Re: RB4011: wlan1 disabling itself

Wed May 15, 2019 6:19 pm

I received my RB4011 last friday. Very happy with the design of the device. I use it as a replacement for my RB2011 which has been running perfectly for about 5 years.

I backupped the running config of the RB2011, and selectively imported this script to the RB4011. Everything seemed to be running fine, but after 24 hours, the 5GHz network disappeared. I rebooted the device, and it was available again. Last night, again after 24 hours, the network disappeared again.

The wlan1 device is enabled, but when I open it, it says 'not running'. Also, under status it shows the date the link went down last, but it seems it never came back up.
I have the RB4011 WiFi version and don't see this issue. Did you/are you able to capture a supout <10s after the radio goes down?

I sent it to the support many times already. And they are silent, or talk nonsense. Shitty wifi on the router.

This issue is still being investigated by our development team. Unfortunately, this is taking longer than expected because it is not easily repeated. Any additional information regarding to "disappearance" of the 5Ghz wireless interface and how to replicate it would be appreciated and could fasten the process of resolving this matter.

Good afternoon Rudolfs, at least some news. 👍🏻
I sent you a new suppot file - May 15th.

Rudolfs: can you share some sneak peek on the progress? Is the reason for such behavior known and if not can we maybe help somehow?

In my case the 5Ghz doesn't disappears (it is named like the 2Ghz band), but the device doesn't connect after a few hours running.

Entering in WinBox, the 5Ghz appears as "Not running" until rebooted.

Re: RB4011: wlan1 disabling itself

Mon May 27, 2019 7:41 am

I ran a RB4011 at home as a wireless access point only, for about a month.

While it suffered from the same... "Can't go faster than about 300M on speed tests..." (This has been the case with every Mikrotik Wireless I have tried.)

I can't think of a time when the 5G was not accepting clients.

I set the 5 GHZ Channel to 20/40/80Mhz Ceee and frequency 5180. This worked consistently and carried an average of 20 clients at a time. I had as many as 50 on the unit when we had guests over.

I have the same settings on a cAP AC right now and it performs exactly the same.

I have the same problem.
Some time the 5Ghz wifi stop working.
I tried disable and enable again but is stack in initializing and not running.
Tools like "scan" and "freq. usage" dose not return any result (with 2.4GHz work perfect).
The signal of 5GHz is disappeared from any devices and none of them can connect (only in 2.4GHz).
I believe with reboot, that work for some time and next i will have problem again.
But... in a router the reboot isn't so easy.

I had many strange problem lately with the unit, but the wifi was the perfect result and working fine all the time. 2.4g and 5g have 2 different ssid name. txpower manual. no country set.
20/40/80Mhz Ceee, detect fine 5g 433mbps. Putting 160mhz is for very new device, there's not much that work with the 160 freq and especially no phone and neither the iphone and other istuff.
Also, with the higher band.. wasn't it supposed to cut the signal and modulate the power when no packet are needed instead of having all time full power.. ? Using eth cable or the sfp will fix all the problem if it's a fix unit or so and you need full all the time.

For the other issues, i did another netinstall, and then it pop up fine. it show rb 6.43.3 firm and upgraded 6.44.3 , ipv4 fasttrack by default at on. 24v around 39degC

No wireless settings combination works for me either - no matter what the card freezes after some hours where the only way to fix it is to reboot.

Mikrotik can route... Much Like a Sony TV looks incredible.

But a Sony speaker is a piece of $h!+.

/interface wireless monitor wlan1 show the interface is running, and I see the noise floor varying:
status: running-ap
channel: 5745/20-Ceee/ac
wireless-protocol: 802.11
noise-floor: -104dBm
overall-tx-ccq: 100%
registered-clients: 1
authenticated-clients: 1
wmm-enabled: yes
notify-external-fdb: no
The registration table shows 1 client connected (which isn't), however there are no SSID broadcasts occurring. The AP got into this state after a prolonged period of co-channel interference. It is highly likely this is a Qualcomm proprietary qca9984 driver bug caused by missing state update (eg an unlock) on an error path.

do you have ipv6 on rb4011?
No, only ipv4. I disabled ipv6 in packages section.
generally strange behavior RB4011, I already do not understand anything. Support MT keeps complete silence.
I wrote to MT too...Waiting for reply..
Well how are you? Anything useful answered you?

i'd read your post in the morning, did you delete it yourself?
Hello, TimurA

I sended supout to mikrotik, they answered that they did not see any problems with 5ghz.
More interesting, hap ac2 have same problem, 5ghz randomly disappearing :)

Hmmm, i dont deleted any post..

Do you have any news/solutions for this problem?
6.45 beta54 did not help for me.

Now i have two not working properly devices, hap ac2 and rb4011 :))))

I have tv box xiaomi mi box mini, when i watch iptv (5GHz) on it, 5GHz on rb4011 and hap ac2 randomly disappears...
If i turn off mi box, 5Ghz works fine!

Yes, not fully working RB4011 devices at 5ghz and hap ac2 on qca9984 chips.

Why did they let them out ?, it's not at all clear! only trust undermined.

I no longer believe that they will solve this problem at all in the next 1 year.

We halt purchasing RB4011 with wireless. My personal one now has hAP AC next to it for 5Ghz.

MT: really, seriously, this is a joke. The device is mostly punched as a replacement for RB2011/3011 which packs more ports than hAP AC. Having non-functional 5Ghz makes is literally useless.

RB4011 Jaś R11e, but it’s responsible for handling 2.4Ghz. The 5Ghz is handled by a built-in QCA9984.

p.s. just coming back from emergency replacement of post-thunderstorm of 2x RB4011 - switched to hAP ac + switch at one location ;p

That’s expected - there’s no mention of this in the release notes. I think they’re still debugging the issue.

yes, in 6.45.1 solve mac address, 5ghz down again and again.

ps
I take off RB4011, and put up for sale. The problem with 5ghz will not be solved as I understand it.

First Mikrotik device I bought and definitely the last one. My 5ghz wlan works max for one day. Then It disappears. Latest stable firmware. I should've bought Ubiquiti instead. Wireless device with unstable wifi like the RB4011 one is unacceptable.

First Mikrotik device I bought and definitely the last one. My 5ghz wlan works max for one day. Then It disappears. Latest stable firmware. I should've bought Ubiquiti instead. Wireless device with unstable wifi like the RB4011 one is unacceptable.
you're right. I bought it in February and at the same time I opened the ticket. There is no solution to this day.

Yesterday I bought a cAP ac and had the same problem as the 4011 on 5GHz. After set-up he began to emit normally at 5GHz and after ~ 5 'ceased to operate the particular band. At this time, both cAP ac and 4011 have the 5GHz band stuck in enable / disable running / slave / initializing. The scan / freq options. usage does not work.

Yes, you right! I also wanted to buy ubiquiti, but mikrotiks fanboys convinced me :(
These are my first two devices from mikrotik, rb4011 and hap ac2, and both do not work properly...
Mikrotik can not solve the problem for almost a half of the year and I do not think that they will solve it.
And I am lucky that I use these devices for home. I wanted to build a enterprie project on mikrotiks devices.
But no more mikrotik in my life...I'm also trying to sell them out and buy ubiquiti.

I miss the good old days when Mikrotik Routed...
And Ubnt did wireless...

Have you try to first install fresh with netinstall 6.44.3, and then only used the: quick set and just put a password and a name ? No vpn, no port blocking.. no nothing. I'm on 20-40-80ceee , freq/chan : auto, no country set. ap-bridge and i get full speed and no disconnect at all. ssid always present.
And do you get disconnect when you are under 15feet ?
It could be extra setting you put/change.
If you want a constant link, perhaps go with eth cable, as the AC protocol is not made, intended to be transmitting 100% power all the time and keep the link open all time.

The ac is perfectly stable on other devices. We have plenty of hAP ac's and wAPs and there are no complains. Seems like only QCA9984-based devices are problematic.
The issue is not with disconnections but with the SSID being gone. From what I've seen in the lab as well as from the feedback of other people the issue is only present when nothing is connected to the 5Ghz AP for too long.

did you read it, from DanielJB?
Do you understand that the device does not work?
For you already and debug made.
I have 5ghz falling from any sneeze!
I have seen this for the first time in a couple of months with an RB4011-WiFi.

/interface wireless monitor wlan1 show the interface is running, and I see the noise floor varying:
status: running-ap
channel: 5745/20-Ceee/ac
wireless-protocol: 802.11
noise-floor: -104dBm
overall-tx-ccq: 100%
registered-clients: 1
authenticated-clients: 1
wmm-enabled: yes
notify-external-fdb: no
The registration table shows 1 client connected (which isn't), however there are no SSID broadcasts occurring. The AP got into this state after a prolonged period of co-channel interference. It is highly likely this is a Qualcomm proprietary qca9984 driver bug caused by missing state update (eg an unlock) on an error path.

Multicast
the game with the multicast settings on the wlan interface does not give any result either. The problem is deeper .... it is enough to read how solved problems on the QCA9984 chip on OpenWRT in 2017-2018 year

I found a way to make at least this piece of shit work.
We do the following: in the ACL for 5ghz, we write the rule limiting connection -120 ..-65 (or -67).
5GHz is falling due to the fact that the client starts to reconnect frequently.

Mikrotik! solve this problem already, how much can you analyze?

5GHz is falling due to the fact that the client starts to reconnect frequently.
So why it fails when there's no clients at all? After a long period of idle?

My observations show that rts/cts disabling may help. Still investigating.

I upgraded to 6.45.1 and 5ghz is running and visible for 3 days. It lasts only for 1 day before. Is the issue fixed? Can someone confirm?
