PC Highsite – Donations Required

Our Mikrotik RouterBoard RB2011 that was the core routerboard for the PC (Pretoria Central) Highsite was recently damaged. This is an essential piece of equipment, it specifically links AC, MQ and HF. It is the main North to South link, it also runs a mirror for the 172.25.250.250 website.

To remedy the issue we require donations to buy a new Mikrotik RouterBoard RB2011iL-IN, this is the best, fastest and easiest way to get PC (Pretoria Central) back up and running, which will, in turn, fix the 172.25.250.250 mirror, as well as fix the links for AC, MQ and HF highsites. The PTAWUG admins can not stress enough how important it is to link the WUG (Wireless User Group) back together.

The loss of this link has caused us to rely on TN (Teraco Network) solely for our North to South link. This has been a true test of the efficiency of TN and has shown how well it works while still not being maxed out, we have still at the same time had our CTWUG, JAWUG and RBWUG at our low latency. This has also been a true test of our filters that are there to prevent TN from causing routing issues.

All has worked well but we still urgently require that the RouterBoard at PC be replaced as soon as possible, and we require as many donations as possible. We also need to get more donations so that in the future we have enough money to buy such a kit as soon as possible and not have to wait.

We require a Facebook and Twitter page manager, along with all other types of social networks. Anybody, do not be afraid of it – we welcome any of you PTAWUG members to help us once again.


Network status brings the following: The users page reports 88 unique  routerboards excluding highsite routerboards, in general families use the wug together so this is not much of an issue but it has increased from 84 last month. The users not connected in two days is 60 (down from 66 last month), which is between two and six months. We are working to get these users “back” and once not only these are back to start expanding again.
