About Me


My name is Graham. I’ve been building large wired and wireless networks to deliver Internet access to homes and businesses since about 2004.

I started this website as a way to share what I’ve learned about building small to large Internet networks using inexpensive, off the shelf technology. My hope is that people will be able to use this information to improve connectivity in their communities.
