RocketM2 PtMP ping spikes and noise floor question

hi guys  . i have a small ptmp network with a rocket m2 AP and nanostations loco and nanobridge CPEs. lately mostly in the night times i get periods of time that the pings go crazy and the noise floor flactuates. can someone give some help on how to counter this? i played around with narrow and wider channels but there is no change . kappanetwork.jpg

Re: RocketM2 PtMP ping spikes and noise floor question

Operating in 2.4 GHz, outdoors with a 40 MHz wide channel is nearly impossible.

 

1) Run airview as @UBNT-SNK suggested to find the cleanest spot, then try reducing channel size to 20 or 10 MHz wide.

 

10 MHz wide is all we are ever able to use with 2.4

 

2) Make things work better overall by improving the signal of the weaker clients.

Can you run an airView scan on the radios when this occurs?
