Hi all

I would just like to report that r2690 I think is the most stable ROBIN version ever based on an open network.

I have a test network at my home and in the past i've used the internet with a direct connection to my xDSL router. I've been running r2690 for days now and I can't tell the difference between a mesh network and a direct connect.

I risked it and upgraded manually my netgears at a hotel and I will say it really solved some low memory reboot issues there.

started at 83 before upgrading, now up to 96 nodes across 3 different mesh networks, all at 2690 and not even a hint of a problem related to this build. THANKS!

Although one of my networks that uses the open-mesh dashboard is a bit flaky in getting its neighbor readings but I think that's an Open-Mesh issue and not related the build since its not happening on the other two.

Whats Next?? Very Happy 'N' I hope! and/or channel width configuration ability ie: set the network to work in 5mhz, 10mhz or 20mhz bands.... operator choice.. be real handy with some setups!

I've noticed a potential checkin reporting issue on repeaters, but not certain. For example I'll see huge sections of outages or down time reported, yet the uptime shows it's been up for days. Doesn't add up, it's like the new speed-test/last-hop or something is failing at times and not letting the node checkin. I'll continue to moinitor, maybe it's the open-mesh dash or something.

I would start by looking if that's even possible in the openwrt madwifi driver. I know dd-wrt has a highly tweaked version that allows such things, but not so much in openwrt. If you could find some reference it would be nice, unless Open-Mesh is going to recode the entire driver like some of these other projects your pretty much stuck with the options available in OpenWRT.

You've angered the wifi gods on Mount Olympus with your superlatives. My network was rock solid on r2690 then went all to hell today. The behaviour of nodes reported on Dashboard now makes no sense.

My little network is still rock solid

There appears to be some changes to the dashboard? Is it a reporting problem (dashboard) or a firmware problem?

While networks on 2671 show no sign of any outage, 2690 based networks have all kinds of weird outage reports when they are not actual out at all. It seems to mainly happen on repeaters that have some distance from the gatewas and leads me to believe it's something with a code change.

While this is netgear based routers it's still the same exact 2690 code,

You'll notice the bottom gateway has been up for 10 days, yet the graph on the right shows it was out. I was getting worried since the gateway was showing red, but all that time it was never even down. Now I don't know what to beleive on the top nodes either, I suspect they are not down at all either. I stuck at the moment on trying to get them to reboot since nothing sent from the dash would even reach them. The only thing I can think of is change the radio channel and hope that would cause a reboot and get them checking in again.

edit: Don't bother looking at the numbers, I sent some channel change's to try and see if the other nodes are in fact alive.

Looks like I was correct. I sent a channel change to the nodes and after the gateway's rebooted one of the repeater nodes came back online. I'm certain it was online the entire time. Now you'll see one of the Gateway's not checking in, yet on the neighbor node list it shows as active.
