Internet Access Problems Continue

By: nobyter, 12:19 AM GMT on March 04, 2010

We are still having problems with Broadband over Power Line (BPL)Internet access. It may be that our house is protected against surges that cause the signal to get weakened before entering the house, but that would be all of the time and not as sporadic.

We're sorry that this is causing problems with updates to the weather data and the weather web cam. We will be working on this problem to get it resolved or change access. The solar energy system for the web cam, the weather station, and the wireless access from those to the local network is working perfectly.

We don't know why someone couldn't use one of these mountain tops to link a fiber line to long range wireless access point and provide 50.00 a month broadband service. We think even now in this economy, we could get 100 different accounts around the mountain. HEY, we've come along way since the "Waltons" (and no, I don't know John Boy), we got electricity, we need reliable broadband Internet.

Maybe Norfolk and Southern Railways could put a node on their fiber at the Post Office and we would give them a live feed to our camera, LOL.

PS, don't recommend sattelite, Grr!
