Wich Wireless package to use, -fp or cm2?

Tue Jul 28, 2015 3:25 pm

Hi,

I was just wondering if community has any input on wich package to use now that CM2 has become "standard wireless package" as of ROS 6.30?

I do currently NOT use CapsMAN, but I have been testing out the fp wireless package anyway to see if it works better in some areas and on some links with mixed results. Sometimes links and APs seem more stable, then again other places they got more unstable using -FP.

And I recon IF i would start using Capsman at this point, I would go for Capsman v2 anyway since it now practically is "built in".


So I guess what I am really asking is if there is ANY advantage/reason to keep using -FP package for anything (excluding Capsman v1 ability ofcourse) in terms of wireless capabilitys?!


If there arent any special advantages to using -FP package, I will probably standarize all my wireless devices on -CM2 for the future and revert all current -FP sites.

So I am open for some input and advices on the matter! :)

Since CM2 package is also for new, unannounced products, which have new chipsets, any optimisations and fine-tuning goes into CM2. This also affects older chips, so in general CM2 should be used if possible.

Come to our MUM events, keep following Newsletters. There is no specific new product. We keep making new products all the time.

hAP, hEX, Dynadish - they are all new products that were recently introduced.

Hello Folks!

I tested this new package on SXT AC <--> SXT N.
Before I got link settle to 300/300 after I got 60/60 as max.
Throughput become less than before, will have it sit like that for a day and see what happens, if not better I will switch back again.
We did not implement it at any other place in our network yet due to this,

Hmmm, this doesnt sound too good!

Did you change nothing in config other then swicth packet when you changed to CM2-package?

Is it still the same now after some days?

Exactly same config as before.

However, we did move to cm2 package all over our network now, no visible issues except this link that was supposed to be a test for higher ptmp networks thant our rock solid 54Mbit/s that has been used for years.

Did you know that in RouterOS v6.15 nv2 latency has been improved dramatically. Read more here:
http://download2.mikrotik.com/news/mikr ... UN2014.pdf

So please upgrade and enable Wireless-FP package to see the difference
cm2 also has some improvements for newer 802.11ac and other improvements.
fp is the new legacy package
So if I understand correctly, in order to get all NV2 improvements I need to upgrade my whole network to -cm2? The ordinary wireless package will never be updated and can be considered obsolete?
