I have only problems. The same hardware works If I downgrade instantly to 2.8. No excuses about cables,signal, noise or whatever.

We need to know if there is any kind of fix about this, as I need the features of 2.9. If I have to use 2.8 then a linux box it's a better solution for me.

Yes, but why? They didn't mention that Prism cards are not supported any more. They release a stable version 2.9 that is supposed to be better than 2.8. I know lot of people disappointed by the new version with the wireless problems.

Finally there is no announcment or something about this problem and what is going to happen with Prism cards. We need to know if there will be any kind of fix as soon as possible. Or at least please change back to previous drivers/firmare whatever for Prism cards.

prism & 2.9

Wed Aug 31, 2005 4:19 pm

For me the same problems.

many clients disconnects after 10 to 20 seconds, Mikrotik says it becomes trough bad signals but that´s not the reason I believe.

MT response

Hello,

Just tested and 11 clients are online already more than 1h.

We are also seeing the same thing.

If we disable the wireless card, and then re-enable it, it is good for a couple of days. I am going to try swaping the prism for a cm9, and see what I get.
Not a signal issue, this is a small neighborhood with less than 15 clients, and most of them with -66 - -70 signal.

The same answer... This could be true if you first installed the router. But in 2.8 it's working!!! So these transmit errors are caused by 2.9 not by bad signal/noise levels.

I have clients connected with 2.9rc5 using a Prism based wifi card and have users with 49+hrs of uptime.

Although the AP's with 2.9rcX on them right now have a light user load they seem to be working fine (<20 users). We plan on upgrading the rest of our network to 2.9 once we find the time to schedule the maintainance. Most of our AP's are running atheros based cards because more features are supported within RouterOS.

Just telling you what I see... matter of fact this morning,
in order to get a new client associated, I had to cycle the radio card.

RB532AP with a prism 200mw.. 2.9 release not RC

We have 40 clients running on senao 200 mw prism cards with the latest prism software on 2.8.28 works fine. Upgraded to 2.9.1 and lost 50% of the clients, downgraded back to 2.8.28 and working fine again.
