I’m testing an A4 AP with the integrated 14dbi Omni and 2 5c Integrated SM’s.
One of the SM’s is buried in trees and only comes up at a -80. I have turned that one down as the trees are pretty well dead here so once they leaf out it won’t work.
The other however is a much clearer LOS, maybe 1 branch in the way. I can get the radio up at MCS 8/5 and a phy rate of around 360 x 200. However I take horrible packet loss. I’ve tested my cable and that is ok. I get about 50% packet loss when pinging out to the Internet, but no packet loss locally pinging the radio. I’ve tried different channels and different channel sizes. I’m not using a Mimosa-branded POE injector, but a different injector that supports 802.3at (Telrad CPE7000 Power Supplies are what I’m using).
Any ideas? I have pretty heavily used spectrum but even when I move the SM to a freq in a 20MHZ channel with a noise floor of around -90 I have this issue.
Any guidance/suggetstion would be appreciated. I’ve deployed a bunch of other vendor’s AP’s in noise-heavy areas and they work ok.
I did try both SRS and Wifi Interop Mode.
