Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

CCQ reporting was changed to be more accurate in 6.1.8.  What other symptoms were you seeing (other than CCQ)?

 

Enhancements:
- Improved CCQ calculation and reporting

The change to the CCQ reporting does not impact your actual link performance.

Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

All that has been changed in v6.1.8 is how the CCQ figure is calculated. Not the actual, measurable, customer-visible performance of your links. If you run a throughput test, you should see the same performance regardless of v6.0.4 or v6.1.8.

Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

my bro , i understand that ubiquiti has made changes over the CCQ but to the WORSE,
really what is your point, i tell you 6.1.8 frimware is wrong and shouldn't have to get published in public!
next update should improve the stability of the link, thats what matters for us

Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

My point is the actual performance of your link has not changed. If you run a throughput test, you should see the same figures. Comparing the CCQ in previous versions to the CCQ in v6.1.8 is irrelevant.

Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

I've seen mixed results with 6.1.8, however, I upgraded a rocket XW AP from 6.1.7 to 6.1.8 and saw DFS radar detected on several of the 5.5 channels, causing the AP to set the channel on 5.745 which was really a poor choice, only 2 of 6 clients would reassociate. Tried rebooting 3 times and it did the same thing. Site Survey did not show anything in these freq, Downgraded to 6.1.7 and it stays on 5.5 ghz and all the clients reassociated. Site survey on 6.1.7 shows 3 sites in the 5.5 to 5.6 freq, but all are -80 and above.

DFS in v6.1.8 is a separate issue that is being worked on.

Re: dont update to 6.1.8 XW or XM

My installers used the CCQ level to determine if a connection is OK. With this "correction" my installers feel that their installations are less than the minimum authorized quality and abort the installations.

@luizgodoy  You should use Airmax quality/capacity, ccq and signal as a qualtiy guage.

 

The ccq reporting change is more accurate.  The further you are from 100%, the more re-transmissions are happening on the link.
