Here is my broadband hamnet node project. The enclosure was from an old electric water heater controller. The node is a Linksys WRT54GS removed from it’s enclosure. I am feeding it with Cat5 and power over ethernet. It is has both a high gain omni antenna and a directional antenna and will be put up about 20 feet. Ultimately I will try to get it linked up with a MESH network which is about 10 miles away.
