Ive got a holiday park/campground using ubiquity gear. some m2's and rockets. The rockets always seem to crash (excuse the pun) with loads of users connected to them 15+. however the m2's are fine. theres two m2's in wds bridge mode on ch2. theres 3 rockets in wds bridge mode on ch9. one of the m2's are cabled to one of the rockets and the other m2 is cabled to billing gateway. question is why do the rockets alway have problems with 15+ users? the m2's never have problems . ive tried updating the firmware. turning one off and the same problem occurs. surprisingly im using cheaper tplink gear in bridge mode at two other sites, and they never have any problems.

I have never had them crash on me but have you tried a factory reset and set them up again?

Hi are the rockets older v3 models or running v5 air max firmware. If older units then maybe that's the massive capability diff.

Sounds like something with your setup.

They are rocket m2's, I updated the firmware from v5.5 to v5.5.4.  I never did install these they were already there when I started on this site, one rocket is behind a double story building mounted next to the edge of tin roof with no line of sight to the other rocket it is bridging with.  Signal is around 65% on this one and im assuming this is part of the problem.  The other two are also in close proximity to each other about 50m.  Even with no users connected, there are latency issues.

Definately sounds like your setup.

With such a poor signal you could try and alternative data rate and see if that works. I've been beta testing 5.5.4 since last year but it still has a few strange things in it.
