One thing I wish, is that you could force the DHCP server in the thing to dole out IP's when in bridge mode.  I am sure our specific use case is limited, whereas there would normally be some other DHCP server on the network.

Well....then it wouldn't be bridge mode. Bridge mode, by definition, is "cable replacement". No DHCP, no funny business, just make it look to the device on the other side like I'm plugged directly in.


There should be a way to configure it to be a DHCP server without mucking up other stuff, but it's been a few years since I regularly configured these, having left Masque for Figure 53. I unfortunately don't have one to poke at right now, and the one regular gig I have where I've to a UniFi uses it in bridge mode. I know the DHCP server in the firmware back in 2013 was giving me grief, though; I had started poking at seeing if I could find an Arduino sketch that could act as a DHCP server, so I could just have a dedicated server in a little box on an Arduino Ethernet.

As far as appearance, mine were customized so they looked more like pipe bombs, LOL. I had our brilliant metalworker at Masque, Felix, build me custom enclosures out of schedule 40 with threaded ends that added an Ethercon at the connector end, so that on Broadway shows or tours with FOH truss, you can just run an Ethercon in the truss bundle, and stick one of the omni antennas on the Bullet and cheseborough it right to the truss. Great coverage both sides of the stage in most any house I sent them to. (The sch40 also made it really fun to put a longer high gain omni on and pretend it was a light saber...)

You would think so but I had no end of trouble getting DHCP to work, reliably, with all my gear.
Would not want to try to get this on a plane in my carry on though.... :o

So I have now had some gigs to try this out on and, like a useful tool should, plugs in and WORKS every time.
FINALLY!
I was very close to selling it out of frustration.
That said, when other techs see it, there are raised eyebrows and some "suggestion" of what it is. ;D

What antenna are you using here?

Thanks!

I used this one from Super Pass in Waterloo Canada.

However, the Bullet is now in landfill somewhere and the antenna in a drawer.
 I bought a used Netgear N600 and with less than 5 minutes of effort, got it to work with the consoles I use.

Ugh, how frustrating.  I actually just bought a used N600 as well, ha.  I'd love to have a slick setup of a PoE managed switch with a nice outdoor WAP for controlling everything, however after reading a bunch of threads, including this one - I'm pretty sure I'm just going to start small with a consumer router such as the N600 since have limited IT experience.

A wise choice  :)

In our shop we have a couple of non-wifi boxes that do everything else - several ports, DHCP server, etc. A couple of our more industrial access points (such as the Bullet) get paired with one of those boxes for a complete solution. 

But the N600 is pretty hard to top as far as "always works" goes.

Brief case friendly too.
Just need to make a little bracket for mic stand mounting to get it up in the air.
