We have a Tsunami QB20 Bridge that at the remote end connects to an Orinoco AP 600 Access Point. If there is a power failure in this location obviously both devices reboot. When both devices come up, it would appear that the QB cannot see the MAC of the AP therefore communications between the Bridge and AP functions unusually.
The QB takes about 5 seconds to boot while the AP takes 30 or so. To resolve the issue immediately the QB can be power cycled. It would seem that the QB times out waiting for layer 2 on it's interface. ???...
As a work around we have place a UPS in the location to prevent the units from powering down. Although a UPS seems logical, I still think there is an issue here?
Any thoughts? Proxim doesn't seem to even know what to do here...
