I say just call your dads Wisp, he can login to the AP and tell what
singnal level you are connected at. He can also tell you what to ping.
The "gateway" is just a name for every router between you and the final
destination. So your Wisps gateway looks like (10.8.7.1) maybe, and look
for packet loss more then 50ms delay and more then 1% packet loss to
that IP. If you first couple hops are over 50ms, unless you are on a
satelite link, that seems kind of high.
You cant change the channel of your CPE. Your CPE asks your wisp's AP
for the channel. You can ask your wisp to try another channel
CPE is what you call the Client's equipment.
Dont worry about Fast TCP v3. Here is a better google search something
like introduction to tcp, or tcp networking.
