Hello, We have been slowly upgrading our access points from ePMP 2000 to ePMP 3000. We are also upgrading customer radios to the Force 300 series. We have noticed the Force 300 radios will find and connect to some of the ePMP 2000 access points but not all of them.
Example: We have a SE facing ePMP 2000 and we have a N facing ePMP 2000. When we upgrade a customer on the SE AP to an F300 radio the radio will only show the N facing AP in the wireless scan list.
We have checked the settings on both the AP radios and all settings match up. We are currently using 4.5.6 firmware on these AP’s and customer radios. We have been changing customers back to the F180/F200 radios to get them back on the correct AP.
Anyone else run into this issue and have any suggestions?
That’s one reason I’ve stuck with 2000-series (and F200) radios. It’s more important to have frequency flexibility than the ability to use MCS 8 and 9 on the occasional really strong link. Cambium has been really weak in its ePMP-series FCC approvals, not even authorizing the PTP550 to do anything useful, and limiting the -ac radios to the popular, noisy channels is part of the problem. Whether this is intentional or if the -ac chips are just too sloppy is a different question.
