When you say PTP setup you talking router or what?Why are you using WDS for a backhaul link? While WDS is very effective in certain situations its not designed to be used in long range links.
Have you tried a PTP setup instead and measured the results?
That would require a MT PPPoE Concentrator at all tower locations correct? If that was the best solution that i know that works well, then i wouldn't have a problem doing that...EoIP is to slow.
Can you terminate PPOE sessions on all your AP's (back to radius) and then route back to NOC?

After a few hours playing, today we launched a new tower and i setup the backhaul to the new tower without using WDS at all. I used routing, nstreme, and eoip that way pppoe traffic can pass through. The new backhaul can pass 25MB one way. I love this setup and its working great! Thanks for all the advice everyone. I'm going to try this setup on one of the existing towers and see if it improves my links.Hello
First, I think that you should try some different frequencies. Your noise floor is too high. I think, that your link will improve a lot if you find a spot where the noise is better than -100. Interference can kill any link.
Secondly - the various comments to your wds-mode: They may not know, that wds-mode is the only way to do bridging. I assume, that this is what you are doing
To make everyone's life easier, i started putting this setup the WIKI... http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Transpare ... %28EoIP%29mneumark,
may i have your setup configuration please?
i'm doing WDS now, and i wanted to try your setup.
I do know that going with non-wds helped my link out and made it 200% more stable. I now have a stable connection that hasn't dropped out once and the latency and overall link quality improved dramatically.Sweet tutorial
Did you achieve any significant result on your non WDS link with latency? I'm suffering of high and unstable ping times (you can check my thread here), and I was thinking of giving a non WDS link a try
Well the ping latency are average ~5ms. I really don't notice any high peaks, but once in a great while i will see a 15ms ping when the link is in higher usage. With my current setup, i'm lucky the noise floor is really clean and the data rate is 54MB solid. So the throughput on the motherboards i have in the backhauls get about 20-25MB's one way.Thank you very much! I'm definitely going to check the non-wds link then One last thing... is your ping stable? Has it any high peak? Also, what's your throughput?
