  1. well, i am not familiar with the ecb3500, that's quite an oldie you have there ^.^ , it is just a hunch, but as you mentioned that multiple devices are behind the Client bridge, '(among other devices,) a media renderer ', Do all of the other devices running behind the bridge, function without problems? as all the devices behind the bridge would be registered to the router with the same MAC address as the MAC address of the AP running in client bridge. This was causing problems in various installations that I worked with. Especially as you mention that the network music player comes online on the app and functions properly. until a certain point where it is lost. In my case, it was because multiple devices behind the bridge started to lose IP addresses because there was already one device registered to the router's ARP table with the MAC address. After changing the bridge to WDS, all the clients behind the bridge were passing through the bridge with their own MAC addresses attached to all the packets It might show what is causing the issue by just running a test using WDS AP mode on the ECB1750 and WDS station on the ecb3500. (create backups of both units before testing, so you can easily load back in the live environment settings).
  2. @saddleback, problem with WDS links is that those still havent been generalised by the vendors. So the style for building up the WDS link with engenius devices can be (slightly) different compared to other brands. That is why all vendors, including EnGenius, recommend to always create WDS links between same brands, and if possible, use the same models. Or at least with the exact same chipsets. for client bridge, it is normal for this behavior. That is where the big difference is located between client bridge(CB) and wds station. CB mode was developed to work as a legacy solution, so you can connect a wired-only device, to your wireless network. Actually, the CB device can be compared to an oversized WLAN Adapter. what is the feedback that you get when running ping tests from the device behind the client bridge to your main router? just to clarify, both access point and connected client are using different IP addresses, but are registered with the same MAC address? If so, which firmware are you currently running on your ENH500? 1.5.6? or 1.5.74?
  3. whats the setup you are trying to run dalectv? maybe we can help if you can share more detailed info about what ur trying to achieve.
  4. Hi Raz, max amount I normally suggest per radio would be around 40. you probably will be able to have a much higher maximum, but I rather like to base network installations on real-world values. (seen for instance, ENS660AP with over 130 clients connected simultaneously, with peaks of 120 concurrent clients connected to the 2.4GHz). Eventually I had to set a lower threshold for the band steering, in order to keep the AP up and running. now it has been running with about 80 clients on the 2.4, and 50 clients on the 5GHz. Luckily those are almost all tablets and smartphones with low bandwidth. And it would become a complete different story if they all would start watching different streams at HD quality. ^.^
  5. to which firmware did you upgrade to? and have you tried resetting the AP to factory default settings after upgrading? Wouldn't be the first time I had to reset an AP back to factory settings after upgrading to latest FW.
  6. Hi Piet and Budgie, what is the exact problem you are having? For instance, which product is sending out the uPnP broadcasts? and do you know which protocol is used by affected device? As for instance, microsoft's SMB protocol is being passed correct. If it about a device which broadcasts a different packet type for it to be able to be found by an application or an 'app' for phone or tablet, it is possible that the manufacturer is using a different type of discovery packets which for some unknown reason is not passing through. @Budgie, couple of questions: first one: can you let us know your region/country? The bridge you use is a WDS bridge I assume? if its a Client bridge connection to the ECB3500, then I understand that after a while the connection goes down for most devices behind the bridge. As the CB mode was and still is developed as a legacy solution to connect a single wired-only device to a wireless network (main reason is because CB is not a transparent link, which the WDS is). Easily said, CB is developed to only pass one IP address through. Seen that issue a lot of times. do note, that there could be a problem that needs solving, but I believe EnGenius team will need a bit more information about the setup.
  7. Hi Apex, the client router mode does indeed only support wired connection. As the WLAN is solely reserved for the 'WAN' connection, and it is not possible for clients to connected wirelessly to the ENH202. easily said, the wireless part of the AP is functioning on the WAN side for internet access, then you have the NAT between WLAN and LAN part, where the LAN part is behind the NAT, for the local network. (IP addresses are being handed out from ENH202 to all clients wired to the AP's LAN ports).
  8. Hi there, seems there is still some information missing that you haven't shared yet. I did the same installation at 5 different sites, and haven't had the error on any of the locations. how about your internet settings? have you set your network connections with a static IP address, out of range of the local network? do have internet access when you run the installer? What about your security software such as your firewall and antivirus. Have you tried disabling those first, and then retry the installation?
  9. on which part do you get the error message? happens when trying to start the VM image to boot up? you state you tried wifi and Wired, Do you refer to configuring the required bridge for the image to be loaded? Can you post a screenshot from when the issue occurs, and a screenshot of the configuration that you tried
  10. Just as Tmac mentioned, if you only use ezMaster with the compatible APs, all APs will keep on working except for the local configs running on the ezMaster, such as the captive portal function. (So if you have a customer with a dynamic WAN address who needs captive portal, it can cause downtime if his WAN address is changed by his ISP, as link to ezmaster will go down when running outside of the local network. (From experience I found out this can take up to 2 or 3 hours of down-time for captive portal -side). In such situations I can recommend to use an EWS switch on-site, but do note that if you let the controller -part being managed by outdoor ezMaster, the local controller won't take over the CP part when connection goes down. I have heard that they are still busy with development to create some sort of a redundant system, whereas the local controller will automatically take over when ezMaster becomes unavailable.
  11. Hi all, i am aware that the ezmaster image can be deployed to vmware and virtualbox, but are there any known complications when converting vmware version to a vSphere , azure, or ESXi version? I have tested already with ESXi, and it works so far without problems. Still have to convert the image to vSphere version, as well as with azure.
  12. Is there any news or status update about the cloud-based version of ezMaster?
