edit me Edit
Hmm.. Seen this when mixing different dev's in same mesh. There where problems with the certificates not renewing properly in dev84,85. Try 'resetkey' and and/or "mesh routing IPsec: No" to see if it helps Also check you don't have any duplicate CELLID's on the nodes.

Tunnel type ID Edit
iwconfig wlang power auto
Sometime I also got similar situation. If your network has two identical cell id (
third octet 192.168.x) then you may have this problem. But if all your nodes under
the same account, wiana should warn you such conflicting cell id problem.
This in general made me think that said node has problem establishing vtun with
gateway for some reason. Sometime rebooting solved the problem if it is not cell
id problem. Also check to see if tunneltype set IP, not PPP. Your problem seems tunneltype
setting to me. Concerning node speed tests, other than the signal strength, what is the SNR?
I changed radio speeds down to 2 MBps/s and got better performance. But never got the
same speed with the node which is direct linked to gw. Second and third nodes are always
slower. Expect 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 speeds after the gateway node.
My note this problem is solved with iwconfig wlang power auto and using the
new broadunblock command and allowing automated signal testing on in wiana.
Another solution is the opposite set all cards manually to max power. You must
try both setups to see what works the best.
Where did he change the speeds
Subject: [MeshAPuser] Searching for a gateway to use...
I'm having a performance problem with some of my repeater nodes after the second hop.
I'm using Dev 88. I clear all blocknodes and let the MeshAP mesh. I then create
blocknodes for MeshAP that have poor quality (both MeshAP gets a blocknode to each other.)
This, believe or not, stabilizes the network so that I can ping and ssh between each MeshAP.
I having a problem with some of my repeater getting messages every minute, such as:
Broadcast Message from http:/...To=root@meshbox
(somewhere) at 19:04 ...
Conflicting CELLids Edit
ANSW: No conflicting CellIds.. I have made sure they are all differenet, and I have all my nodes under 1 wiana account. Have you got two nodes with identical CELLID1 values? If you have meshboxes registered to different accounts with conflicting values, Wiana won't warn you. The CELLID1 value is what is used as the 3rd octet of the tunnel IP address. If there is a conflict, the tunnel will be recreated pointing to a different meshbox, and so you will see the tunnel going up and down all the time.

Serious tunnel problem Edit
Check: cat /etc/wiana.settings | grep "LOCKTO" Does it show the right gateway adress?
I don't understand this, and it's a really annoying problem. I've got a number of meshboxes with this problem intermittently, but one that's particularly bad right now. This meshbox has a route to the gateway machine, but won't establish a tunnel with it, and so can't communicate with the Internet. The gateway is listed in "reporter" as being three hops away, which is correct. I can ping the gateway's wiana address, 18.104.22.168 with no packet loss. Every minute I get a broadcast message "Attempting to connect gateway 22.214.171.124". TUNNELTYPE is IP in wiana.settings.
