Befor about 9 months I installed 20 sites Linking to 2 Omnis in Diversity mode in a 6km radius and the network was working fine with WEP enabled using 4.25H firmware, when I added 5 more sites (using 4.25G Firmware) the Root bridge started to reboot every 2 minute after deathenticating them, thaught about the overloading and disconnected the wired network but the same result happened i Even changed the bridge but i ended up with the same every time...?
We recommend to use the same firmwre on all the bridges in the network. We have latest 12.0.T firmware for 350 series bridges that we recommend to use it. Pl. visit following url to download it from cco.
The firmaware I was reffering to is the radio firmware which means that I'm using 11.07 on my old 20 sites Network and 11.23 on the new additional 5 sites.
Upgrading to the new firmware might just do the trick, but a question rises what if I upgraded the Root-Bridge only, to 12.01T Firmware version, would it still associate with both firmware versions (25 sites), and would it be advisable then to distribute the firmware, or shall I do both networks seperatly (Old, then New), or leave it as it is if it works with both versions?
I Updated the Main to 12.01T and found out the problem, 12.01T firmware recognised the old 20 sites with firmware 11.07 but did not recognise the devices with firmware 11.23T and caused the device to reboot every 30 seconds but when I upgraded the 5 new sites from 11.23T to 12.01T my problem was solved and all 11.07 and 12.01T are seeing each other and I can distribute the firmware now with no trouble and without intruption or rebooting. Probably had to do with a bug in the software, which i think might be in the STP, But the problem is solved thanx for you fast reply.
