Just thought I'd give a heads up on my recent discovery on a tower using SR2's.
Ubiquity networks say that the power setting in Mikrotik has an offset of 10dB's according to the data sheets on their website.
Faithfully following this, I set a tower's output to 13dBm, thinking I'd be running it at 200mW. We have been having a lot of problems with a particular brand of CPE, which uses (I think) Engenius components where they continually disassociate.
With a technician doing a site survey at a client, we found the following -
MT v2.9.27Tx power set at:
13dBm, client signal 15%
23dBm, client signal 30%
default, client signal 35%
When I set it to default, the CPE's reassociating problem stopped.
The above results lead me to believe that the offset table is not correct - anybody else seen anything similar?
