Re: report on noise floor and signal strength

I may have not been clear on what I need. When I say snapshot I do not mean a picture. All I want is a text report of the noise floor and the tx and rx at the moment the reading was taken. I would like it to be done once a hour and 24 hr a day. then email it to me like the voltage report is done now.

report on noise floor and signal strength

Is there a way to take a snapshot of the noise floor and signal strength say every hour and email it? I already have the script to take a voltage reading once a hour and email it each night to me. I just want to see the Variation of signal strengh and the noise floor over the day.

Re: Signal Strength bouncing

no the antenna and cables have been on for a few months. the 5ghz backhaul works fine only the 2 2.4 ghz have problems. it seem to occure about every 10-15 minutes. I wanted to attach a screen shot but can't figure out how to copy it to this post.

Re: Signal Strength bouncing

I had not done anything before the problem started. Since then I have upgraded the RB433AH from 3.30 to 4.11 and all the clients to 4.11. It did not help.

we are running 2.4 B on the Band choice

Thanks

Old versions od routerOS for RB 200

I have several RB 200 r3 boards and want to upgrade OS to 3.30. Most are running 2.8.24. I tried to drag 3.30 to the files folder but it would not let me. I down loaded the 3.30 from MikroTik I could not find an earlier version. Do you upgrade the older RB200 differently than the newer 100,400 or 50...
