In order to support ARQ and M5580 SUs, the Trango 5830AP must be upgraded to
the newest Firmware v2.0r2.
It states in the Firmware tech notes, that it support sellecting which CPEs
are ARQ enabled by setting its SUID. 1-500 = ARQ CPE, 501-8190 no-ARQ.
However, I have an exusting 5800 SU on the sector which already has an SUID
under 500, and 5800 SUs do not support ARQ.
My understanding is that ARQ feature effects both sending from AP and
sending from SU, which is why ARQ needs to be enabled and disabled per SU on
both AP and SU.
My understanding is that 5800SUs can only have their SUID changed from
onsite over the Ethernet port.
So what happens, if I upgrade my 5830AP firmware, and leave the 5800SU in
the unsupported state on SUID 10 (under 500)?
Will it work OK? (Of course I know ARQ is unsupported on 5800, so ARQ
feature won't exist on SU side).
Can I do my radio upgrades tonight, and get around to changing the 5800 SUID
at a later date?
