See if anyone out there has an explanation for this one. Location A (My Tower) has C5c and 30 dbi 2’ dish. Location B (Customer) has C5c and 30 dbi 2’ dish. Currently operating in PTP mode.
Customer wants additional connection on same piece of property. So this is what I tried. Changed C5c at Location A to A5x. Changed C5c with new C5c that had been preconfigured and connected to the A5x in the shop. New C5c will not connect in the field. It will see the A5x and ESSID at -65, but will not connect. Same Antennas, Same Cables, Dishes were not moved. Put original C5c’s back in place, linked right up. Bring new A5x and C5c back to shop and they link right up.
Is there some type of distance limitation on the A5x? That appears to be the only difference in shop and field. The link is 17 miles from a tower to a hill top with a valley between. No LOS issues.
Also, I have already had Mimosa Support log into the radios and verify settings and firmware.
