We setup a new backup backhaul on Saturday evening, all went well and we get a stable 5mbps/5mbps with nstream enabled.
12db Waveguide Omni
15.6km Clear LOS Clear Fresnel
When we setup the link the other night the stats were similar to the above, with nstream on we had no issues doing 5mbps/5mbps on the link. Come Sunday morning the link was in and out like a yoyo complaining about Extensive data loss.
We disabled Nstream and link was semi-stable again but only getting 2mbps/2mbps as soon as we enable nstream the link drops out with the same error, I enabled wireless debug in logging and can see nothing too much out of the norm.
We know the Waveguide omni is a slow point in the link and will be upgrading it to a directional antenna this week but need to get these issues sorted first as it was stable for a few hours after install then went down hill form there.
We have tried different channels but no improvment, we have tried to try 10mhz & 5mhz channels but for some reason the xr5 cannot find these :S I have verified the R52N is infact broadcasting on the correct channels at 5mhz and 10mhz but the Rb411 & xr5 cannot see these so this is another mystery.
Anything you think we could be doing wrong that could be causing this would be greatly appreciated.
