If it is over vegetation, than 5GHz, but if it is through the vegetation, then 900MHz. Basically, with higher frequency it is likely you will get higher throughput, but you need absolute clearance, no obstacles. With ostacles, lower frequencies will do better.

This make me hard to believe, are you sure? The problem is MT can't see IDE disk at all, I don't see any difference if you boot from network or CD.

Re: Failed 3.4 to 3.5 upgrade

Does that problem is dependent on some certain hardware? If so we can take flash out, put in a device with no such hardware, boot it, and downgrade/upgrade to 3.6 when it is available.
It seems so. I will try to put it in another old Compaq machine and try.

Disabling HT in BIOS works!
I didn't have this problem after upgrading from 3.3 to 3.4, but I have problem upgrading from 3.4 to 3.5. I think I've tried disabling HT, but it didn't work. And my CPU doesn't have HT at all.
