Yup. And here in Montana we hit the -40F lower limit industrial/automotive
grade components provide. Most Proxim APs go south right at or near that
temperature. Also had one Cisco that would do the same, and don't really
have experience with anything else in this extreme winter climate. You've
often got other problems/possibilities too though... There's the batteries
(big suspect there!!) the antennae might be icing, your cabling might also
be having some sort of issue. Ice met/drip causing the antenna to ground
out has happened too.
