Avoid interferences by automatic changing frequency

Mon Apr 23, 2007 11:53 pm

Hi all
Why Mikrotik products don't support automatic changing frequecy to avoid interferences???
Other products have this fature, why not Mikrotik?

Yelkoury,

Mikrotik does support automatic changing frequecy... Checkout radar-detect http://www.mikrotik.com/testdocs/ros/2. ... reless.php

Thx for this responce
But once a ferequency has been choosen, and one day an other equipement has been used in the same frequency, can the MK router detect this interfernce and change frequency??
I suppose that MK don't scan frequencies all the time, so how can it detect and avoid interferencies???
Thx

Yelkoury,

I haven't used the feature myself yet, but my understanding is it will automatically select the best channel. So if there is another channel at a different time that becomes cleaner it should automatically change to that.

*I'm not 100% positive about this one...*

im curious too, ive read the manual and some form posts,

but can someone post some real world results of using radar detect on a serious p2p link?

tks

Well, don't know how serious :) we are. But we do "bounce" the interface twice daily to give a look for a better channel. I've then looked at a scan after and ROS seems to make the best choice.

Let us suppose that I use my MT router in indoor on channel 1 (2412), one day a neighbor install a new access point in the same channel, will my router be able to detect this interference and change frequency automatically?
if yes who can it do that??
Is mikrotik scans channels all the time (i think that's impossible)

DFS should re-scan when a radar-like (pulsing) signal is detected, or when noise level rises above a certain level.
