proceeded to purchase a 2,4g Grid antenna.
(UniGAIN 15dBi 2,4GHZ Split Grid Antenna)

Mounted it on my roof after checking if i had LOS on google earth.
the nearest active node is 180m from my location.

I then excitedly plugged the cat5 cable from the antenna into my router.
My lack of knowledge of the steps or processes of saetting up my JAWUG then hit me............damn


What do i do now?

how did you manage to plug CAT5 cable into a grid antenna ?

what kit do you have exactly ?

you need to have LOS to a active HIGHSITE that broadcasts in your direction.

well i didnt plug the cat5 directly into the antenna. my router board
is in an enclosed box right under my antenna.

Well i did make some progress last night.
I downloaed winbox

and changed all my settings according to ptawug's advice.

i then scanned the antenna's signal.

found jawug...however my signal strength is quite weak.
at -85. i need to just play around with the antenna till i find a stronger signal direction.

thats where my next question comes in....once i find get a good signal. and connect to it.....then what do i do?
