setting of HT data in v.6.15 and higher?

Mon Jul 21, 2014 2:47 pm

Can anybody tell me how to set settings that in winbox are found under the "HT" tab but now in telnet?
I am making a script to set antennas in preparation mode for my networks, but can't find a script command that enable both (in future "three") chains enabled....

ros code

/interface wireless
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] ht-rxchains=0,1 ht-txchains=0,1
Doesn't work. But you gave me a kick in the right direction..

the code for 6.15 is;
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] tx-chains=0,1 rx-chains=0,1
I agree, the script language changes all the time..... :(

Just to add to this, at rOS 6.17 some RouterBOARDs like the 912UAG-2HPnD found in the BaseBox2 use
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] tx-chain=0,1 rx-chains=0,1
where as older RouterBOARDs like the 751U-2HnD, SXT G-2HnD, Metal 2SHPn still use
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] ht-txchains=0,1 ht-rxchains=0,1
of course, I can't even add a filter by RouterBOARD model to my script because one sees rx-chains as syntactically incorrect while the others see ht-rxchains as incorrect and terminate the script!

Have you tested if the syntax change is related to having wireless-fp package?
As in, when wireless-fp package is active, you get new syntax, when wirless-fp is inactive, you get old syntax?

Ok, just found another one:
/interface wireless
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ]  tdma-period-size=auto
creates an error in a groove where it is accepted by an SXT without any problems. Both are already running 6.15 so both have fx package installed and enabled.

For the groove I have to erase the "tdma-period-size=auto" part that actually was in use in my previous script that I use for tenths of all kinds of boards from 5.xx to 6.xxx

If both have the wireless-fp package installed and enabled... at that point, just make an official support ticket I would say :)

HT- prefix is 802.11n specific
WHT- prefix is 802.ac specific

so neither is used since chains cannot be configured separately.

it should be tx-chains and rx-chains.


not sure why tdma-period-size does not work as that was not changed.

Its not such a big thing, you can omit the 'tdma-period' part and it works for both.

Its part of a script we use to set new antennas in a new default config. Basically the script is an "exp" from a basically configured unit, done under 6.14 or so. When I exp same script now from a 6.17 unit the 'tdma-period' part doesn't come up in the export any more.... so obviously something changed somewhere .....

Anyway, you've seen it and are aware. So no need to send a supout.rif... :D

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but just got pretty confused.

Have just configured about 30 rb912uag-2hpnd (with 5GHz card in mini-pcie) and 20 rb912uag-5hpnd (with 2.4GHz card in mini-pcie) , with the exact same config.

For the first 30, I first pasted my config and then upgraded to 6.27. "The import had tx-chains=0,1" and "rx-chains=0,1".
Working like a charm

For the last 20, i did the other way around. First upgraded then pasted config. For all boards EXEPT ONE, ht-rxchains and ht-txchains had to be used. The odd one demanded "old" tx- and rx-. I'm 100% sure that it already was upgraded to 6.27.

Almost ALL boards had 6.18 on delivery, a few had 6.16, 6.19 and 6.20.
I ran wireless-fp on all boards, but also that was activated sometimes before and sometimes after pasting config.

So the question...
Is it really the RouterOS version that changes this (in that case the behavior above is really strange). Or is it something else, like hardware or enabled packets?
