I’m struggling with an issue on the Sierra Wireless MC7304 where I’ve only been able to find a single communication channel between a Mikrotik routerboard and the modem - channel 2. I’ve tried all other combinations, but channel 2 is the only one that responds. I can only use this channel for either data or info. Not both at the same time.
I would like to have access to the info channel in order to read information like the signal strength on a regular basis. At the moment I have a script that periodically breaks the connection, reads the signal strength and then re-builds the connection. But this process results in down-time of a minute for all clients, which is a pain.
Does anybody have a suggestion for how to overcome this problem?
