and receive on one of 11 channels in the 2.4-GHz frequency
band. This is a public frequency, and is unlicensed by the
| How do I secure the data crossing
a bridge's radio link?
Enable Wired Equivalency Protocol (WEP)
to encrypt the payload of packets sent across a radio link.
| What is the typical range for
The typical range depends on many factors,
including the following: data rate (bandwidth) desired, antenna
type, antenna cable length, and device receiving the
transmission. In an outdoor antenna installation, range can
be up to 1.5 km or more
| What is the speed of the bridge's
The bridge's Ethernet port supports 10 Mbps
over a 10Base-T RJ-45 connector (half-duplex only).
| What are possible sources of
interference for the radio frequency link of the bridge?
Interference can come from a number of sources,
including 2.4-GHz cordless phones, improperly shielded microwave
ovens, and wireless equipment manufactured by other companies.
Police radar, electrical motors, and moving metal parts of
machinery can cause interference too.

| Do the antennas need line of
sight to function?
The antennas connecting to a bridge need
not only visual line of sight, but also radio line of sight.
Radio line of sight includes an elliptical region around the
visual line of sight called the Fresnel zone. For optimal
performance, make sure the Fresnel zone is clear of all obstructions
including trees, power lines, buildings, and geographic obstacles
