Re: Speed issues, Fastpath appears to be employed in only one direction

I gave the AFs a shot and found that the link was easily able to handle 400+ Mbps. So maybe I was fooled by something regarding the BW test in Winbox? Any idea? Either way I am now running AFs for my main link ifperf is nothing that I know of, haven't tested. Here is the output of the interface stat...

Re: Speed issues, Fastpath appears to be employed in only one direction

Both directions stick at highest modulation, 6X (64QAM MIMO) with estimated throughput of 775 Mbps. Downlink (towards my CCR1016) is even a few dBs better than the opposite, 63/61 vs 65/66 dBm. So I still suspect this to be about Fastpath vs Slowpath. For info, I see the same thing on a second licen...

I tried to add a rule to the output chain, marking traffic on the actual vlan for Fasttracking.

CPU still at a few % on CCR1016, not even one single core running full.

For testing purposes I set up a PPPoE server on the VPLS interface on Router1, and a PPPoE client on the other end at Router3, and it establishes like a charm. But I am still confused about the settings for MRRU, MTU and MRU....

Many of our resellers will take part in Cebit. They need several days to set up stands, and then to take them down.
That's why week 7 is a hit! Then they have one week in between.

Re: Where Europe MUM'11 will take place?

No, because we can't make it before the Cebit, as many people need to prepare for that.
Mikrotik is Mikrotik, CeBit is CeBit. :D
Then why not go for week 7? After all, nowadays air fares account for only a fraction of the costs related to attending this event for a week.

Re: Where Europe MUM'11 will take place?

We are planning to organize the MUM in Budapest on March 10-11 (after the
Cebit) however this information is not confirmed yet.
Please, not that late Normis!
Better go for week 7 (14-20 of february), or alternatively 8 for training/Mum!
This would be more like Krakow/Prague MUMs.

Growing out of RB433AH? RB for border router.

Running a very small WISP with about 40 customers on PPPoE I can see that CPU load on the RB433AH border router/gateway easily reaches 50-70% on daytime, and even close to 100% when total throughput reaches 15-20Mbps. My setup is pretty much according to the one presented by Lutz Kleemann, Meconet, ...

Re: NEW RB711

I think the RB711 sounds like a hit for a low cost integrated CPE device.
If you need DC jack, lots of ethernet ports or MINIPCI slots, or a faster CPU go look elsewhere, there are many alternatives.

Does anybody know whether Poynting will launch a MMCX version of the Micropoynt integrated antenna?

Ok, decision is made, just ordered 2x Sierra 8775 on Ebay.

Meanwhile, maybe you guys somewhere out there who listed the option GTM-380 on the wiki could chime in reporting how you made it? :shock:

Ok, sorry.
But where is your official list of supported MiniPCIe cards?
I guess you have to make some modifications to ROS for some of the cards to work?

Which cards have you tested and verified?
What does it take to support the Option GTM380?

Of course, everything is possible. It's just that I chose among the cards that you guys listed as supported, and ordered 2 cards from Hong Kong on Ebay.

It is stuck, either at "reseting link" og "dialing out"
