I've been getting these errors for ages now. It's the same on 2 different ntl 200's. One with sigma and the other with the original firmware. The mac's are working perfectly.

It tries all the upstream channels then it restarts. My bro's CM a few miles away connects using channel 5, mine only tries 1-4 could that be an issue? The weird thing is, sometimes it works.

Here is the log:
