Re: Help! RB230 - unable to boot ROS from CF card

Yes, you can see it close to the end of the console output, I selected "i" for IDE and then "x" to reboot. However the board (bios) does not recognize the CF.

Re: Help! RB230 - unable to boot ROS from CF card

Thank you Normis.

As I wrote, installing ROS on the CF goes all fine, but it won't boot from it, despite JP2 is closed.
Can you please comment on the console output above?

Trying another CF was mentioned. Is it possible that one functioning card is bootable, while another is not?

Re: Help! RB230 - unable to boot ROS from CF card

Sorry for nagging you, but as this is a board still delivered by MT there must be somebody within MT or among users that has been playing around with it enough to be able to help?

Unfortunately I'm stuck on this... :(

Re: Backhaul speed XR5 100%CCQ

RB333 should be the way to go but in my opinion they fall short of being a backhaul class board. Build quality is poor and you are forced to use non-release software.
Can you please explain in which way the RB333 is "poor build quality" and what consequences it might have? Just curious.

Well, it is actually closed....:-( RB230 is new to me, I need a confirmation that it is able to boot from CF! If all the installation using Netinstall goes fine, then the card must be ok? Then, why won't it boot from it, and how can it help repeating the procedure on another CF card? Any tips? I don...

Re: HELP! Clients continously connecting/disconnecting!

bomber67..

I tried the link you posted but there is no page there, can you tell us what you did.

I figured out that upgrading the CPEs to the latest firmware did the trick. The CPEs are Linksys WRT54G (Broadcom) and at that time "latest" meant Talisman 1.3.1.

Help! RB230 - unable to boot ROS from CF card

Folks, I'm struggling to boot my RB230 from the CF card. Installed ROS using NetInstall (Etherboot), have tried both 2.9.50 and 3.0rc13. The router recognizes the CF card and appears to install ROS properly, but I'm unable to boot. As CF is recognized, why isn't it listed as a boot option in BIOS? A...

My RB333 has been running for 29 days now without problems. 3x R52, one 5GHz and two on 2.4. PPPoE server and firewall. Initially I had big problems with frequent reboots...

Lot of packets being dropped due to INVALID connection

I've setup a firewall (ROS 3.0 rc10) and I can see a lot of packets being dropped that appears to belong to connections that I consider being "legal" i.e. connections to/from non-blocked ports, initiated by a user on the LAN side of the router. For instance, if I open a newspaper webpage, I can see ...

Ok, for let's say 5 clients?
If a login attempt is unsuccessful, the client will try again and again I assume?

I've been warned about running PPPoE server on the "lighter" routerboards, as they're not powerful enough. What is the limiting factor, CPU or available memory for running the PPP package?

RB411 have extra frequency 2.3-2.5 ghz ?
Need small cheap CPE on 5-6 ghz no on full of noise 2.4ghz.
Routerboards do not carry radios onboard themselves, the radios are added as MiniPCI cards.
To be able to use a specific MiniPCI under ROS, Mikrotik must provide drivers for it.
