If the cpu uasage goes over a certain set percent then have an email sent to tell you that the routerboard is under a load to look for problems. Has anyone done this? I think I would want it to tell when the cpu hits 50%. thanks

I currently have 1 6db omni and 31 clients which are also mikrotik with xr9 radios. I was going to replace the omni with 3 sectors but I like to keep things very simple so that's why I was wondering if the cards would interfere with each other in the same box more than in separate ones. thanks

Re: SR2 re-associate problem

I think that the issues are software related. When the clients can't reassociate you can look at the logs and see that the clients are being sent deathentication packets.

Re: Replacing Teletronics CPE Router With RB532A

update 1 I currently have UBNT taking a look at 1 of my routerboards with an xr2 card. I am starting to think that it is a software problem. The first time I had this problem I tried 2 different sr2 cards and a cm9 and then a senoa 2511 and the 2511 worked just fine. This tells me that it is having ...

Re: SR2 re-associate problem

I talked with someone at ubiquiti today and he thinks the problem has something to do with noise. I don't have an sr2 or xr2 up with more than 10 clients on it to see if it helps but I think it would be worth a shot. I do have 1 up and running and for the heck of it I set the noise floor at -85 and ...

Re: SR2 re-associate problem

Just to let everyone know I have seen the same problems and my clients were tranzeo and teletronics. I've had several people tell me not to mix client equipment or you will see problems ( prism or atheros) . Although you can use a tranzeo AP and not see these same issues, just high ping times and ma...

I tried installing a new client with the latest tr-cpq from tranzeo and it will not connect to the 2511. It did flash all the ...

how to limit sessions per client

I am sure that this can be done but I'm not sure how to do it. I was needing to limit sessions because of certain viruses that will create thousands of sessions and eat up all the air time on the radio. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have the latest firmware on the cpe's but the problem seems like the access point didn't intialize the wireless card. Even my laptop with built in wireless doesn't get a signal 100 feet away when this happens.

SR2's and Tranzeo CPE's for clients ?????

I have asked this question on here before but haven't heard a good reason that this shouldn't work. The SR2 is in AP Bridge mode and everytime you reboot, loose power or apply a new setting the clients rarely reassociate without diabling and renabling the wireless interface several times. When I say...

Problem with rebooting

Each time I have rebooted the RB532 with one SR2 and one CM9 none of the clients reconnect. The clients are conecting to the SR2 and the backhaul is on the CM9. I then make changes and reboot it again but still no clients. Although I have found if I keep rebooting it will eventually let clients conn...
