What?
No one saw this?
I guess no one goes to the open-mesh website anymore!

$59 intro price.

I wonder if redboot is disabled or some other closed source 'feature' is in place.

I have one on order so I'll let you know when I tear it open.

Maybe its that second cocktail, but I can't figure out how the 2nd LAN port works. Let us know when you figure that out...

It's now listed in the "Overview about the devices which you can flash using ap51-flash" under the "List of known to work uboot devices."

In regard to Redboot and uboot, elsewhere I find this:

My emails to Mike we're answered very quickly:

What is the chipset?
Atheros AR7240+

Are there any modifications to the boot loader?
All devices have a custom boot loader. This is uboot using tftp. It has multiple partitions so over-the-air upgrades can be done to the non-running partition.

Go on....?

It is modified uboot as I wrote.

If you have better/different ways of doing things, you’ll be on your own for that. I can’t help you there, sorry.


So, overall looks like a very nice, well priced device. I will definitely be ordering a few in the coming weeks.

I have 10 units arriving on Monday - will test and post feedback. Sounds like a very nice solution - performance sounds like around 10x the original OM1P.


I'd still love to see a true commercial dual radio (2.4/5) implementation for outdoor (high power), but these seem difficult to source...

I've got 3 on order, creeping their way across the boarder to Canada. I'm most interested in seeing if/how they mesh with other nodes running NG. the description specifically says they DON'T mesh with anything other than themselves. I hope this is somehow not correct, or is somehow worked around in a near future software upgrade.

While it's not the best idea to mix and match high power devices like these with low power devices like the OM1P, mr3201a, etc.

but, if you already have a bunch of low power devices and want to improve your speed, it's at least worth trying a few high-power devices and seeing if things improve. can't hurt to try!

If they do mesh with existing devices, i'd like to try some OM2P's as gateway devices, hoping that they're faster cpu and higher power radio will improve things somewhat. not expecting much, but hopeful!

As you say, dalenorman, the products page states: "The mesh feature is not compatible with the OM1P or MR500."
But is that perhaps referring to an OM1P running Robin? Do OM1Ps ship with ROBIN (269?) or NG?

to my knowledge, the OM1P still ships with robin. the mr500 ships with NG, but only meshes on 5ghz. I'll post when i've received my OM2P's and tried them out.

It is a little bit strange that they have now 3 devices that don't work with each other.

The MR meshes at 5G and the OM1P runs Robin on 2.4G.
I'm guessing the new device uses batman-adv on 2.4G.

It's a very fragmented product line for a business that began based on compatibility.

I'll be looking to put backfire on this device and use it for special cases where I need the extra ethernet port.

600mW = 26dBm?

agreed, but for the record, the OM2P hasn't actually been released - the OM2P Beta has. I think they're in a state of transition where the products are currently incompatible, but are (hopefully) working towards a stable platform based on NG with Batman-adv that meshes across all models.

i have no special insight here - more my hope than my knowledge.

I'm not so sure this will work, from my understanding it will take some effort with the custom boot loader and multiple partitions of flash.

Correct

Hmm, that means his page is wrong.
According to this page, 600 mW = 27.7815125038 dBm

Every conversion table or utility that I've used agrees with 'sankofa' in that 26dbm = ~400mW.

If one applies the rule-of-thumb that an increase of 3db effectively doubles the power, then if 26dbm equalled 600mW, 29dbm would be about 1,200mW. However there are many references that state that 30dbm = 1000mW which would make it impossible for 29dbm to be of greater power.

Using the same rule but starting with the premise that 26dbm = 400mW as stated by 'sankofa', then everything makes sense.

Keep in mind that doubling the power doesn't double the transmit distance.

We're actually defaulting to the new PicoStation2M's for our deployments. They're slick devices.

The MR3201A's are meshing with the OM2P?
Also, I tried ordering some two days ago and they are still not shipped yet.

I can't explain why or how... just showing what Dashboard is reporting. i haven't tested if they're actually usable or not.

The detailed spec for the OM2P has it correct at 400mW.

When I first saw 26dBm and 600mW I knew it had to be a typo.

10^2.6 = 398. or

10 * log(398) = 25.99

For those interested in a look at the boot console output:

Yes, that caught my eye also. That must be the spare partition. I noticed two other things also: it has a 350MHz CPU not a 400MHz CPU as he advertises and the device checks for a tftp server at boot time, following the boot loader which is strange.

I managed to "acquire" some information after a bit of peeking around in the NG firmware.

tftp Flash IPs
Code:
OM2P: 192.168.100.9
You: 192.168.100.8


Serial Access (only the Baud Rate is confirmed, not too sure on the others):
Code:
Baud Rate: 115200
Data Bits: 8?
Parity: None?
Stop Bits: 1?


Flash Partitioning:
Code:
size-Device Label-My description
256k (u-boot, the boot loader)
256k (u-boot-env, stores variables such as the mac address, boot delay)
1280k (custom, empty)
1024k (kernel, the Linux Kernel: Its OpenWrt)

I see that the new changelog for r330 includes new kernel and wifi drivers...

But no indication what the story is with the new driver or whether it's something that might also benefit ROBIN.

I have 8 installed in a production network - installed over last week to replace the Ubiquiti gear I had been previously using. Initial feedback is that they perform brilliantly. At times I am getting up to 18Mbps over a 3km link (obviously with some good antennae). At times the performance drops (known issue that Open-Mesh is now working on resolving - it will be deployed as a over the air update.

In my opinion, these perform better than the ubiquiti units. Interestingly, my network now has a mix of OM1P and OM2P, all running Firmware NG - seems to perform very well. The OM1P performance effectively doubled when I changed the firmware to NG

Cheers

Scott

I've got 3 and have them on a test network with a couple of OM1P's. i'm looking to improve the throughput on some existing large networks by adding a few of OM2P's as gateways and here than there as repeaters.

So far, i can't believe what i'm seeing - the stats on dashboard are just too good to be true.

my internet is not fast enough to test to see if these numbers are right - but they can't be right!

i'm looking forward to r330 being pushed over the air to all nodes - hopefully in the next couple of days.

They can get up to 65 M/bits with the current software, so its possible. You must not have much distance between them? Also, r330 is available now (http://dev.cloudtrax.com/downloads/testing/firmware-ng/).

Mine actually don't work at all, I was quite disappointed initially but I got in touch with Mike and he has been very supportive and apparently has a fix in the works.
