Running 2.8.26 on an RB230 with two NL2511CD-Ext2 (802.11b Prism 200mW) and an RB44 (4 Port Ethernet Card /w auto MDI/X).
One radio (in slot A) disables itself after running for awhile.
Initially it did so after 10 mintues to an hour. After switching the PCMCIA radios in slots A and B, everything worked for about a week. At this point the radio in slot A disabled itself. In my mind, this rules out the radio as the problem as it seems to be slot specific.
Both radios have firmware 1.1.1/1.7.4.
Could this be caused by static from the antennas? The cables for both cards pass though grounded lightning arrestors about 4 feet after the pigtail, while still inside the building, before continuing on the antennas outdoors.
Any other ideas?
I'm probably going to try switching the RB230 board out this evening for another.
