*3 Ubiquiti Airgrid M5 (used, untested)
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.

::The AirGrid M5 uses 5 vdc PoE. 5.25 vdc absolute max! Anything more will fry it!

== Hand tools ==
:802.11 b/g/n
:[[Mesh/a x b : c notation|2 x 2 : 2]]
:Source: [[Mesh/Purchases#First_crowd-sourced_purchase|First crowdsourced purchase]].


* 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.


==== Useless-Seeming Gear ====
== Power tools ==


A lot of the older gear (including the linksys wrt54 routers which we now have a big bin of) is starting to seem useless. However, we should keep in mind that they can still serve as wired routers and/or switches:
* Makita impact driver (battery powered)
* Makita drill (battery powered)
* Makita battery charger
* 3x Makita batteries


* In a couple instances, we've had sudoers report that their home network modem serves a 10.* home IP range, which conflicts with our mesh IP system. In these cases, we can send someone home with a  crappy router (wouldn't even likely need openwrt) which they could connect to their modem and put in between the modem and their mesh access point. The crappy router could serve a 192.168.1/24 range and do NAT translation which would allow the mesh node to operate.
== Testing ==


* A lot of our longer range gear (ubiquiti, etc.) only has one ethernet hub. That makes it less than ideal for folks who want to run their own services. If we use the crappy router as a proper wired router, we can add network attached devices to run services. This could include network-attached storage, raspberry pie/beaglebone black mini-servers/other server machines.
* Two ethernet cable testers (need batteries)


= non-OpenWRT compatible routers =
= Consumables for node-mounting =


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

= Needs fixing =
* 3x One Laptop Per Child XO Laptop (one power supply)

Please specify what it is assumed we'd need to repair this stuff.
= Less than useful stuff =


*ARCFlex Freestation 2
* A bunch of random indoor routers that don't support OpenWRT
:802.11 b/g/n 2.4 ghz
* A bunch of random indoor routers that do support modern OpenWRT but no two are alike
:Dual radio. One 2x2:2 and one 1x1:1.
* A great big stack of the original blue linksys routers. These only support old versions of OpenWRT.
:Includes grounded PoE.
:Source: Bought on ebay by [[User:Juul|Juul]] ([[User talk:Juul|talk]]).
:Price: $60
:What's broken: The OpenWRT build for this router has a bug (ssh/telnet not enabled on ethernet port). Just needs serial console access to enable ssh.
 
*3 Picostation 2 HPs
:The power LED doesn't come on when they are plugged in to PoE. They are also missing antennas and weather covers.
 
= Fubar =
 
Gear so broken we've given up on it, except possibly for parts.
