Kyocera access bridge and unipod
20/12/2017 10:19
A local (Ghana) ISP is now establishing an iBurst wireless network, and offering internet connection via a Kyocera Access Bridge http://global.kyocera.com/prdct/telecom/office/iburst/desktop.html Could anyone please advise as to whether this is likely to work with the 10/100 Ethernet facility available via a Unipod?

My laptop and RPC are already networked, but I'm not keen on the laptop being online at all, so it is powered-off when the RPC is online (as now, via dial-up).

Since my original post I have found a statement, in another document, which says that Users get to enjoy all their favorite broadband applications [...] all on standard platforms such as Windows, Linux, and Macintosh. No special client software is required for iBurst other than the iBurst modem driver for laptops and desktops.

Presumably a RISC OS driver does not exist, so that would seem to make the modem a non-starter. Is there such a thing as a generic driver which could be adapted? I could configure the modem on a WinXP laptop but, without the driver for RISC OS, I guess that it would still not work with the RPC.

Their router apparently has a driver pre-installed, so that it can connect to the modem, and other computers can then connect via the router.

I am not certain that this information is correct, since the ISP is not used to fielding questions which do not relate to Windows.

Anyway, a friend of mine is about to install an iBurst modem on his Windows machine, and I'll try to borrow it, when he has configured the modem, to see if there is any chance of connecting via Unipod here.

Thanks for the responses.

The only worry is whether the Access Bridge can be configured by one of the browsers available to RISC OS. No-one can tell you that without trying it.

Connection via USB: No chance.

The iBurst modem connects to its wireless WAN http://global.kyocera.com/prdct/telecom/office/iburst/desktop.html The router http://iburst.getwirelessinternet.co.za/iburst-addons/ connects to the iBurst modem, and allows more than one computer to share the iBurst connection.

It costs $250, so I'd like to be reasonably certain that it will work, before trying it! The ISP has found that my friend lives in an area of low signal strength, so they are trying to fix that, before installing his modem. I'll have to wait for that outcome...

They have a device called an iBurst Access Bridge which seems to be a kind of wireless modem with an Ethernet and USB port. Looks like you can connect this to a computer by either port or connect it to a router to allow multiple access. Since they have a wireless router in their addons it must be possible to connect computers which don't have any special iBurst software running on them.

I assume this as the site has addons including 4 port broadband routers, bothe wired and wireless. If you can set up the iBurst modem with your XP laptop then the RO machine may well be able to connect via a router. Makes it all more expensive though. http://iburst.getwirelessinternet.co.za/iburst-addons/ Good luck Alan -- Alan Calder, Milton Keynes, UK.

Obviously ISP in the UK don't use ADSL as their own connection to the internet but I was wondering if they may in Ghana.

Are they calling the enduser wireless unit a modem?

Several ISPs have their own satellite dishes but Ghana Telecom, the state owned telco, connects via the submarine fibre-optic cable. It also leases bandwidth to other providers.

It seems so.
