Re: radius server not responding

Well a quick and nasty fix.. It appears that the reason this happens is that when you have a hotspot in the new version the radius seems to not work for 172.0.0.1 but will work for the IP of the hotspot but if you do this the firewall MASQ will fire the request out the gateway. Fix for me was to add...

Re: WDS Bridge or MESH information and examples

Thank you for the pointer. One other question however. By the looks of things these models use a device with two wireless cards in them. We are looking at using the Omnitik. From what I see there we set all the units to AP Bridge mode with WDS Dynamic Mesh and included to the mesh device/interface ?...

Thanks. I had a feeling that it may have been something like that. its not easy finding a place that you can set a test up in and you can really only turn the power down so much.

Re: OmniTIK Problems

The test environment spans some 5 or so meters and there was negligible interference in the area. the Omnitik has an integrated antenna so there should be no issues there with cable loss or other problems. signal levels ranges between -37 to -43 after turning the power down a little.
