Re: LHG 60G experience

Hi! I have a strange problem: - 2x LHG 60G link, 395m - RSSI stable at -50 to -52 dB, Signal-Quality 80-95 Next to the LHG on one side, there is a large (3x3x3m), rotating advertisement-cube When the rotation of the cube is off, the link is 100% stable.

Re: LHG 60G experience

Can you give me a hint on how to transfer ALL vlans through a LHG-Link? Do I have to configure the VLANs, or is it enough to leave "VLAN Filtering" disabled on the bridge?
Yes. Do a plain bridge and do no tagging then all packets go through.
Thank you!
This is working perfectly.

Re: LHG 60G experience

Mikrotik has such a GREAT product with the LHG60G, but details are just too "cheap".

A "LHG-60G-PRO" with weather-proof, professional layout and better align-feature would open the doors to new customers for mikrotik. For short links, LHG-60G-PRO could be as good or better than UBNT AirFiber, etc.

Re: LHG 60G experience

Update for ALU vs LHG dish:

The ALU dish has a strange behaviour: RSSI is good, Signal ist good, but MCS is unstable!

With LHG-dish, i see a stable MCS of 8 (PHY Rate: 2.3 Gbps). With the upgrade-kit, MCS goes up and down from 4 to 8.

Do you have any other idea, to make the LHG "snow-proof"?

Re: LHG 60G experience

Hi!

Can you tell me, what kind of grounding you are using with the LHG60?

Option 1:
Use shielded patch-cable and a surge-protector like the UBNT ETH-SP-G2 to ground the patch-cord.

Option 2:
Add second cable to the antenna with grounding-cable

Option 3:
Option 1+2
