We had 10mhz channels running fine in 4.4 on R52N for months, but they broke when we upgraded to 4.9.

I don't think it's a R52N problem, it's a RouterOS problem.

Hopefully they are working on nstreme so we can do some longer links that non-nstreme won't handle

Thank you!

I got a reply from Mikrotik support about this subject and he said something I didn't quite understand - maybe you can enlighten me?

"You can add LED for the power, it will increase the edge to +0.6V."

What does this mean? Turn on all the LED's on the board?

thanks,

Randy

TDMA and GPS on a routerboard?

I'd much rather see polling done in hardware (fpga) so we can scale like crazy, but would TDMA be of any use in software? Someone apparently is doing that... Examples: FreeBSD (looks like it could even use GPS - why not add GPS to a routerboard?): http://siomail.ucsd.edu/pipermail/swap/2009-January/...

Confirming current status of 802.11n

Can we get a confirmation from Mikrotik on a few things on 4.0b4?

1. Is nstreme polling working with N?

2. Adaptive noise immunity - that is not working, correct?

3. WDS / non-wds - what works and what doesn't? Workarounds?

Thanks!

4.0B4

Be careful upgrading to 4.0b4. I lost a link doing this. Appears to be something to do with noise immunity. Others have had similar problems. When I can get the far side and shut that off, I'll post whether that fixed it. Link comes up for only a second or so then gets lost.

All AMPDU priorities are checked and we are using the 1st and 3rd chain.
I think this is your problem.

The chains are 0,1,2,3

Are you using the FIRST and THIRD chain (0 and 2) or 1 and 3? You should probably be using 0 and 2 if you are using the two outside antenna connectors.
