Looking at a packet
capture for DHCP by VPN300 I can see a one way traffic for the
repeater in that a client connecting can sent a DHCP discover the
offer sents but no request and ack. This is when AP root is up and
then the repeater that the issue happens and then needing to reboot
the AP router for the repeater to work.
When all is working I
see the WAX510D reports for the WDS downlink info shows Rx rate and
Tx rate but the NWA1123-AC HD for the WDS uplink info only shows Rx rate?
So could the two models
not be 100% compatible for a WDS setup?
In the mean time I
tried manually changing the channel this time to 36 and seem to be
stable last time I tried 52 and the mesh went down within 24hr so I
will see how long 36 stays up for. Disregard it
stopped working with manual channel
My thanks for
investigating this issue.
Thats great news thanks
The reboot of the
repeater is fixed for joining the mesh but it reports low Rx Rate in WDS link info at
173M which should be 866M if I reboot the AP root it goes to 866M it
does not seem to adjusts over time which I'm now doing a uptime test
Edit: yup the repeater for RX is stuck at 173M until you reboot the AP root or change the Radio 2 settings on the repeater.
Its stays at 173M on
first boot of the repeater and never changes over hours gone by.
The only fix is reboot
the AP root or change the Radio 2 settings on the repeater just
changing Multicast to Unicast to Fixed Multicast Rate re-links the WDS
link to 866M Rx.
