Point to Point T1 - Equipment needed
Posted on 2009-05-17
I am a computer tech, but have little or no experience dealing with T1 lines. I have a customer that needs to relay radio information from a station to a tower (about 30 miles away). It is only sending about 64kb/s of info so a T1 is major overkill and we are told that DSL on both ends will work fine. The problem is that where the tower is located we can't get any type of broadband. My customer has paid for an expensive point-to-point T1 to be installed between the location. There is a network jack on the bottom of the boxes at each end. All I need to do is connect one computer at location A with one computer at location B. What equipment is required to accomplish this? I have tried connected one computer directly to the T1 box at one end and connecting a regular wireless G router at the other end but that doesn't work. As you can tell, I'm completely out of my element. Any step by step help would be greatly appreciated. I need to know exactly what equipment I need and how to hook it up at both ends. Thanks in advance.
