This sounds good, but any hard numbers to go along with it? It says it's faster then r6, but what about r5 that we use now? I've seen the traffic on the olsr mailing list and i'm sure things will improve. I'll probably sit down today and try a comparision for myself, but I've been seeing over 20+Mbps on my anaptyx repeaters links(reported on dash) that If this somehow further increased that it would be just crazy.

Just started testing with 2 OM1P's. I had to dig them out, but both have 2671 on them running Coova with OLSR r5. Serious question though, right off the bat one hop away my speed test on speakeasy.net shows 468kbps. I don't see people typically putting speeds on the forum, but I'm really curious what speeds people actually get at the end point. While the speed above is ok for casual usage I don't see how it would do any good with lots of people or heavy usage. I also did a iperf test to and from my laptop to the gateway and only hit 7Mbps. Tests were done on channel 5 and nodes are about 20 feet apart.

In comparision anaptyx dual radio equipment/higher cpu power I can hit over 20Mbps doing the same test. Also on hop tests I get very little degrade in actual end point speed. If someone can help me create a baseline test I will document everything. For now here is an excel document showing some initial real world tests against a 16Mbps/2Mbps line. Next I'll test the mesh speeds, and later upgrade to this new OLSR and see what happens. I'm more concerned with speed then anything else at this point, we can have all the fancy features in the world, but if it's slow it's not going far.

Thought it included olsr r8, but still shows r7 on the om dash. I'll try and build it manually and test it later. Atleast on r7 pages appear to load alittle faster, but speakeasy.net one hop away still shows the same snail speed on the OM1P.

Thanks, I'll fire them back up and reflash now. Saves me from rebuilding now.

@sedatkaan If you want, could you PM me details to fill at in my dash and I will try and replicate your internet outage issue. I'll see what happens to my nodes when I run your captive portal. You never did say what dash your using, might/could be part of the problem.

Slight improvement, but at 643kbps on one hop away it's still a huge degrade. I haven't used single radio equipment except the netgear in almost 4 months. I say keep bringing on the improvements, I think the limit at this point is hardware/addemo on the single radio equipment. When I can hit 20+Mbps across the mesh and over 12Mbps wirelessly to a one hop anaptyx device, I know it's not Robin that's the problem.

agree, single-radio devices are not so good as multi-radio Smile
Thanks for reporting.

@sedatkaan
I'm trying to figure out the problem, I only know that loss of inet (about every 5 mins) happens if wifi-cpa - maybe wifirush too - is used (... I do not say that those captive portals are broken).

I have been able to get speedtests on speakeasy hitting 5Mbps on the mesh without issue and upload speeds at 1Mbps using 2610's and r2671 firmware with coovaOM portal.

Speakeasy seems to be instance dependant on how much speed you can get..depends on the time your trying I guess

I can confirm this loss of internet on wifirush... trying to resolve the problem.. r2671 is the rev I"m using.

I keep getting a portal error and the nodes reboot etc as well. Problem of internet connection doesn't happen on a 1650 gateway for me, only the 2610's with the same firmware

I have same problems, using mikrotik as gateway/firewall, coovaom, same ssid on all routers, and near me we have dir300 and a fonera, 2mbps network load, and msn messenger reboots every 4-5 min.

The increase in load time for web pages on repeaters was about a factor of 10. If it was a 10% or so difference I would have posted formal tests, but like I said the increase was so large that you can measure it without a stopwatch.

Didn't see any noticeable improvement in repeater speed with olsrd - r7 When a compilation is done with olsrd- r8 maybe then we'll see the difference.

Shows olsr r7 on the Open-Mesh dashboard but reports r2681 - 2.6.26.8
when I ssh into the unit. Curious as to why the difference.

HOWEVER... It did appear to resolve issues with the 2610's and 1650's checking-in/heartbeat/portal failure issues that I was experiencing in the WiFiRush/CPA portal and dashboard..

So far, +18hrs without a failure or hiccup.

Fingers Crossed...


Havn't benchmarked it yet, but static dashboard speeds reporting in about 10-15% higher on average.. Have to see real world performance.

Felt I would check this out under WifiRush/CPA portal/dashboards and same thing..

WiFiRUSH reports

Firmware:
Routing Daemon: 0.5.6-r7
Firmware: r2681-26/cO
Free Memory: 13652 kb
Lowest Reported: 12784 kb

BUT.. ssh into the unit and it reports r2681 - 2.6.26.8

Just thought to updata ya!

I made a custom change on your dashboard to pull upgrades from Antonio's test repository (containing ROBIN 2683)

First update, then allow it to reboot if necessary, then run an upgrade on your node. Note; be prepared to re-flash manually if it goes south

Code:


/sbin/update
# wait for the reboot - maybe 
/sbin/upgrade
