PC Highsite – Donations Required

We have raised enough donations for a replacement and have done so! PC is back up and running within a week after all the donations and help!

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 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 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.
