I recently upgraded ROS on a couple of sites (hotels) running RB433 hotspots
The upgrade went from 6.27 to 6.41.3
On one of the sites, running an RB433AH hotspot with a few RB912 access
points, a strange situation has presented itself.
The RB912 access points are present on the upper floors, and the RB433AH is
positioned on the ground floor (lobby)
Internet access from the ground floor doesn't work anymore i.e. direct connections
to the RB433AH can't authenticate or browse the web.
When connecting directly through the RB433AH the user's browsers receive
the following error messages :
"Secure Connection Failed" (Firefox)
"Cannot connect securely to this page" (Chrome)
Furthermore the hotspot login page is not displayed correctly : ascii characters, missing
logo, ...When a user enters the login and password his credentials are refused with the
obtained the same errors
The other site (RB433GL) which is fine has practically the same config, and the same login.html
Next I moved up a floor in the hotel and attempted the same tests; here the logon page
displayed properly and authenticated me properly. The Internet browsing worked fine too.
Tried again on the fourth floor : same positive results.
I can therefore conclude that the issue is with the RB433AH itself. But how can that be ?
Since the RB in the upper floors are all connected to the hotspot router - shouldn't they
also be impacted by the same phenomena ? Weird huh ?
Any ideas ?
