I am surprised no one has mentioned this. I looked up power consumption on the SR5 and it shows 800 to 1300 mA each. You state your power supply is 700mA. I did not look up power consumption for the RB532 but I would think you would need at least a 3A supply. -Original Message- From:

The 800 to 1300mA consumption is at 3.3V. The 700mA from the PS is at 48V so there is probably plenty of power going to it. Is the CAT5 shielded? What else is on the tower? -Hal -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Mark McElvy Sent:

Yes, ethernet is shielded. The good stuff. It's like almost 1/2 inch cat5. The tower has pagers, lots of trango, few backhauls, canopy 900, and some more I believe. The only thing up with me is some trango, and they have no problem. I am pointing at a bad cable. Brian Harold Bledsoe

I would say that it depends on the application. The CM9 and the R52 use different generation of Atheros chipset. The main difference between the 2 chipsets is the newer chipset requires slightly less power to run and if you are running the card in 10MHz or 5MHz modes it will only listern

The 4th gen Atheros cards although they are capable of transmitting at 5MHz, 10MHz, 20MHz and 40MHz they can only listen at 20MHz and 40MHz. The 6th gen cards however, can both transmit and listen at 5MHz, 10MHz, 20MHz and 40MHz. An example is that if a CM9 is set to 5GHz-5MHz with a cf of 5805 it

When I say re-terminations I mean do you have a single cat5 cable from PoE injector to RB532 or do you use any fly leads. Also, do you terminate the outdoor cat5 to a connector on the AP then a further internal short cat5 to the RB532? Also, how many re-terminations do you have between the power
