IRC Servers

IRC enables users to discuss issues, make plans, help out others with their wireless projects, chat instantly with others, etc.

Although not the official voice of Air-Stream, and some people there may not be Air-Stream members it can still be a useful source of information. But please bear in mind that this service has been set up by individual members and so does not formally represent the views of Air-Stream Wireless.

How to connect

IRC servers can be accessed via the Air-Stream wireless network and the internet using a compatible IRC client.
