Re: RB532 mystery UDP Packets

I'm positive those packets are from the router. Even when isolated the traffic light will flash when connected into a switch with no other connections. After the upgrades and BIOS reflash this is the best I've seen it behave. I'll keep testing it. Maybe it won't get worse and I can use it in my shop.

Re: RB532 mystery UDP Packets

I was trying to use a rule to drop them. But it seemed to ignore the rule. I'll set it up as a simple AP here in my shop to see what happens. I've been wanting to dump that crappy Dlink and use this as our broadband firewall / router. Networking is not my main business. I do it on the side when I'm ...

Re: RB532 mystery UDP Packets

It's just junk going no where. I replaced the unit since it wouldn't perform in the field. I was just hoping to fix it.

Re: RB532 mystery UDP Packets

There's not much here in this test network. Just a few Windows machines in a Peer2Peer, 1 8 port 10/100 unmanaged switch, 1 linux web server, 1 Dlink Router with wireless running DHCP.

The RB532 will do this even when nothing else is plugged in to the switch. The amber traffic light just blinks away.

Re: wpa no good for client wifi?

Any solutions on this? Our Mac OSX clients can't connect using WPA or WPA2 w/ TKIP or AES. Same thing, deauth and timeout. Using a RB532 and a CM9. This is a NEW router with the latest RouterOS. WinXP clients can connect fine with the preshared key. This interface is a VAP. Perhaps I could use PPPoe...

Re: SR2

And the linksys and Seavsoft devices were also using 5dBi Omni's? When you're comparing devices it's best to compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges.[/quote] Yes the linksys had 5dbi rubber duckies. The RB532 showed a major decrease in range in the same enviroment. I know the Linksys is a PO...

SR2

I don't know about too much power. I could see the card overheating and failing or signal loss if being overdriven. I feel the SR2 doesn't put out enough. Using 26dbm on anntenna b and b/g with a 5dbi omni antenna my Linksys with Seavsoft has better range @ 200mw. Also a 100mw 3com 8750 has about th...
