EAP 245: losing packets: recommended interval of rebooting?
Hello ! I just went through my EAP245's and was shocked to find out that the majority of them are losing packets, like this:
PING 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168): 56 data bytes
Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=2 ttl=117 time=16.405 ms
64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=3 ttl=117 time=12.990 ms
Request timeout for icmp_seq 4
64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=5 ttl=117 time=10.515 ms
64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=6 ttl=117 time=10.402 ms
Request timeout for icmp_seq 7
Request timeout for icmp_seq 8
64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=9 ttl=117 time=10.822 ms
Someone complained that the video conference didn't work well. This would explain this.
It was easily fixed by just rebooting them. I had let them run for about 9 months. Omada Controller is showing no sign of packet-loss: the graph for drop rate was always zero. I don't understand why it wasn't showing anything.
The problem is, I cannot find it out unless I check them one by one in person. It seems to be a good idea to reboot them regularly: I will just find a chance when nobody is using that AP. Could anyone please tell me how often I should reboot them ? Once a month? I will appreciate your advice !
