BarTender:

 

Samknows is coming... and this is what it looks like.

 

 

I received the e-mail this morning, and binned it because it has a UK postal address, and no mention of the Comcom.

BarTender: I got the email too.

Will update the post with the slide deck. They do WiFi detection using the mac address of your default route on the lan and adding or removing 1 from the Mac address of the SSID. Which for those running their own WiFi APs won't work but the majority of people use the supplied router and built in WiFi. I did suggest saying that you should be able to enter your SSID in their portal. As that is another easy way to figure it out.

 

I have an unusual set up at home:

 

ONT --> EdgeRouter

 

Then from the EdgeRouter X it feeds three devices over Ethernet:

 

EdgeRouter --> Unifi AP
EdgeRouter --> NanoBeam ~~> NanoBeam --> Unifi AP
EdgeRouter --> Computer

 

I suppose probably not compatible with their test gear—unless they take up @BarTender's suggestion re SSID detection. If they can detect using the SSID I could leave the APs linked directly to the EdgeRouter (for PoE purposes) and just have the computer connected to the Whitebox?

 

Maybe not worthwhile for me to participate for the time being.

No love for me with my VDSL connection. I'm interested to hear what others experiences are.

Your setup would be easy to support in this scenario as per the update to my second post showing suggested diagrams from the slide deck specifically this one.

 

 

All you would do is plug the WAN side of the probe into the ER-X, then plug all your devices including the Nanobeam into the LAN ports on the Samknows Whitebox.

 

Then there would be no requirements for special wireless detection since everything would be transiting over the LAN side of the whitebox into the ER-X.
