BR-340 Associations problems

I have a outdoor wireless link bridge-to-bridge. the distance between the sites is 8 km. the power level of the link is 51% (trans.) 56% (recep.) quality of signal is 70% (out) 76%(in). the line of sight is perfect.

My problem is, the bridges loose the connections every day, but, I don't change the configuration. The SSID is the same, WEP key too.

Somebody can help me to fix this problem?

Do you know how many times per day it drops, and at what time? There may be a specific evant causing interference - or even a power failure at one bridge.

I once had a problem like that. A link that had been working for months suddenly stopped working every day between 09:00 and 18:00. I suppose there was some kind of interference that I could not identify . Changing the channel was not enough I had to change the root bridge to repeater and of course the repeater bridge to root. Its been working ever since. Hope this might be of some help.

Re: BR-340 Associations problems

I had a similar problem.

The problem we identified were faulty antennas (Yagi). We replaced the antennas and they work fine now.

A couple of our techs had attempted to turn the antennas and popped off the outer cover and ben the actual metal antenna inside the cylinder.
