Some old posts are going...


Some old posts will be disappearing in the next few days. For example, this post, from 23 November 2013; saying that firmware R2.3 is new will go but the information about Digital Voting will remain as a new, separate, post.

  1. Hi Wayne, wondering if you could help me out with our CAP+ system. We have a 5voice+1data MTR3000 setup(NA 800mhz)and running fine on firmware 02.30.02 for 6+ years. One of them failed and we only had a 02.40.02 version - we swapped it and the repeater worked for a 10-30 mins then the system started skipping that repeater (we monitor all traffic through GW3), and it only worked if we did a reset, again for a short time. Then we updated all repeaters to 02.40, and 02.07.00.04 (latest) and same thing, basically Peer 3&4 are not routing calls after a while, if we reset they work but again for a short time (we noticed getting busies but not registering in GW3 as the slots don't show full traffic, the radio emits a busy tone probably on the skipping repeater. Nothing else changed, our routers work fine, RDAC sees everything with green lights, but we are a little baffled by the behavior. Motorola support points to router, NAT issues or cables, but that doesn't make sense if they all worked fine on the 2.30 version.
    Appreciate any input you may have!
    Cheers!

    1. Are *all* the repeaters on the same firmware version?

    2. If they are not, make sure they are on exactly the same firmware. There were some changes made on the IP side around R2.3.

    3. If they are then make sure the new repeater is configured the same as the other repeaters (except frequencies; IP address and radio ID). Also check that the RSSI Threshold is set to the same value as the other repeaters.

  2. Thanks Wayne, all the repeaters are on the latest firmware, they are configured the same (diff freq, IP..etc) as mentioned it was working fine before. We did play with the RSSI thresholds but that didn't seem to do anything, we started getting interference's and the repeaters started to turn off. We suspect it could be the router (Netgear FVS338)6+ years old and it may not be fully compatible with the new firmware? - will try a switch as a next step...

  3. Wayne, we figured out the issue! It was the Rest Channel TOT, we realized the old 2.3 firmware did not have it - we set them all to Disabled and its working through all repeaters now.

    1. Ah, that's interesting!

      Problems like these have more learning value than any classroom can produce :-)
