Longterm stability on NanoBridge M5's
Description

In 2014 our company began deploying Ubiquiti Products in replacement of Cisco Bridges we previous deployed after extensive testing and trial deployments. We recently checked the uptime/stats for the first set of Ubiquiti Bridges deployed in a "production" capacity on the network. The bridges were only a short range deployment extending a sites network across a construction site and carpark (~250M's). The bridges have remained online and connected for a total of 555 days continuously now with no dropouts.

Hi @danewman,

 

Beautiful acheivement! One peice of advice. Lower the TX power on the client of this device. The signal strenght is too high, recommended is around -50.

MAC filter is NOT a security measure at all! It is easy to find out which mac addresses are allowed to access the AP (eg. using airodump-ng) then run macchanger utility to change wlan mac address to the desired one to access the filtered network.

 

WEP also worth nothing, it can be cracked in 2 mins.

 

Use WPA2-AES with random key!
