The QTH is in the eastern part of Munich, Hermanth. The old one was north of the city.

The bridge I suggested is first connected to your PC, where you logon and authenticate.
The MAC address then goes into the local Radius server and should allow the RRC to work
afterwards. The problem is when you need a second connection for your PC and the
connection is not free. Then another solution may be better. Here is a similar thread:

I hope this helps.

Thanks, Hemanth,

The case was not finished for those photos, there is a hinged door covering the back of the case.
The cover inside contains the RRC and a lithium battery (theoretically 9.8 Ah @ 12.6v).

The shack is my old one. I now have a new QTH and have a better set-up there. I can even raise
and lower the mast remotely.

I am leaving town Friday for the weekend, best to catch me next week during your morning.

Speak to you then.

My pleasure, Hemanth.

No problem, we can speak by phone or Skype (mitchwo). I have helped a few people out who
were completely frustrated. Once the network stuff works, it is almost plug-and-play.

I lent out my go-box for a couple of weeks, but have some early photos that I have

Hi Hemanth,

There are a couple of ways to do this:

-The easiest way is to use a bridge. The one I use is the Netgear WNCE2001:
- The second method is to bridge the network in your PC, by telling Windows to share the connection
   and pluging the RRC into the ethernet port on the PC. Use Google to find instructions for your Windows
   version, it can be tricky. I have had bad luck trying to do this with XP, but supposedly newer Windows
   are easier to implement.

Yet another way would be to not drag the RRC and TS-480 head along, but instead use the PC Client
along with software control: This also solves the problem
of using WiFi where you have to pay, or if you need to use a VPN.

I personally use both, depending upon where I am traveling to (car or plane) and how long I will be
staying. I have an extra case with an RRC built-in, where the head, etc. are stored. I also have a
PC Client when this is not convenient.

Hi Franco,

I have a similar problem that I have traced to having an SPE Expert on COM1. It
causes a loud buzz/hum that kills the connection. See:

In my case, it only occurs on firmware 2.41 and when the USB plug is used (not
the serial cable) on the control RRC COM2. When I unplug the USB cable, it works
again. Are these the same conditions you are using? Maybe our problems are
related and can help the guys in Sweden. They have been directly in contact with
me and I sent them details last week.

Hi Steve,

It sounds like the other box still has a fixed internal IP number, so it probably just needs
to be changed to DHCP.

In either case, just use the Microbit Setup Manager via USB. This allows you to change to DHCP,
call-up the IP address and have the browser go directly to the box. It looks like you already are
using the Setup Manager, so just make sure that DHCP is turned on.

Hi Eric,

That is very strange.....I would try to connect one directly, anyway, just to see if
it works or not. Maybe there is a firmware update for the Orange Livebox that fixes
the problem, or else you can change the Livebox to a different method of encryption,
such as WPA instead of WPA2. I know I wouldn't give up so easily, but I am a masochist
sometimes.  ;)

Either way, I have had good luck with the WNCE2001 so far.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Hi Eric,

I see that no one answered you yet.

Basically, if you have the routers set to bridge mode, then the end devices will receive their
IP addresses from the main router. The bridge should not have DHCP turned-on. This is how
the WNCE2001 works, and is not how you described it. Check the Linksys boxes to make sure
that they are in bridge mode!

The easiest thing then to do is to let DHCP on the main router provide the internal IP addresses,
then just go into the router and make them fixed. That way, you know that the settings are correct and
that the router knows where they are. I have found that inexperienced people trying to set IP
addresses mess things up 90% of the time. Just keep it simple and you should be ok.

This network stuff can be really confusing and I have seen people give-up and sell their RemoteRig
boxes, since they could never get them working. Just keep cool, and you should get help from

Send me the control RRC settings to look at. The only thing that comes quickly to mind
is that you don't have the radio-RRC's IP address/DynDNS address entered.

Have you been able to locate the cause of this problem? I really would like to
move the users over to the new firmware once this is resolved.

If you can't duplicate this, drop me a note offline. I can give you access to the
problem system, but we would have to define a specific time.

The jumpers are clearly marked on the photos on page 20 - 22. They are so large, that maybe
you overlooked them? They are much easier to set than the straps. They are jumpers like what
you find in computers and similar equipment.

It is all in the manual, make sure you download it at:

The strappings for the TS-2000 can be found on page 143.

The jumper position details are from page 20 - 22.

If you finally get to the network, then I will help you get this working next week
when I am back home in Munich. Hang in there!

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Glad to hear it, Alex!

Then it was defective, but at least everything is ok again.

I never received any feedback from anyone using 2.41 for FSK.

I need to install RemoteRig soon in a situation where this will be critical,
so I would appreciate any tips or feedback.
