For my previous request for advise! Thanks! Was a great help.
It seems I got my WRAP outdoor board all working (sort of: see NodeJTX
log on MW page), however it seems the MadWifi drivers have a known
bug/problem with the SR2 card I am using (the other card CM9 no issues),
that generates at Hardware error requirement a reboot to fix (usually
within 20 minutes of the last reboot).
So my options at this point are:
Option 1) advise from anybody else who has a similar problem with
MadWifi drivers/voyage[0.5.0] on how to fix this in software[eg iwpriv
settings maybe?] ? (and no, while I used to be a dab hand at writing
hardware level device drivers, I havn't done such for 12 years)
Option 2) Get a replacement NIC (b/g preferable) that is preferable
200mw that is compatible with MadWifi drivers/voyage[0.5.0] to drive my
omni antenna. Anybody with experience on which one would be
suitable/known to work in this combo? worst case, I will just get
another CM9 card, but its power is lower than I would like.
Option 3) open to suggestions....
I would like to get this done as quick as I can as I would like to get
my mast up and running by the end of the week.
