We tested TDMA freebsd Sam Lefler MAC 802.11a implementation .at the simular platform ( Alix, CM9) . It also has poor throughput at small packet size ( but much better then standard 802,11a) and it is may be improved by using more powerfull h/w. Sorry freebsd8 tdma Sam 802.11a

Thanks for the comments Butch, this has been a busy on-call weekend with the bandwidth manager dropping twice (It actually shut the power off on the server) and several Mikrotik towers refusing to come back up until rebooted. To try to battle this I went to the WIKI for Mikrotik and entered

I'm not sure your assessment of UBNT not recommending to use airmax on PTP as a general statement hold true. It is unlikely that they would have built in a specific PTP noack mode into airmax configuration if it was their suggestion not to use it. I use it on lots of links and it works very

I use No Ack only on links longer than 5 miles. I had problems with No Ack at shorter distances. But I put AirMax on it all, not just because it's TDMA but because it will screw with those trying to hack into it. Bob- From: wireless-boun...@wispa.org

My weekend has been profitable from local hotels not believing me that Time Warner is having an issue and they all insisting that I make a service call to tell them just that but in person. Total take from a walk in, test and walk out. Nearly $700 bucks. Weekend rate, $95 bucks per hour.
