WDS problem - annoying disconnecting

Thu Jun 14, 2007 5:15 pm

Since I've moved from AP-Station to WDS configuration all my wireless links started to disconnect for a short period of time. This happens once, twice a day, lasts one ore two minutes and it's very annoing.
It can't be link quality problem because before the change everything was OK.
The logs are as follows:

<mac>@wlan1 disconnected, no beacons
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
.... 10 or more times and finally
<mac>@wlan1 connected, is AP, wants WDS

Is it WDS problem? And why do I get "data from unknown device" message if all stations are in Access Lists?

It seems a lot of people are seeing the same problem here. We notice it as well. We have an open ticket with Mikrotik about it but no results so far. They had us turn on RSTP but that hasn't helped.

How are you dealing with this? Have you returned to a previous version of Mikrotik? This is killing my entire Network :(

Hi Ivaring,
I managed to fix it and I'm not sure what did it. Maybe 2.9.44???
I'm running RSTP, before I was having 5 to 6 disconnects a day and now maybe 2 a week :)
The logs are exactly as the poster says.

Thanks,

I'm saying that after I upgraded to 2.9.44 my problems went away.
Before I was having many disconnects a day, with logs such as:
<mac>@wlan1 disconnected, no beacons
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
data from unknown device <mac>, sent deauth
.... 10 or more times and finally
<mac>@wlan1 connected, is AP, wants WDS
Now I have maybe 02 disconnects a week.
I'm also saying that I'm not sure what might have fixed it, maybe it was the upgrade!
See changelog http://www.mikrotik.com/download/CHANGELOG_full

What language do you speak? I'm polyglot :)

Oh, I understand now, could be software version, I don't know. Maybe because defaults values on several parameters... maybe.

Talking about language, hablo castellano, parlo italiano and I speak english (why did u want 2 know?).

Regards.
