hi,
I'm using two Litestations sr71 with microtik r52N miniPCI card as external AP and I'm experiencing an annoying problem: wifi N signal drops randomly. Sometime it works for a week, sometime it works for just two hours. Everytime it happens, I need to restart/reapply the unit to get the wifi to work again.
I tried many firmware revisions, from 02-17-11-r16214 to 06-14-11-r17201 with no success.
Can someone help me?

I have just upgraged my Litestations too, coz I have the same problem, but I used a cronjob to check and reset the wifi interface automatically.

I hope this revision will work without freezes.

Sash, are you sure this is not ath9k?

The problem seems to be solved! Very Happy

The wifi signal is now stable and it runs since 3 days without any kind of freezes, on all my 5 Litestations, which before was impossible.

Unfortunately I have also some x86 boards (alix 3d2/3) with AR9220 and I still have this bug, since there are no firmware update available for these units Crying or Very sad
