Mikrotik Metal 2.4 wihtout wireless

Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:22 am

I have metal mikrotik 2.4. It stops transmitting the wireless when it wants. No more setting to change. I've tried them all and the problem continues.
The SSID of the Metal mikrotik 2.4 disappears in a site survey.
Clients lose the connection in hotspot and have to restart the metal 2.4.
Sometimes I can restart remote, but others I have to go there and cut the power. I use it on battery because I was thinking that the original source was faulty.

I've tried all settings. I reduced the power, I used default power, I changed ack, I left only B mode B / G mode and B / G / N

It is one day, two, three or more days good. But at other times it hangs two or three times a day.

It stops transmitting the wireless when ithe wants. No more setting to change. I've tried them all and the problem continues.

Through experience I have with other RBs mikrotik I can say that I am not doing anything wrong. The conclusion that I have is that it has a design defect or batch production ou firwmare problem.

I saw that in registration Metal 2.4 clients do not disconnect.
But they will disconnecting in the hotspot.

Anyone else have encountered this kind of problem?

I have other metal 2.4 with this same version. Also the same happens, but not as often.

Going to some new revision software is going to introduce you different set of issues, better go for the latest one of the same series - v5.25 and then up it from that, if needed.

Hello, same happened to me, I bought 4 of these APs, 2 of them had the same problem, WIFI were unstable, it kinda worked for a while after a reboot, but still unstable, I have tried everything, I reached support, after several mails and weeks, they ask me to send them to RMA, dont waste your time, these devices are kinda defective (at least 2 of 4 on my case=50%), return them!

while (true) do={:local a [/in wi reg get number=0 last-activity]; :local b {[:pick $a +4]}; :if (b>=2) do={[/system reboot];};}
this script is the solution for wireless down.
run with sheduler every 2-3 minutes

my metal burn out today(( speed was 40 mbps and board work with it 5-10 mins. after - all leads is off. metal newer come back again. RIP (
for good work of this board you must limit summary bandwidth to 5 mbps for all wireless clients (not for each).

script might be not work sometimes. nobody dnot know why.

i used this version of script ( without while cycle)
local a [/in wi reg get number=0 last-activity]; :local b {[:pick $a +4]}; :if (b>=2) do={[/system reboot;];}
it works for me.

I agree that running a script to monitor the Wireless Interface is a bandaid solution. However, why do these units fail? Mikrotik needs to address this issue. It's not acceptable to have products that need bandaids to make them work.

I have installed these units at 100' on towers and been forced to drive to location and repower them because the units wireless stopped and the monitoring scripts (bandaids) have jammed the unit to the point where I could not access them.

The specs and design of these units is amazing and when they are running correctly they are great units, but they need to be made stable in order to be useable.

If your car suddendly stopped running on the highway and you had to stop the car, turn the key off and then back on again in order to continue your trip, would you not expect the manufacturer to fix the car?

We have THE SAME PROBLEM with MikroTik Metal-2Hn.
Groove A (level4) with the same configuration and in the same place - works good.
What is wrong with that Metal-2Hn?!

I've got the wireless client count checking script mentioned in one of the metal2.4 threads running so we at least do not have long periods with no traffic, the reboots are quick. Theres 2 of those type reboots in the log below.

But as you can see there are two other reboot types that occur.... kernel issues, and i guess just watchdog reboots are the "without proper shutdown" ones.

we've tried it all, we can't find any relief. we are currently on 6.9 but we've seend this on every 5.x and 6.x version we've tried.

The most frustrating thing is that there is no information on what is actually going wrong, nothing in the logs, nothing in autosupout.rif etc. If someone were to hackinto the linux command prompt behind RouterOS on the devices you might be able to log some information on what is happening before the reboot occurs. You would think Mikrotik has done this already and has some information to report

The same thing is occuring with a second Metal2.4 plus a SXT 2.4Ghz running as a sector.
We have a RB450 running on the same power source, aggregating the ethernet from those 3 aps, and it never reboots or hangs.

It's a reboot party on our tower.

So, what is the MikroTik team official respond at this topic?
The fact is: MikroTik Metal 2,4GHz working as AP - disconnects radio clients.
The MikroTik Groove 2,4Ghz at he same place with the same config - working good.
Conclusion: all MikroTik Metal 2,4GHz have hardware problem that is VERY frustrating and makes it unusable as Access Point!

In addition to the reboot log I posted above, I'm noticing that the unit will set itself to the 250Mhz cpu speed setting. I assume it' sdoing this because of a failed boot or something simliar during a kernel failure/reboot and stepping down the freq.

I dont' know that i would have caught it except with RANcID runing each hour to pull the config and diff it against the previous retrieval. it shows up every few days like this:
  set enabled=yes mode=unicast primary-ntp=10.1.1.10 secondary-ntp=10.1.1.110
+ /system routerboard settings
+ set cpu-frequency=250MHz
  /system scheduler

I too had this problem with the 2.4GHz Metals stopping transmitting. I am told v6.10 has a fix in it for this problem. Try it out.

i tried it a few days ago as you suggested. 2 Metal2.4s and an SXT, things are definitely improved to just under 1 reboot per day... better than it was but not quite what I'd like to see. I still see the 250Mhz CPU setting kicking in/out via my RANCID config backup change notifications

it seems now the main reason for reboots is the wireless client count reboot script.
