lost ether1 only serial possible upgrade ROS

I have lost ether1 on a RB2011 and the os on NAND is lost with an update.

is there any way to install ROS via serial ? ( or usb maybe ? )

i know the firmware can with a xxx.fwf file.

maybe there is special file somewhere for this purpose which i can upload via xmodem ?

What makes this interesting, is that CCQ drops when the link is idle and there's no traffic. Yet, when there's traffic all CCQs are well over the 80% and we still only get about 30Mbps / 35Mbps. CCQ can only be measured with active traffic. This is why NV2 needs airtime fairness or at least a funct...

Re: Probe Thread

so the Big question would be ;

can you put a TCP probe in a "Function"

or

can you use a "Function" in or with a TCP probe

Re: Probe Thread

Can you put a regex that matches door closed in the receive? Then you could at least make multiple probes with different "returns" so if the door is closed the tcp probe is true and then when ever the door is open, false. the Probe is already working for the door sensor. the received regex = ~02000...

Feature Req: Cpe Follow Ap ChannelWidth

I noticed that Cpe does not follow Ap channel width , and has to be set manual on client cpe
( to allow the cpe to follow Ap 40/80Mhz Ce / eC .. )

Running 6.37.1 / using Nv2

It would be very convenient / more clear if this would a default "auto" setting in Client-mode i think.
