The AREDN Project Announces the Release of its Beta Test v3.16.1.0b01

This release focuses on improving data rates and node manageability. The following changes have been made from our previous, v3.15.1.0, production release:

  • Added transmit data throughput values (TxMbps) for Current Neighbors on the Mesh Status screen
  • Decreased SSID Beacon rate from ~10x to ~2x a second. Providing more RF for data on links with multiple nodes, especially on 900MHz and 2.4GHZ at 5MHz wide channels
  • Added a user-specified time zone and NTP server on the Setup page
