Hello all, 2.4ghz Rocket 2AC with 8.5.7 on it. Majority of connected devices XWs right now. All 6.1.7.
I have one that is less than a mile away, remote signal (as reported by the Rocket) is very hot at -36 or so.
I cannot get this number to go higher - it won't budge. I have tried lowering the output power at the radio (its at 5dbi). Also have tried automatic power control at the rocket (not sure if this works with older hardware). The first column "signal" on the rocket station list does change, but the remote signal does not. I keep getting the warning when I mouse over the number.
Oh I currently have it on Flexible (new). Perhaps that is the problem?

Which device exactly is connected to rocket with higher signal?
So you're lowering TX Power on Rocket and RX signal doesn't change on your remote device?
did you see this also on WebGUI of remote device?
At least it should affect your other clients signal... can you confirm?
btw: you want to get the signal lower not higher!
-50 dBm < -36 dBm
We all work for KUDOs here.

Is a Nanostation M2. I thought it was an XW model, but is an XM.
No, I was following the advice on the info popup that keeps showing up on the R2AC screen. It says to "please reduce the trasmit power at the station" which was what I tried.
I do not want to lower the transmit power of the R2AC. Because it would affect all connected stations.
Yes, I realize I had the signal terms higher and lower reversed. It was late...
