Re: v6.41 [current]

For the new bridge implementation, I assume this does not affect the wAP ac access points? Or do they have a hardware switch built in?

Re: Mikrotik vs Ubiquiti Unifi

You say "network cable" is not present, but I would assume their are phone lines ran through out the building? You could very well buy a used VDSL DSLAM off of ebay or something and push 200mbs+ links to a remote AP plugged into a DSL modem. Or even have one DSL modem per floor handling an aggregate...

Re: google maps gives me wrong country when using wifi.

Location information on any webpage comes from a call to the javascript geolocation library. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Navigator/geolocation Both mozilla and google have their own database of "known" wifi access point locations.

Re: Please add HTTPS support on mikrotik.com

Just to point it out, the RouterOS files are all signed and you can't make your own packages, or replace them with fake ones. They would simply not be accepted in the software. This. People do the same thing on the Debian mailing lists every few months, whine about the fact that the debian repos ar...

Re: WMM power save

Check this thread for suggestions: Wifi keeps mobile device awake? [keepalive packets] Yes, I found some more info after I made this thread. I have turned off keepalive and set the wpa2 group key period to 1 hour. That has helped. The screen shot from the battery chart on my phone, the far left is ...

Normally overnight I only loose about 2% battery with my old access point. Now with the wAP, I am lo...
