Re: 4.13 Nv2 great but loss of some monitoring parameters?

NV2 is terrible on 5GHz-A, 40MHz channel width. x86 based routers are freezing if using NV2. On some machines, problem with this has been solved by reducing hw-retries value to 7 but still I have some routers which freeze constantly. Can someone post a picture with setting on nv2 links using 40MHz ...

They still don't know the exact cause but thinks it's a problem with the Atheros Chipset Drivers. Don't think therefore it's anything to do with your setup bu...

Re: Customize Signup page was not working

We are having exactly the same issue using ROS V4.11 , the pages have been used multiple times for testing the PayPal payment process, and it works exactly as it should.

Except the /umfiles they simply aren't visible with ftp, winbox or terminal.

Has anyone solved this one yet ?

Re: Too frequent problems with R52n (asymetric signal levels)

The R52(H) are know to blow the diversity chips resulting in a Tx/RX difference of about 15-20db. Not having worked with the N version I can't say if this is relevant or not. Only if they are not installed correctly - such as powering on without an antenna connected or not using surge protectors....

Re: OSPF Route Distribution and Fall-over Issues

Hi Eric, we have a similar setup. About 30 AP's loads of P2P Links and OSPF routed throughout our network. We use EOIP to transport PPPoE tunnels back to our boarder router... and frequently have MTU troubles. Seems as if we have to use 1450 for our PPPoE tunnels as EOIP doesn't properly carry 1500....

Re: PPP COUNT to EMAIL

Hi again, would there be any chance that you could help re-write it for 2.9.48 Router OS.

It is our main boarder router and i don't want to upgrade it for a little while yet.

I tested it on our v3 router and it works brilliantly.


Thanks,

Re: PPP COUNT to EMAIL

To query the amount of active ppp sessions on our boarder router, at a 5 min interval,

/ppp active print count-only

Then email us if it the count of those active sessions is below 175.

I do it manually now to check if the network is running and customers online.

Thanks for the help.
