Re: ubiquiti SRX 300mW 802.11a/b/g MMCX card
reception issue in Linux. Both OS’s see the card fine. I bought the optional MMCX clip on antenna

For the Linux issue, here’s what our customer had to type in to get it to work (using the external antenna):

“sysctl -w dev.wifi0.diversity=0″

which sets the antenna diversity to 0 (that made all the difference, vast improvement).

From what I’ve been reading there still may be a small issue with some networks not showing up, I’m sure they will correct this with a driver update at some point. The card works quite nice now, and picks up nets with a good signal. Also, I disabled the built in wifi card in my laptop, as I’m sure this was causing interference.
