24Mb/5Mb currently via Comcast
- Comcast Cable (Only internet, no voice or tv service)
- $66.95 per month (After taxes COD at time of install is $169.21) - $3 modem rental per month
- No contract!
- Link speed is ~24Mbit down / ~5Mbit up. More testing during different times of the day would be useful.
- Wonderful quote from the service representative when asked about network filtering: "The network is filtered. Dynamic ips. Constantly flowing. Upgrading to static is possible through the business department."
- The direct line for the person who took the order is 1-925-349-3300 x644201
- Our confirmation number for this order is: 503691
- Speakeasy DSL (On a dry pair - Ordered for the (415) 864 area)
- Service has been delivered and installed at 83c
- Modem acts as a bridge straight into Speakeasy and comes with 1 static IP, 4 more for $20 per month.
- Currently 220.127.116.11
- Additional IP added on Jan 26th (requires configuration on firewall) 18.104.22.168
- $105.95 per month - ($99.00 install fee, first month free, hardware included - Paid by Jake)
- Link speed: 6Mb down and 768k up
- 12 month contract (25 day trial period), $300 fee if canceled in contract but outside of stated trial period.
- 1 static ip included
- The direct line for the person (Michelle) who took the order is 1-877-240-4821
- In the future, we can upgrade the DSL to the following:
- Kinda fast 8Mb down and 768k up. 149.95 per month. Hardware and install waved.
- Super fast 10Mb and 1Mb up. 179.95 per month. Hardware and install waved.
- Local wifi link (TBD - no current ETA on install)
We need an antenna and a wifi access point that will uplink to our core switch (we need one of those too)
- Metro fiber
- jof called IPN for a rough estimate for construction of fiber to 83c. The sales representative's estimate would be between 90,000USD - 100,000USD for the initial buildout.
- Sonic.net ADSL2
We're on the waiting list for 18Mb/1Mb ADSL2 Sometime in the next year service will be available in San Francisco.
Currently this hasn't been very seriously researched
We may have line of sight to a node if we can bounce off of a local building. This hasn't been seriously researched. We may want to try to get roof access for antennas and should talk to our very quiet neighbors.
I was contacted by Matt Peterson about connecting. I would be happy to do a site survey to see if you can hit the SFLAN or City wirless deployment from the Valencia Gardens development. That could get you 40Mb/s up and down. - Tim Pozar
- Currently Matt has configured a Soekris net4801 with flashdist OpenBSD 4.4 build, no fancy GUI exists - just simple vi and a pf.conf config file. The eventual plan is to ghetto load balance between the Comcast and Speakeasy circuits.
- Passwords to both devices are in an envelope in the closet in the fishbowl. Or if you are known within the group, ping jof
- I've done load balancing like this on Linux (and in fact on a Soekris net4801) if anyone's interested I could prep a CF card to do this.
- Jake has donated a FON La Fonera router that has been liberated with a fresh DD-WRT install.
- A Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex 2942 access point.
- Takes an 802.1q trunk (with POE!) over a single Cat5/6 cable, and can take up to 8 802.1q tags and broadcast an SSID for each tag. -- jof 00:51, 4 October 2008 (PDT)
- External IP is assigned via DHCP from Comcast on the Soekris box.
- Soekris is now updating a DynDNS domain for the WAN IP - comcast-sfo-noisebridge.dyndns.org -- jof 20:16, 3 October 2008 (PDT)
- cable.noisebridge.net should CNAME here as well.
- If modifying later, beware that Comcast will now only hand out a DHCP lease requested from 00:0A:E4:32:44:6E
- Internal subnet is 172.30.0.0/23
- Soekris box is at 172.30.0.1
- Linksys AP is at 172.30.0.2
- Cisco Router is at 172.30.0.3
- Ruckus AP (on 12th Ethernet port PoE) 172.30.0.5
- There are some existing Ethernet segments that you can patch into. If it has a number written in black marker on the outlet, this number corresponds to the outlet on the patch panel in the fishbowl closet.
Internal machines (with NAT addresses in 172.30.0.0/23) have names in the .noise pseudo-TLD. These names are managed on the Soekris in /etc/hosts (NOT in a zone file). After editing /etc/hosts, you can SIGHUP the dnsmasq process to trigger a reload.
The /etc/hosts file is persistent now (it wasn't back when we used pfSense) so it no longer needs to be maintained on the wiki; the copy on the soekris is canonical now.
The following networks are active at 83c now:
- noisebridge - insecure, NAT to Speakeasy via hardware described above.
- noisebridge-dsl - insecure, NAT to Comcast via standalone WRT54G. No access to Noisebridge wired network.
The following networks are disabled in the Ruckus AP config:
- nbsweden - insecure, NAT to Relakks. not yet functional. vlan 21.
- nbgermany - insecure, NAT to Germany via CCC. not yet functional. vlan 31.
- nbipv6 - insecure, IPv6 only. not yet functional. vlan 41.
- nbanonymous - insecure, transparent Tor. not yet functional. vlan 51.
- nbwpa - "secured" (so they say) using WPA. not yet functional. vlan 61.
- nblocal - insecure, local-only. No Internet route. not yet functional. vlan 71.
