    47 1a)  UM62x1  USB WiMAX dongles, per your measurements and pending order, $33-55
    48 From Derek Meyer:
    49         I made a wiki page for all to view regarding the USB devices:   http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/WIMXUWI/TeltonikaUM62x1
    50         "Just worked", happy with them.
    51         Good RSSI, comparable to Intel 6250 inside laptop
    52         Teltonika would customize them
    53         Mimo
    54         Same chipset as the HTC EVO handset
    55 
    56 
    57 How To's
    58

    64         See data collection below for how to find a list of commands.
    65 
    66 Embedded Linux
    67         Verified working with Openwrt on Routerstation Pro.
    68         TODO: Complete kernel module list. Kernel has to be compiled with cdc_ether, scsi cdrom
    69         If using Openwrt, compile busybox with eject command or dmesg to find out what the device shows up as:
    70                 opkg update
    71                         opkg install sdparm
    72                         sdparm --command=eject /dev/sg? 
    73                         Then use the above Linux tutorial.
    74 
    75 Windows
    76         Verified working in Windows 7 64-bit
    77         Did not test without installing Teltonika software

    85 Settings
    86 After the device is set up, the USB device will appear as a wired Ethernet device with the, dhcp release, IP address of 192.168.0.x.
    87

    96         Add your base station(s) information
    97 
    98 3. Verify connectivity
    99         Note that your settings are stored on the device, so this will only have to be done once for each device.
    100 
    101 Data collection & Misc
    102         One tab I would like to point out is the CLI (command line interface) that you can run several commands to collect all kinds of information.
