Re: Wireless link calculator updated

Nice tool - but I don't understand why the power goes up as the required speed goes down. Take 2 SXT sa 3km apart, and at 6Mbps power is 31dbm and for 150Mbp it's 27dbm. Is this the power setting needed at the radio? Not very helpful when we most of us are limited by country EIRP rules. Could we hav...

Re: v6.40rc [release candidate] is released!

Have emailed suppport but cannot set scan-list in /interface wireless to a bespoke value if you set it to eg bandb it actually sets it to bandb;bandb and then the radio stops working.
Can't set it in webfig either. Tools/telnet in webfig also broken.

Using ssh or winbox after setting with webfig

If I set everything up with webfig on a new box and then use winbox or ssh then it doesn't know I have already set it up and I get two choices: zap the entire config or set it to a default I don't want. How can I tell it to leave everything alone? There must be some flag set because winbox doesn't a...

rtsp and bridges with multipoint radios

I was trying to make part of my network resilient using L2 routing. I have point A connected to point B (a PtMP radio) and hence through several hops to Z. A is also connected to PtMP radio C and hence to Z by a different route. I was thinking that this would make a redundant route for A to Z. All c...

Multiple EOIP tunnels

I have a network of around 60 SXTs, and many of them used as routers are set up for convenience to have the 192.168.88.x IP range as their internal addresses. I manage all the SXTs via 192.168.2.X addresses, and winbox neighbour discovery works fine using L2. Now I have three further SXTs that are c...

How to use Quick Set with dual radio?

I have just got a SXT Lite5 ac and it's got a 2.4 radio as well as a 5. Not sure why the 2.4 is useful, but the QuickSet system seems to only setup 2.4, and I can't see how to make it select the other (main) radio.

Any suggestions as to what I'm missing?
