We are setting up a WAN to cover a bunch of small communities and up to this point we have had no problem. In this last community, we have a router(x.x.x.225) which plugs into a Wilan wireless ethernet bridge(root=x.x.x.226,child=x.x.x.227) and the child radio plugs into an entry point on the customers network(x.x.x.228). Now the customer is complaining that he is having the problems downloading and webpages load sometimes but not others, so it sounds like he is getting dropped packets. The only really odd thing I can find is when I do a traceroute to x.x.x.227 I get 14 hops but when i do a traceroute to x.x.x.228 I get about 24 hops. The IPs in the root and child radios are for management purposes only, normally the bridge is transparent. Does anyone have any ideas?
