Re: [Debconf-team] [Debconf11-localteam] Network equipment

I'll see with Sarnet what can be done and do they have any equipment for this purpose. I'm not sure but I think they will provide a RJ45 socket and that is it.
We need to find all other equipment.

I wanted to say that devices which can support openwrt are not so easy to find here. As I know, the distributors are working mostly with Asus, Netgear, UBNT, D-Link and TP Link equipment. Flashing devices can be the problem (Warranty void if removed) so dealers won't be interested for borrowing.

Building the permanent wireless network inside is a good idea but as I know the venue should be renovated next year.

Also, the good idea would be to connect DIVA and dealers directly without any resellers between them (KIMTEC Vitez, PIN Computers Banja Luka, Genelec Tuzla, etc) so the the prices would be better (which means more money for food and beer :) ).

OpenWRT APs are rare here and I'll see what can be found.
Just in case you'd misunderstood -- they don't have to have OpenWRT on
them when we get them -- we normally end up flashing them at the start
of DebCamp, so they just need to be known to work with OpenWRT:


I note that Torouter are focusing on this at present:


which seems like a decent spec, but is perhaps more than we need -- on
the other hand, if they don't cost too much more than whatever else we
might buy, these will be worth keeping or will be tempting items to
sell, or to give out as prizes at the end of DebConf.

BTW would the government appreciate having the building wired for WiFi?
If so, we could try to make a more permanent job of it.

Cheers, Phil.
