ACL wireless connections_802.11ac

Postby klindgren on Thu May 09, 2019 10:11 pm

I have an ACL that I can be discovered and communicated with via hardwire and an old Linksys-WRT54G wireless router. I am trying to bump up download speeds with a faster wireless switch, but I have run into a bit of a snag. I have tried the tp-link AC750 pocket router and ACL manager cannot discover the device. Discovery logs look the same for the linksys and the tp link routers, but no discovery in ACL manager with the tp-link router.

Any ideas, or has anyone used a good fast wireless router that can get up to 400Mbps or at least better than the 54Mbps of the old Linksys router using 802.11bgn

Does your new router support IPv6? Is it turned on? Have you correctly configured the router? Sometimes those pocket routers have the ethernet port configured as WAN by default and you need to change settings to use it as a standard LAN port. You may also need to confirm the router is in the correct operating mode (they often have access point, repeater, client; usually I think they need to be set up as access points to work correctly).

I'm not sure whether you'll actually get much faster download speeds though. I've never really looked into this and it's right on the edge of my knowledge in this area, but I'm not sure that the hardware in the dash supports faster speeds.

Hi,

The theoretical maximum that you will get out of the M1 or Dash Ethernet connections is 100mbs as they use an internal 10/100 controller. To get higher speeds than this requires the use of all 4 pairs in the ethernet connector, we only use 2 pairs.

The pocket router does support IPv6 and was turned on with a number of different settings. Nothing worked that I tried. I know there is something in that pocket router that needs to be changed, just never found it. Good to know about the theoretical max speed due to only using 2 pairs for the interface.

I gave up on the pocket router(it was really just a trial thing, never meant to go in the car). I found a nice industrial unit from Antaira Technologies (AMS-7131-AC-T ) that is good for up to 70deg C. and my link speed is showing at 144Mbps in the shop, so I am pretty good with that as an improvement over the 54Mbps consumer unit.

Will give some feedback after the first test session with the unit in the car.

I intend to follow your lead with the industrial access point. Any new news?

FWIW, I also came across a recommendation for the following product for those looking for a smaller, simpler solution.

I can not personally attest for its appropriateness.

thanks,
