  1. Anyone else seeing tremendous WISP slowdowns on UBNT 5.5.10 (versus 5.5.6)?

    We have a neighborhood setup in the Santa Cruz mountains, where we have
    been debugging a radio slowdown problem for weeks.

    We replaced the router, the cables, the radio, etc., and just today,
    we figured out, almost by accident, that simply updating the Ubiquiti
    firmware from 5.5.10 to 5.6.2 (which we did a while ago), was what
    seems to have caused the appreciable bandwidth slowdown.

    Has anyone else out there seen a huge slowdown in speeds when you
    "updated" your Ubuquiti firmware from 5.5.10 to 5.6.2?

    Any idea why?

  2. Not your brand of hardware/software but I have seen similar on DD-WRT
    upgrades. It took a reset to default settings, a boot, and hand
    reloading of the parameters in use plus a final boot and things came
    back up to speed.

    I think it was too much leftover stuff from that or prior upgrades that
    needed to be cleared out of memory after the final upgrade that was
    needed. A pain having to put the configuration back in manually but for
    me anyway it did the trick.

  3. Googling, I found on the ubnt forum that this is a nascent problem, which
    is just emerging, which appears to be related to new statistics software
    that Ubiquiti added to the latest release (which is, apparently, buggy).

    More to come, I'm sure...
