Re: DFS Mode

It's said Bridge mode (only two radios) is like AP mode, but I can use only one radio, so I suppose dfs-mode is suitable also for bridge mode, not only for AP mode. Then, if it wouldn't be available on bridge mode, it means I can't use bridge mode on 5GHz band due the presence of radars, doesn't it?...

Re: DFS Mode

Ok, but dfs works on AP; in bridge mode both work as AP, if I'm not wrong.
My couple of RB works only if only one has got the DFS enable, is correct this?
The correct scan-list (let's imaging I'm working at 5GHz-5MHz band, at 5535 MHz) is 5535-5540-5545 or 5540-5545?
Thanks.

Re: Wireless Data from unknown device x10000

Hi. I have the same problem on my RB411 in bridge mode working at 5GHz; in my case the 00:00:...:FF MAC address is the one of the other bridge.
Maybe some problems with radars?
The correct setting to manage radars is "radar-detect"?

On my RB112 I can set the frequencies of 2467, 2472 MHz; while on my RB333 these frequencies are missing.
The R52 radio card is the same on both routerboards, I know there are different versions of O.S.: on RB333 I have 3.0rc4, on the other 2.9.35.
