I'm testing out RBMetal9HPn for wireless data links in a theatre environment. Massive overkill for range, but they have been working very well and it's really hard to find high throughput data links outside of 2.4/5ghz range.
I have turned down the Tx power because +27dBm is ridiculous when i'm trying for a few tens of metres max. They've been running at 3dBm with 5dBi omni antennae.
This afternoon I had been testing link throughput and stability, and as I was walking between two computers to set up a throughput test, the unit functioning as AP has died apparently entirely.
No LEDs initially- after cooling it to room temperature (it was warm, but not super hot as they have been occasionally) the user LED blinks repeatedly when connected to power, but it doesn't respond to the reset button or make any beeps. Seems like the bootloader isn't even working properly.
Any ideas where to even start with this? I'm new to Mikrotik hardware and hardcore networking in general but haven't had any trouble with them before this.
