New release of very early 4.6 code
#1
https://cp.sync.com/dl/277a92c00#i4szaug...h-4cwhrtfb

I have uploaded the very latest 4.6 series test code. It was built for the Ventana, War1B, and X86-APU. All platforms have been tested.

I was able to get the total throughput and rates to show on the Association.

Country codes work, as do channel selections. Be careful and don't get too creative. I would actually appreciate if you stick to US for initial testing. ## shows it is there, BUT it is NOT. Please do not even try it.

My main request is for a real world test where the old 4.5 series would slowly lose associations and go deaf. Please give this a try, within the constraints of the US country code.

SNMP is unknown. I have no setup to test it. If it is there it will definitely NOT have anything besides the simple Atheros wifi info.

I will be working to get the rest of the gui elements in place for the Association Screen.

This is all NEW code so be careful until you have tried it in some easy to get locations. Once you have some settings you are comfortable with, then try it in harder spots.

Please provide feedback about your results. There are still a few debug messages about resets. They are not crashes but are recoveries. I will be tracking them down and they will go away. I have not had them cause any grief.

That initial hiccup when pinging to a dormant unit is gone. Pings should now be immediate.

Supported Platforms:

geckov4-CAMBRIA-4.6.1.0.8335.world.11abgn.pkg

All gui items for frequency and flags have been resolved. I am working on getting a Laguna release followed by War2, wp188, war1a.

Is there any feedback regarding this current release?

OK, good news and bad news. https://cp.sync.com/dl/702dc6c20#ii9ez87...6-hp9ay4zw

APU, Ventana, War1B are OK with build #8308
Laguna is OK with build #8309

The War1a will not build. The new driver makes the flash too big.
The WP188 builds but makes a brick (3 of them so far).

So, let's move on with these platforms for now. I'll get some jtag experience and see if I can recover those WP188 units. LATER. Right now I want to get the ## channels going and (maybe) Cloaking.

I have posted a firmware for the Gateworks Avila which we always called the War4 and War2 which should work as well. I don't have a test unit.

I am also going to post a Gateworks Cambria if it builds. Not many people have used it but the core is basically an Avila so it should be easy.

I have posted a firmware for the Gateworks Cambria which is the Gateworks Avila with a faster CPU. I am actually quite pleased with its performance.

Now to get back to ## channels.

I've put this release (4.6.0.1-8308) on our AP#86 and on a WAR1B client attached to it. Everything reconnected and passes data.

The 'IDLE' flag in the GUI always shows 0. Is that just not counting yet, or is that due to a hack to solve the missing-first-ping issue, or is that seeing background management data?

Arghh. I totally missed that little gui feature. Thanks for pointing it out.

The first ping issue was solved by the new driver and not some hack to keep it alive. Glad it is working for you and hope it proves to be great over time.

Check the latest (build 8335). I have completed the GUI and idle time is properly tracked by the AP.

David found a display issue for 5 GHz. The frequency is 1 out.

It is a display issue only caused by float to integer conversion, ie the old 2 becomes 1.999999. It has been fixed.


It takes too much time to build and test each platform, so I will not make a new release until there is more to show -- ## channels.

I have tried this new version on a point to point link using 2 war1b units and 2 3' dishes at 15 miles. I just about tried every setting included 11a mode and i did get it to associate 1 time after leaving it alone for about 15 minutes. I have no idea why but it does not work at least for me. Rolled back to 4.4.5.7 and all good. Has anyone had good success with this version yet. I am getting a little desperate on all my Ventana units about ready to swap out with alix boards. Even on the 4.4.5.7 release i get over 50 resets a day and customers are starting to notice. Not sure what to do. I am upgrading backhaul at this site this week and i at a minimum have to add a 3rd AP using alix board until we get this reset issue ironed out. Any others with success?
