You can use the queue name in place of the number. Same is true for any menu where unique names are required (e.g. interface).

Reset Simple Queue Counters from API ? [SOLVED]

I'm trying to reset the simple queue counters on a specific queue from the API using PHP (not all queues)

It does not appear to be possible to specify a queue by anything but the queue number, and it doesn't seem to be possible to get the number from the API ?

Anyone else do this ?

Re: Problem with AP 5.21 + NV2

The domed cap's were a big problem on RB450G for me. Lost 12 boards in the space of 8 months. Found that if I powered them with 18VDc across the power adaptor plug it wasn't an issue, but using the 24VDc POE into port one they would blow the caps. As a matter of fact I did loose two RB493's early on...

Re: RB411AR - Horrible range with built-in wireless card

You need an antenna specific to the frequency you are using. You can't use an 'A mode' (5.x GHz) antenna on 'B Mode' (2.4Ghz) and expect it to propagate. There are A/B/G mode antenna but typically that's like a little rubby ducky type - and they do almost nothing other than adding a 50 ohm load to t...

I disagree with n21roadie. I don't think you have a Hardware problem. The issue is that you need more height to get F1 and preferably F2 above the Trees. More power is not the correct solution, although it may help for a short time. You need to raise each end roughly another 24 meters to make this a...

Check the VSWR on the antenna, cable and pigtail. If you don't have a meter, then swap the 1]Card, 2]pigtail, 3]LMR and 4]antenna in that order to see which one it fixes it.

Sounds like an obstructed shot. Are you clear on at least Fresnel 1 ? Look at it in Radio mobile, or maybe Google Earth and see what's in the way.

NV2 at 1slot and 18km may help a bit by controlling the lag on the link, but that's not the real solution. You need Clear Fresnel.

If you're changing the IP address, and you are connected to the router through IP then maybe you get disconnected when the IP Address is applied to the interface that you are connected through.
