I have an off-topic network problem, but some ppl here might help me. I
need to build an IP network line from the middle of a construction site
to an internet connection place for a one-time event. The distance is
around 500 - 1000m. No line of sight and therefore directed WLAN will
not work without several relays.
At the moment I'm thinking of using a copper line and some old fashioned
1MBit lease line modems. Do you have other ideas of getting this to work
or may have any parts which you can lend?
The event will happen at the end of July on a single week day. Thank you
for your help.
my 13 year old son will be giving a talk tomorrow in school
about "the internet". He has decided to focus in the talk on
the technical side, like fundamental principles of how DNS
resolution works. He has asked me if I could help him find
some datacenter-type equipment that he can show off to the
other students in his class. For example some rackmount
device and a bit of optical fibre, if possible. There is no
need for the stuff to be in working order.
Since the talk is tomorrow, we'd need to pick the stuff up today
in the afternoon or evening; I'd be happy to do this anywhere
is the Zurich or Zurich highlands (Zürcher Oberland) area. We'll
bring it back tomorrow in the afternoon after the talk.
We'd be very grateful if someone would help us with this!
