User submitted question:
I'm in the process of setting up a wireless link between two of my buildings about 2 miles apart, using the Trangolink 45 with built-in antenna. This will be my 5th link in my organization I'm setting up, so by now, I'm fairly familiar with the workings of the system.
This new link I'm working on has already established an assocation and I achieved some 35MBPS link-speed. However, the association got lost about 2 days later.
At the remote unit, the power is 0, and no matter what I'm trying to set it to, I get a failure. When I enter the command
I see the dots moving ..., but in a few seconds I get a failure message. Same if I try to set some negative value, like -2dbm. When I run the sysinfo 2 command, it tells me that the radio is receiving 19.3Vdc from the power injector, while the normally working master unit is showing 23.4Vdc.
So apparently, the remote radio is not getting enough power from the power injector, and I'm assuming that because of this, it can't change the power setting to anything other than 0dbm.
I've tested the power injector with a voltmeter, and it shows correct output (24.6Vdc). Currently I have an engineer testing the Cat 6 between the power injector and the radio, but if that doesn't show any problem, it will boil down to the radio itself mis-behaving.
What steps do you suggest I should do?
This pair of radios were purchased in Sept 2012, and were never in use before. They were first unpacked about 2 weeks ago.
Please, let me know.
