First many thanks to Atheros and Linux driver developers for this nice =
I have same problem with distances ( 7 km) as shown on the link =
The scp traffic for smaller files is OK for larger no chance. I need to =
transfer OSPF traffic but zebra says that the packet is broken (CRC =
error). I didn't see excessive retries but some kind of thraffic doesn't =
pass. I've try to overcom this with GRE tunnel but without success.
My test config is:
/sbin/iwconfig ath0 essid XXXXX mode Master channel 40 nick AP rts 2312 =
frag 2312 txpower 50mW
/usr/local/bin/athctrl -i ath0 -d 8000
/sbin/ifconfig ath0 10.11.250.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast =
ath0 IEEE 802.11a ESSID:"XXXXX" Nickname:"AP"
Mode:Master Frequency:5.2GHz Access Point: 00:0E:6A:7A:97:71
Bit Rate:0kb/s Tx-Power=3D17 dBm Sensitivity=3D0/3
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr=3D2312 B
Link Quality:32/94 Signal level:-63 dBm Noise level:-95 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:28 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:1 Invalid misc:156 Missed beacon:0
As you can see there is no problem with the quality and signal strength. =
I have no idea what we can do with this.
What we miss in config ( wre change tehe distance with and without =
tool). I've tried with Aironet 350 same distance and environment without =
Thanks in advance,
