Wireless Registration Table only shows first 16 characters of radio-name

Mon Feb 19, 2018 5:54 pm

Hello and thank you for taking the time,

I've got a BaseBox5 running v6.41.1 with 22 clients. Their radio-names vary in length based on client however on the AP each registration's radio-name is only showing 16 characters and cuts the rest of the string off. I have other mipsbe architecture type boards running v6.41.1 that do not have this problem and show 25+ characters for radio-names in the registration table. Anyone have any idea what may be causing this cut-off?

Thanks,

If you are talking about terminal then terminal size can influence how wide are columns.

Adjust the column size in registration table window.

network devices names are meant to be brief

networking devices are not the place to storage all you client information use ms-excel or a software to do that

Radio names are meant to store whatever we want. Let's not discuss "what to store in radio-names" but instead discuss what may be causing RouterOS to not display this information.

I have hundreds of AP's that display "long" CPE names properly, we use that information to auto-script many different functions. As stated before, all other routers are capable of displaying 25+ characters. Any insight on why it's not being displayed properly would be very much appreciated. I'm not looking for "tips" on what to store in the radio-name.

FYI - Here's an example of what the CPE Radio Name is set to:
^BCarpenter - RB911-23@V23

Thanks!

There is a difference when using 802.11 or nv2 wireless protocol. nv2 allows a longer radio name
