Where is my closest Portable Internet Tower
I got my outdoor modem today and tried to find a signal. I could, without much problem, get 3 flashing lights pointing at a Rogers tower directly west of me. At no time did they turn solid, even after plugging it into the computer. I have not yet activated my account, so I don't know if that step is necessary to actually receive the Rogers sign up page. I called tech support (I may have woken him up) and he told me the only tower in my area was due east of me (on the other side of a mountain) and that unless my 3 lights were solid, I had nothing. So my question is (finally) which towers are in my area that will work. I live on Salt Spring Island, in BC, between Victoria and Vancouver. I live about 500 meters ASL and am line of site to much of Vancouver and Victoria. The tech support guy said the only tower was in North Cowichan, BC, but I found it hard to believe that is the only tower for all Victoria and Vancouver!
