  • Country Codes on AWD 5GHz Radio September 13, 2017
    Hi Gavin The issue is that when the GB (or any other) country code is selected, only certain channel and power combinations are permitted. This is enforced in the OpenWrt software. The default channel in the AWD firmware is 157, and when I tested, it seems that this channel will not operate

  • Mesh Extender September 3, 2017
    Hi Gavin Basically you need to configure an adhoc wifi interface in /etc/config/wireless and with the SSID and BSSID set to match the mesh. Have a look at the file on a tunning SECN device for comparison. Then you add that interface to batman-adv with "batctl if add ..." Then you can run
  • network reloading September 1, 2017
    Hi All I performed some configuration on the /etc/config/network file and saved the changes but when i ran /etc/init.d/ network restart/reload there are no changes. Instead I lost connections and have to do fall back in order to up the mesh node. I installed secn 4 on the ubuquity devices.

  • Re: iperf2 on MPAWDs with SECN5 August 15, 2017
    Hi Shree The SECN5 firmware is based on LEDE / OpenWrtDD which is why you can't install the package from BB or CC. The SECN5 firmware is also seriously incomplete due to compatibility issues with LEDE/OpenWrt DD. I suggest that you use the SECN4 firmware for the AWD from here: http://downlo
