Multiple serial ports

Hello - this question is just sheer curiosity (I have no plans) - if someone wanted to attach a bunch of serial ports to Mikrotik for a dial-up modem pool, is x86 the only option? Or is there a way to use some equipment and connect to a CCR or an 1100/etc?

Also, CPU utilization starts growing (and going) crazy when a peer is lost, or full routes are being sent to a peer. Also noticed that routes come in pretty slowly. Not certain if the slow routes is due to RB1000/RB1100 hardware. Quagga on x86 runs far better, even on slower computers.

GPS & RouterBoard

Hello, I have an old RouterBoard 112 that I haven't ever used and I didn't want it to go to waste. I wanted to setup my own NTP time server that derives the clock signal from GPS. I have a GPS board that connects to the Serial0 port. I went online to the MikroTik site and used a new level 4 license ...

Re: Mikrotik causes worldwide net instability!?

I agree - but I thought I would post what I found so the fine folks at Mikrotik could take a look - maybe there is a bug that should be repaired, maybe not. Just thought I'd be a good Mikrotik user and report back to the 'mothership' that is Mikrotik! If it matters, I've been running BGP for nearly ...

Mikrotik causes worldwide net instability!?

Hello - Just would like to state that I really do like Mikrotik and use it nearly everywhere on my networks. Here is a link that I found on Slashdot.org today.

Have a read - maybe someone will understand it better than I.

RB493 MTU Limitation? BUG?

Hello, I have purchased several RB493 boards and when I try to enter an MTU higher than 1518 on an ethernet interface I get a "Couldn't change interface - could not set mtu" message. My RouterBoard 1000 and RB500's routers support the desired MTU of 1596 that I am looking for. I am connecting these ...

Re: 2009 and Mikrotik

ADSL mini-PCI card anyone? I would love to see a ADSL or ADSL2+ interface that can be housed right in a router board enclosure. I know many use MT for wireless, but a bunch of us use it for strictly hard wired networks. A lot of our customers or DSL users.

More serial ports would be nice too.

Confirmed - I am having the same difficulty with my system. The router takes a considerable time to load and the keyboard at the login prompt isn't responsive until about a minute.

Maybe there is a setting that needs adjustment in the BIOS.
