Re: [WISPA] Preferred RADIUS Setup

But as most of the stuff on RouterOS, it only does what it does.  It 
isn't a generic RADIUS server as far as I know.

Re: [WISPA] Wireless Digest, Vol 61, Issue 2

2017-02-02 Thread Scott Reed
WISPA has at least 7 hardware brand  specific lists.  In addition the 
general lists have folks from many backgrounds and network topological 
that are most willing to answer questions.


There are also several general topic lists such as IPv6, Fiber, TVWS, etc.

Some of the lists are member only.  The best way to find them is to 
login to WISPA.org and then manage your account.  One of the choices is 
mail lists.


Many of the vendor also run a maillist or forum. Check the vendor sites 
to see how to sign up for them.


If you ask a question here that might have more answers on another list, 
someone will usually refer you to the other list.

I have a potential client that currently has a /27 with his current provider,

We only have a /21 worth of space from ARIN.

Right now they use an old set of perl scripts that receive NetFlow data

We are still OK to use NetFlow, just need to capture and display it better.

Looking for recommendations for NetFlow capture and display software.  
What do you know of that works?

Also, we have looked at NTOP, but the user interface is way too much for

Re: [WISPA] Switching out an omni

2014-07-10 Thread Scott Reed
If you are leaving the SSIDs the same, you will probably want to put 
minimum signal levels in the new APs so CPEs don't jump around if they 
are on the edge.
We have well over 100 MT APs and I have never setup WDS.  Not really 
sure what it would do for us.
When we do 3 RB433s we usually put all 3 port 1 into a switch and then 
use ports 2 and 3 to do cross connects between the boards that if an 
interface goes down, the AP still runs.  OSPF handles getting stuff out 
the correct port.

cards in them.  What is the preferred way to set those up?  If 
possible, we would like to keep the same ESSID as the old AP and have 
them the same so that the mixed clients will automatically connect 
without a truck roll.  Is this possible?  WDS the recommended way? 
Better way to do it? Each area serviced by an access point is a

[WISPA] Cable for sale

2014-05-09 Thread Scott Reed
I have the following lengths of LMR equivalent cable for sale.  It is 
all from Shireen so it is RFC400 or RFC600.
The used 400 was installed in water towers and so only on end has been 
in the weather. Most of it has N-Male and
N-Female Bulkhead connectors.
The 600 is all new, end of spool tails, no connectors.

[WISPA] IPPlan fix

2014-03-13 Thread Scott Reed
If anyone is using the beta version of IPPlan that handles IPv6 
addresses, I have a minor fix for it.
The displaysubnet routine miscalculates the percent utilization of 
subnets and then e-mails the administrator that the subnet is low on 
space long before it should.
If you would like the file as I have updated it, hit me offlist and I 
can send it to you.

Re: [WISPA] IP managment software

IPPlan will do reverse DNS creation for you as long as you have the 
domains correctly defined.
The export and XML template make something that can be copied to your 
BIND data directory.  Just have cron restart BIND every night or 
whatever and it will always be the same as IPPlan.


I haven't used them, but IPPlan also has facilities to generate 
registrar related stuff. That may be what you are looking for.


I am not an IPPlan expert, but if you need some offlist help, feel free 
to e-mail be directly.

We're close to needing to request more IPs from ARIN, which requires

Is there anything out there better than IP Plan, preferably that can

Re: [WISPA] outdoor shielded cable for installs in a box

2014-01-24 Thread Scott Reed
This stuff is spooled because it is too fat and stiff to stuff into the 
box and think it will come out nicely.  I have fewer snags, etc., with 
the spooled wire than the other boxes we use.

 dear all

 lately we are having some strange issues with some airgrids. We see that:

 1) the signal on some radios is droppiing around 10dbi
 2) it works in one direction but not the other (eg. tx=ok but rx not
 working)

 Is that happening to you too?

Dealing with ARIN is fairly easy and they have some very helpful

Kind of late in the game for this question, but has anyone been able

upstream provider, and where I live there are not a lot of other 
choices for providers. Honestly, we may have been lulled into thinking 
that we were to small to get our own space, or we needed to be 
multi-homed.
I have read on the website that we could fairly easily qualify, as far 
as what is currently percentage wise utilized. I need to start 
shifting all our networks to be fully routed and would be nice to have 
our own space. Our provider is fairly big in the upper plains, however 
things may change were we need to shift, or maybe get a second provider.
I assume that since ARIN is a non-profit organization that they would 
not be affected by the current government shut down. I could be wrong. 
I see they will be represented at WISPALooza this year. I was hoping 
to get a little input on current success from others before I put in a 
lot more research

Re: [WISPA] Need mast mounting bracket for I-Beam

2013-09-26 Thread Scott Reed
I get beam clamps and other required hardware from a local electrical 
supplier.
I would put a beam clamp on the bottom of one of the beams going left to 
right.  Bolted to that would be a Minerallac clamp for the size pipe you 
are using.  We would use 1-1/2 EMT.  Another beam clamp and pipe clamp 
at the top of the beam that runs up and down in the picture.  We do 10' 
pipe as long as we can get more than 2' separation of the clamps.  
Shorter pipe if clamps closer together. Also depends on what is going on 
it, but that is a general rule.

 Hello list,

 I have a client that I am setting up a PtP wireless link between two

This is the key you were looking for, but there is more.
If you are using MT clients, you can use areas and then you do not have

I've tried MikroTik.

I've tried Cisco.

I've tried UniFi.

I pretty much don't think there is a working way to roam from AP to AP 
with 802.11 in an open system.


The client holds on to the weak AP long after there are stronger AP's 
to talk to.


I think this is just the way it works.

Now, we are giving each AP a unique ESSID but keeping them bridged on 
the wired side and requiring the user to change the connection when 
out of range...


Not the best answer, but it works much better for the clients who 
don't move much...  I'd love a better answer...

Re: [WISPA] Latest trend for heavy wooded areas

2013-08-22 Thread Scott Reed
That's not the way I understand digital radio transmissions.  They can 
all get the same number of bit transitions per cycle.  That being the 
case, you will get 2.67x more maximum on a 2.4G link than a 900M link 
and about 6.4x more on a 5.8G than 900M.


Try them in a clean environment, like your work area.  What is the 
maximum throughput you can get on a 900MHz link when your SNR is 80 or 
90.  I don't think you will ever see it doing air rates of 100M.

If your throughput is low, you have too little signal for the noise

are designed for much larger and taller masts. Also very pricey, $150 
or more each.


Does anyone make a small non-penetrating roof mount, say 2ft square 
out of metal with an attachment to hold a 5ft mast or including a 5ft 
mast? Maybe a single cinder/cement block to weigh it down would be all 
that is needed. Won't ever need to go higher.


Or do you have another suggestion for mounting?

Thanks in advance,

No, it isn't. Mikrotik defaults everything to cost 10, no matter the 
medium or speed.
I am pretty sure I have seen other vendors that set everything to a 
particular value.

Cisco does default based on medium link speed.

That is how all ospf costs default based on ether link speed.  In

You should actually set costs higher and not use single digits so you 
have wiggle room.  You also want to try and eliminate the static 
routes or atleast set their metric so high that they are last resort.


Redistributed routes are important as well.  It is a balancing act.

I know that is how Cisco figures default values, but it is not always 
the best.  I may have a 10M wire link and a 54M wireless link.  The 
average data flow is 5M, so want the 10M wire to be the primary 
because it is more reliable.  I would give it a lower cost than the 
faster wireless link.


If you have a wireless link that you know suffers from temperature 
inversion problems every morning and one that doesn't, but is slower, 
you may want the slower, more reliable link to have the lower cost so 
that your reliability stays high, but if that link goes down, you 
still have a link to use.


As with most things in this business, there are general guidelines, 
but you also have to know your network and make informed decisions, 
not just follow some rule of thumb.

Cost is what is used for determining routes.  Priority is for who has 
the the more important information. Typically we leave the priority at 
default.

Set the cost on the backup links higher than the cost on the primary links.

but only have static routing in place, so I had to manually route 
around the down link.


I have a bench setup running based on the Mikrotik Wiki example, it's 
running and working, but I'm stuck on the part where I assign 
cost/distance/priority or whatever the term is to make it decide one 
link over another. I'm not really grasping how that works.


Any suggestions for a tutorial or documentation which explains that, 
or if it's simple, maybe just tell me what I need to do?


I want to be able to assign priority to the links so that it won't 
always take the least # of hops path, we have a redundant link between 
two main towers which is an old nanobridge link and want to reserve it 
as the backup link.


Thanks for any advise!

Re: [WISPA] [WISPA - Offlist] OSPF Tutorial/Guide

2013-07-20 Thread Scott Reed
I have a network with about 800 devices running OSPF.  If you need more 
help, let me know.
I do consulting for several WISPs helping get from bridged to routed, 
setting up routers correctly, etc.
If is is easy, no charge.  If is going to take some time/effort, I 
charge $65.00/hour for the actual time involved, no minimum.  Let me 
know what I can do to help.

Re: [WISPA] [WISPA - Offlist] OSPF Tutorial/Guide

2013-07-20 Thread Scott Reed
I know that is how Cisco figures default values, but it is not always 
the best.  I may have a 10M wire link and a 54M wireless link.  The 
average data flow is 5M, so want the 10M wire to be the primary because 
it is more reliable.  I would give it a lower cost than the faster 
wireless link.


If you have a wireless link that you know suffers from temperature 
inversion problems every morning and one that doesn't, but is slower, 
you may want the slower, more reliable link to have the lower cost so 
that your reliability stays high, but if that link goes down, you still 
have a link to use.


As with most things in this business, there are general guidelines, but 
you also have to know your network and make informed decisions, not just 
follow some rule of thumb.




On 7/20/2013 8:06 PM, can...@believewireless.net wrote:
Cost should be set based on the speed of the link.  So, if you have a 
1 Gbps link in your network, set the cost of routers on either side to 
1.  If you have a 333 Mbps link, set the cost of the routers on either 
side to 3.  100 Mbps link?  Cost = 10.  So, your 1 Gbps link speed is 
really 1000 Mbps so cost = 1000 / Speed.

Can you have different voltage on different ports or is it just one

took 48v in and allowed 12/24/48 out selectively. Add in surge

little bit, but it sure would make things tidy. Although with a small 
unit like this, you could have two or three running different voltages 
and probably have some ports to spare. Not that I need such  a device

Re: [WISPA] Metal building parapet wall mount for 3ft dish question

Nello has mounts specifically for this, too.

Scott,

Its either brick with metal covering it or it hollow with light steel 
H beam construction.


If its block underneath or if its steel I would drill all the way 
through and sandwich the wall on each side.


We would use a Site Pro 1 WM1665 or SP250-6 with 2 pieces of 3 x 3 
angle on the back side.


If the wall is hollow just dandwich both sides of a vertical beam.

You may need to notch out the metal for the mount to sit flush against 
the beam.


If its block you just need to shim up the mount to accomodate the 
corrugated surface. Site Pro sells square backer washers that can be 
used for this.

Subject: [WISPA] Metal building parapet wall mount for 3ft dish question


I've never disassembled a parapet wall on a metal building to see 
whats back behind the sheet metal that runs vertical on the roof side 
of the parapet wall, but I need to know whats back there and the best 
way to attach a 3ft licensed radio and dish and the mount needs to be 
beefy - as in welded galvanized mount that probably weighs 50 pounds 
itself.  I'm going to need to tie into something substantial behind 
the flimsy wall sheet metal.  I've mounted lighter loads to these 
walls but I just need this to stay put - it can't flex or move at all 
I have 3deg to work with on 11ghz and its out of town.


Anyone know of a mount that works good for this or can tell me whats 
back in there?  They must all be made similarly as every metal 
building I've seen is built the same.  I have included a link to a 
photo showing exactly what it looks like.  Dish needs to go next to 
the other jpole there - I have no idea what that is and I didn't put 
it there fyi :)


Thanks, appreciate it.

Re: [WISPA] Medical companies

2013-01-10 Thread Scott Reed
We have a local hospital  that won't allow using wireless because they 
had a bad experience with a different supplier.
Since a lot of their people don't tell them who the provider is, we have 
several customers using our service.


I agree with one of the other posts.  Tell the customer to tell them 
they have an Ethernet connection.  It is true and eliminates the issue 
of medium.  If they require DSL, I guess it is a good thing you are not 
a fiber provider.  That wouldn't be DSL either.

So anyone can copy it and those that paid for it provide the funding for 
those that don't.
Not saying that MTs licensing it perfect, but requiring a license is a 
very common thing.  Think Microsoft, Cisco, etc.

 Until then, I really like my 493Gs running 5.21.  We have not run
 any production MikroTik wireless gear.  We just haven't.  We picked

 I have 6.0rc6 on the MikroTik in the house.  It has wireless.  It

 it is an alpha release...

 I have a couple of RB2011UAS units on the bench.  They aren't in

 UBNT and MikroTik both have software QA issues.  At this price

I depends on what fiber they hand you.  If it is Multi-Mode, you can get

If it is Single Mode, you may as well get a router with SFP ports as to

 Today that is not the case...  One can get good quality SM or Multi-Mode

 BTW.. if you are going to be needing multiple connections, one might
 consider putting in a Gigabit Switch with SFP ports on them...

You and I can.  John Doe, the average user, doesn't know it is on,

When we give him native v6, he will think we did something great to

I don't see IPv6 utilized in my real world until 5-10 years from now.  
We do provide some customers v6 routed address space and our entire 
network is routed and supports it, but thats because people like to 
play with it because its something new in the networking world they 
want to understand, not because anyone actually requires it.  It does 
provide a small marketing bonus, for those that don't understand it - 
sounds good any way lol


I see it as somewhat as a liability to my network, since there are 
sure to be bugs in its implementation and dual stack functionality.  
Just a fear I have, been there done that with different routing 
protocols in the past and the programmers have not yet achieved 
perfection yet :)


But, I flex, have to let people have their v6 fun (employees and 
customers alike...)

) to the new plan.  There is no human intervention required
 beyond the effort that made it possible.  FWIW, this system uses all 3
 of the manufacturers I mentioned above and the portal works
 (automatically) with all 3.  That portal was written in PHP by a
 programmer that I hired and he and I spent a total of about 400 hours
 getting it together.  You want one?  Just find a programmer and tell him
 what you want and how you accomplish it manually and let him do the
 rest, OR start programming it yourself.  It isn't that hard, as Simon
 said.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti Radios as routers

2012-10-12 Thread Scott Reed
MT has several devices with hardware switches on board and fully 
accessible through the GUI.  They also have a switch sort of based on ROS.

There could be one NAT, at the access point.

My taste, which to be sure I haven't tested at scale in a wireless 
network (but plan to), is to follow what is becoming standard wireline 
practice and do switching, not bridging, at layer 2. Routing would 
then be lumped into one place, making it easier to manage.


The problem with small Linux-based systems (this includes both UBNT 
and MT) is that they don't tend to have switching documented or set up 
in the UI, even if it's possible.  Bridging is bad -- it was designed 
for orange hose Ethernet, and it passes broadcast traffic to everyone. 
We invented this at DEC in the 1980s and discovered how it doesn't 
scale too well -- we had a couple of thousand DECnet and IP nodes on a 
bridged LAN, and the background broadcast traffic level was 400 kbps. 
This was a lot for systems to handle in 1991.  I was testing ISDN 
bridges and discovered how you can't just bridge that type of 
network across a 56k connection.  (I discovered the traffic when I 
first turned up the bridge.  I ended up isolating it behind a router, 
built from an old VAX.  At DEC, we built everything ouf of VAXen.)


Switching, though, is what Frame Relay and ATM do, and now Carrier 
Ethernet is the big thing for fiber.  It uses the VLAN tag to identify 
the virtual circuit; the MAC addresses are just passed along.  Since 
it's connection-oriented (via the tag), it can have QoS assigned.  I 
think it's theoretically possible to tag user ports, route on tags and 
set QoS on RouterOS, but it's not obvious how to do it all.  Switching 
doesn't pass broadcast traffic; it provides more isolation and privacy 
than plain routing.  Mesh routing then works at that layer, 
transparent to IP.  It'll be interesting to set up.

Re: [WISPA] Upload and download Shaping in MikroTik radios

2012-09-05 Thread Scott Reed
If you are using MT as the CPE, you can just do simple queue on the CPE, 
both up and down get set on the wire interface.


On 9/5/2012 9:13 AM, Paul Hendry wrote:
Depends on your topology. If you are planning to use 
username/passwords with PPP then bandwidth limits can be done on the 
PPP concentrator. If they are just going to be routed then you will 
need to mark all traffic then use queue trees to limit the traffic. 
Trees are applied to outgoing traffic on an interface so customer 
download queue would be on the ethernet port of the CPE and upload 
would be on the wlan.

Re: [WISPA] Recommended MT product for effective bandwidth shaping on 100Mbit/s + link

2012-09-05 Thread Scott Reed
Depending on required ports, the 4xxAH boards have a lot more memory and 
CPU.

1xxx series is bigger.
Then there are the Intel based units from a variety of vendors.
We use Baltic Networks RouterMaxx at the border.  Very satisfied. Butch 
Evans, Steve Discher, LincTech and others have similar units.

Hi All

Could someone recommend a Mikrotik product, ideally one of Router 
Boards w/ enclosure, that would be effective for performing bandwidth 
shaping of ~3 dozen clients sharing a single uplink with 100Mbit/s 
download speed?  I.e., what product are you using for this purpose now?


Ideally, the bandwidth shaping could enforce multiple profiles, e.g. 
some clients get 10Mbit/s down, some get 3Mbit/s down.  There would be 
comparable shaping applied on clients' upload speeds, but the 
correctly shaped download speeds are a higher priority.  Also, it is 
possible this uplink may be upgraded 200 or even 300Mbit/s, so it 
would be cool if the MT product (which I presume would have 1Gbit/s 
integrated LAN) could also handle an uplink of that speed too.


A friend of mine is presently trying to use an RB750GS for this 
purpose, but he is finding that the bandwidth shaping becomes 
ineffective for trying to ensure consistently shaped download speeds 
above ~5Mbit/s (i.e all clients only seem to see single-digit Mbit/s, 
regardless of which shaping profile is applied).  My guess is that the 
RB750 is simply exhausting its available RAM trying to maintain queues 
for for the faster shaping profiles, causing them to effectively 
saturate at a fixed upper limit, and that my friend could use one of 
the beefier Router Boards with more RAM.  But I'm unsure which product 
would have adequate capacity and not be $$$ overkill.


(Also, I'm trying to discourage him from dropping lots of $$$ on a 
Cisco product, when a cheaper Mikrotik product could presumably still 
meet his needs.)


Thanks.

Re: [WISPA] Internet Speed test..are they inaccurate with wireless?

For us this is the biggest one.
I will have customer call, speedtest says 384K.  Look at the radio and 
we are pushing 2.04M in on a 2M connection.  Ask your kids to turn off 
all their devices and try again.  Oh, wow, I am getting the full 2M 
now. What did you change?  Then the long explanation about shared 
bandwidth on their connection.
Has to be the same for businesses, though it is kind of hard to have all 
the other kids turn off their computers.

linksmall ratios of 3:1.


Of course eventually at some point the customer runs one of those 
stupid bandwidth test on the Internet and the results are woefully 
inaccurate (not in our favor)...but  of course customers take the 
results as gospel. AAA!


It's not our internet connections, we have three 100Mbps BGP links and 
none of them run at more then 50% during peak loads.


Has anyone else found those Internet speed test to be woefully 
inaccurate? Or is something else going on that I'm missing?


Thanks,
Bret

SURVEY
 LINK --- http://tier.cs.berkeley.edu/drupal/wisp-study

 Hello!

 My name is Shaddi, and I'm a graduate student at UC Berkeley in the
 TIER research group (http://tier.cs.berkeley.edu).

 We're conducting a research study on the network management
practices
 and challenges faced by WISPs. Our study's goal is to develop an
 understanding of the network management practices and challenges of
 WISPs in order to guide research towards making WISPs simpler to
 manage.

 Our study has two parts. The first is a survey (which should take
 about 5-10 minutes). Every question in our survey is optional, and
 best estimates are fine. After completing the survey, you may
 volunteer to participate in a completely optional follow-up phone
 interview, which should take 30-45 minutes.

 After completing the survey, you may provide your email address
to be
 entered into a drawing for one of three $100 Amazon.com gift cards.
 Those who complete a follow-up interview will be entered into a
 separate drawing for one of two additional $100 Amazon.com gift
cards.

 Here's what I promise:
 1) This survey is completely anonymous, though if you choose to
 provide your name and/or your organization's name, I won't share it
 with anyone.
 2) If I publish data from this study, I will only report aggregate
 statistics.
 3) I will only share the raw data from the study with my research
 advisor, Prof. Eric Brewer.

 Here's the link to the survey:
 http://tier.cs.berkeley.edu/drupal/wisp-study

 If you have any questions, feel free to contact me either
directly or
 on-list.

 Thanks!
 Shaddi

 I like the service features and all, but the site looks like it's
 been rather idle for a few years.  No action on the discussion
 groups, last posts a few years ago, very few posts, stuff like
 that.  Not to mention the site itself seems only partially complete.

 Is anyone familiar with these guys?

Re: [WISPA] TrangoLink45 issue

2012-03-07 Thread Scott Reed
Since we are consistently pushing over 35M through the link and all the 
comments have pointed to bad equipment, this link will be replaced with 
different radios later this week.
Thanks too all who responded.

On 3/7/2012 9:58 AM, Tom DeReggi wrote:
 Ive found the problem usually to be a failing TLink, and the necessary
 solution to usually be replace the TLink with a new Tlink

 I'm never quick to replace a Tlink with another brand, if the Tlink has
 enough capacity for the purpose of the link.
 With TLinks, I have solid indicators when a radio is operating properly or
 not. Thats important. With other brands, (like UBNT), its sometimes harder
 to know for sure whether a link is working optimally, from the perspective
 of the end user's throughput. Not to mention, TLinks great for legal 5.4 and
 5.3.

 A couple things to check
 I've seen two other things cause the same symptom...

 1) The power supply going bad. Fixed by replacing power supply.

 2) Out of alignment antenna. If the  antenna gets severally out of
 alignment, for example if the radio is dangling towards the roof because the
 mast got knocked over or pulled out of the wall brick in high winds, and the
 link needs to struggle to stay associated, there can be a huge amount of ARQ
 retransmissions, and it can over tax the software, and evenually the
 software crashes. I dont know why, I'm not their programmer. Maybe its some
 sort of exceed buffer type of thing.  In some cases it will get bad enough
 where the RF communicates, but one side of the link will not pass traffic
 through it, meanting between the wired Ethernet and RF. The quick fix is to
 reboot either side. Because the RF is up, its also possible to remotely
 reboot the CPE or AP side.  And even oif the CPE is the failed unit,
 rebooting the AP will fix the CPE. I dont know why it occurs, but it does.
 When these symptoms exist, often when I do Sysinfo, it only shows a small
 bit of info, and then hangs.

 So in summary, before calling a equipment bad, visually verify the equipment
 is still properly mounted.

 Please note these symptoms are rare to occur, and do not occur on
 non-defective Tlinks that are properly mounted, with proper link budgets.

Re: [WISPA] tower height near airport

2012-02-28 Thread Scott Reed
I can not remember if it is on the FCC or FAA website, but there is a 
tool that will get you started.  It will tell you whether you can put a 
tower there an dhow high.

 into a grass run-way for the airport (small town).  and its also prettly
 close to perpendicular from the main run-way thats probably around 1000

 all the wonderful paperwork that way.  I don't think zoning will be an
 issue but I'm more concerned about the tower height in relation to the
 airport.

[WISPA] Customer Payment Drop-off

2012-02-11 Thread Scott Reed
We are outfitting a new office location.  We have customer that, for 
whatever reason, like to drop-off their payments which are sometimes 
cash.  So, I am looking for suggestions on what to use for a secure 
payment drop-box.  If you accept after hours drop-off payments, what do 
you use to collect them?

Re: [WISPA] LMR Cables

2012-02-08 Thread Scott Reed

May depend on where you think the moisture is getting in.
I had one installer that was wrapping from the connector down the wire 
instead of up to the connector.  Wrapping up makes it like shingles, 
even if some gets in it should run down the outside of the next layer.
I have also seen gaps at the top where the installer could not see all 
the way around.
I like two layers of Super 33 tape on the sealant, whichever it is.  One 
wrapped clockwise, one counter clockwise.

Re: [WISPA] Backhaul Link gone bonkers

2012-01-30 Thread Scott Reed
Update after more work today.
Replaced all the electronics at one end early this morning.  No real change.
Replace the cable and antenna at that end this afternoon.  When we got 
there the link was running with RSSI of around 67/70 and CCQ in the 50's 
both ways.  Aligned the antenna and I watch the stats for a while while 
the climber we getting the old antenna off of the tower.  Signal 
strength went to around 57/65 and quality was running in the high 80s to 
mid 90s.  Thought it was fixed.  Climber finished attaching new cable to 
tower as he came down.  When He got to the bottom I checked things 
again.  Signals are 67/70 and CCQ is all over the place.  I have seen 
the CCQ jump from 90 to 14 at least once this evening.  It didn't drop 
the link at 14, rather it climbed back up to nearly 80 and then dropped.
I am at a complete loss as to what is going on.
Oh, the last time I looked, noise floor was around -100 so SNR is 
running 30 to 40.

This link is over 5 years old.  XR5 cards will connect and pass a

I am trying to figure out why a 5 year old link suddenly quits and new

I'm not that familiar with the ubiquiti products, but from the data 
sheet the radio will put out 23 dBm and requires a -74dBm signal to 
work (the data sheet does not say what channel size this measurement 
is from, I'll assume a 20 MHz channel).


What strikes me is your normal RSL is is only 3dB more than the min 
RSL needed to link at 54 mbit/s.  This is well within the normal 
variance of a radio path (+-3dB), and could be causing the radios to 
switch back and forth between data rates (only after taking some 
errors).   It could be interference, but even 3dB of on channel 
interference is enough to raise the noise floor and lower your S/N 
radio (keep in mind in a ofdm radio the RSL numbers given assume a 
perfect noise free system, for ever dB of noise you have add a dB to 
your RSL).


If you want a 54mbit OTA rate you need a much better signal for it to 
be reliable.  If you need no less than a -74dBm signal, ensure you 
have a -60dBm or better signal (rule of thumb) during steady state 
operation.  This will give you some head room for changes in the 
atmosphere (K value) and other issues that pop up from time to time.  
If you suspect interference, try to figure out if it's local or remote 
and where it's at.  If you can use a HP dish to knock down off path 
noise, do it.  When I was deploying backhaul radios in unlicensed 
space, I made HP dish's standard on all my links.


Unfortunately this is not cheap to do things properly, but it will let 
you sleep easy at night.

2012-01-29 Thread Scott Reed
One end is just us and the 4 other links there are fine.
The other is is us and at least 2 other WISPS, an FM repeater station, 
some public service repeaters, some commercial 2-way repeaters and ...
Just looking at the tower, I don't think there is anything new, but I 
will ask the tower owner tomorrow.
We changed everything at one end and all but the cable at the other.
Other 5GHz links we have for either tower do not show symptoms of 
interference, but that does not mean that isn't our problem.

 If you replaced all gear and even tried a different coax in place of the 60' 
 of LMR then it would have to be some kind of noise, coming in via the power 
 lines or radiated. Who else is on the tower?

 Did you only replace/try different gear on one tower or did you try both ends?

 Have you done any spectral analysis?

 I have a link that went bonkers last Saturday or Sunday and it has me
 stumped.
 RB433AH with XR5 at each end.
 Signals running around -69/-71.  CCQ is the goofy one.  Most of the time
 one direction is in the 50% range, but varies quite a bit.  The other
 direction ranges from 16% to 100%.  Generally if I see it getting close
 to 100% I know the link is going to drop.  It comes right back up,
 usually at about 50%.
 I have tried 20MHz channels, 10MHz channels, 5MHz channels with about
 the same results from all.
 I have tried 5.2-5.3 frequencies and 5.7-5.8 frequencies.  The higher
 frequencies work better, but still not well.
 All of the hardware except one 60' piece of LMR as been replaced.
 Ask me some questions and offer some suggestions as this one has me
 totally stumped.
