did you follow what I suggested above?
search the forum for hw-retries
There are no problems with wireless in newer versions, but on some links, settings need adjustment.
Hardware retries has nothing to do with it.! 4.x + on most links that were running 3.30 flawlessly got to hell.! Its like one installed a completly different brand of board and radio.. The tx/rx levels go crazy when with heavy traffic.. When the link is idle the numbers are like with 3.30, so one thinks great! same link as before.. But no..! Once there is traffic in a matter of a couple seconds, the link tx/rx quality goes south and disconnects... You can try any possible setting, and this wont improve. On links were 4.x is good, well great! You have a good link, but most my links that where absolutely perfect no matter the weather, 4.x+ gives me the impression as using very first beta test wireless package MT has ever made who knows how many years ago.. lol
HW retries to me seems only to be usefull when u have a good 4.x link with good tx/rx under load but occasionally disconnects for no obvious reason with nstreme. This is a totally different issue.! Everthing goes wild like the far west..
ANyways, like others, I give up on issues like this. I just stick with 3.30. Just sux when u want to use features in 4.x+ but cant cause your stuck at 3.30.
Begs to wonder if you have ever setup a link using 4.x+ and the link was just not workable due to tx/rx issues and you concluded you cant make the link.. Probably would have been perfect in 3.30.!!
I love MT and have been using 100% for the past 4 and a half years in my networks. Been reluctant to try Ubiquiti stuff in my network, but damn it, it just seems that they work... Grrrr am I going to be forced to goto the other side? I love the fexability I get with my AP's using MT gear, I can modify the setup easily by adding radios antennas etc and I have no problem paying quite abit more money on SU's and AP's using MT compared to Ubiquiti. The darn reality is that I will literally be forced to start using Ubiquiti as the demand for higher bandwidth increases and the time I have to test and test and test again with MT stuff to get the same plug and play results in a matter of mins with Ubiquiti is catching up to me when were talking about 45Mbs +
Mt keeps releasing newer releases with great new features, but they just dont work plug and play in the real world for higher bandwidth.. Its like there wasting there time.. Get the older stuff to work 100% no hassle, then bring the new stuff.. I mean christ, Ubiquiti products to me, seem based on MT firmware of some sort.. Gives me the impression they have a larger smarter bunch over there..
I cant believe that I probably have 150K of MT gear in the field since 4 yrs and a half. Im against it, but looks like the next fours years worth of 150k is going to the other guys.
I wish MT had there stuff together, im almost depressed on the subject lol
