Re: ARGH! Ubnt radios freezing!
UBNT has been recommending reducing power when the radios lock up, well...after they warm up first.
Cold Lake, AB
I didn't have to wait long for the next cold day. It is -28C and the Nanobridge M5's crapped out again.
It turns out it was the RF link. The GUI shows normal signals/indications that all is well, but obviously not!
I was able to restore the link by setting both to 21 dBm. 21 works, 22 doesn't. The shot is not perfect so my signal strength/quality is getting poor and I am reluctant to reduce the power further.
If it gets even colder, I suspect the problem will return. The long term solution is probably to get rid of them.
Even perfect LOS links do the same thing.
Reducing power fixes it.
Fortunately it doesn't often get that cold here. Maybe once or twice a year.--
