incomplete gear

  • More than 100x Meraki sparky (also known as Meraki outdoor)
    • No cases, power supplies or antennas (u.fl connector)
    • Needs special script for hardware watchdog.
    • Flashing takes ~20 mins

PoE adapters

  •  ?



  • Maybe 1/4 roll of a 100 foot outdoor UV-protected shielded and grounded CAT6
  • A bunch of indoor CAT5 and CAT5E
  • Bunch of RJ45 connectors
  • Bunch of grounded RJ45 connectors

Antennas and pigtails

We have a bunch of high-gain omnis, a bunch of dish (the grid type) antennas, and a few panel antennas. Most of these are N connectors. We need to go through them, check frequency and tag them with frequency.

We have a bunch of u.fl to male N pigtails.

We have a bunch of GPS antennas.

Tools for node-mounting

Big tools

  • One foldable woodworking table (like this)

Hand tools

  • One decent RJ45 crimper (blue handle) with somewhat worn out cutting blades
  • 2x low quality RJ45 crimpers (green handle). Probably OK for crimping but not for cutting or stripping.
  • A set of screwdrivers, wire cutter, tongs, and other basic hand tools.

Power tools

  • Makita impact driver (battery powered)
  • Makita drill (battery powered)
  • Makita battery charger
  • 3x Makita batteries


  • Two ethernet cable testers (need batteries)

Consumables for node-mounting

TODO put stuff like mounting brackets, plumbers tape, screws, silicone, hose clamps, cable staples.

Other stuff

  • 3x One Laptop Per Child XO Laptop (one power supply)
  • Lots of other stuff that needs.

Less than useful stuff

  • A bunch of random indoor routers that don't support OpenWRT
  • A bunch of random indoor routers that do support modern OpenWRT but no two are alike
  • A great big stack of the original blue linksys routers. These only support old versions of OpenWRT.
