Re: nv2 tcp single conncetion problem

I switched already another ap to nstreme with some tweaking and is working a lot better. even though other antennas connected to it disconnect sometimes, throughput is a lot better compared to nv2. nv2 seem to be a disaster on point to multi point maybe in noisy environments.

nv2 tcp single conncetion problem

I am experiencing low bandwidth test from a single tcp connection over nv2 protocol. This problem is not present over nstream protocol. since nstream has some disconnecting problems i have preferred using nv2. Or should i not use nv2 and nstream at all? i seen many posts in the past about this but n...

Re: Open Wireless Encryption

What would you like to achieve by this? Why cannot users put in a one time password?


No, users can not put in a one time password. Actually i don't have to know the costumers. I just want to provide free wireless access on a secured wireless connection.

Open Wireless Encryption

Is it possible to set a Wireless Access Point open for anyone to connect without having to input a pass key and at the same time have the wireless connection encrypted over the air?

Re: Nstreme or Nv2. Is Nstreme Obsolete?

Nv2 should give you better speed. Nstreme in some cases could have better latency.
nv2 does not give better speed in my case and nstreme is disconnecting because of pool timeout.

Re: Omnitik issue

I have set Frequency Mode to manual-txpower not to regulatory domain. on the other side those with the long distance are SEXTANT G 5HPnD. those far away have better throughput with nstreme protocol but when i change the protocol another cpe that is located close keeps disconnecting and associating.

Omnitik has a great performance and i like the dual polarization very effective.
