SBG6580 and Guest Networks

Uncategorized Add comments

I’ve had a few problems with the SBG6580 — and some on the guest network setup, so they’re not obvious while it’s just me.

Today I had to back out the dual-channel setup — a client who was connected just fine on the Primary SSID could not get internet access through a good-signal connection on the secondary SSID. Dropping out Bridging and Dual-Channel (40MHz) (Wireless->Basic page (the link works if you have your default subnet configured)) resolves.

Frustrating. I know both dual-channel and secondary/guest SSID are unusual features, but lacking any ability to raise exceptions (ie SNMP traps or polling — although rsyslog is offered) I’m not 100% satisfied with this. Why sacrifice features commonly available on other platforms to provide new, flashy ones?
