Re: Two 2.4GHz WiFi modules on one RB hex Lite (??)

BaseBox 2 allows to you add an mini pcie card for Wi-Fi. I'm a really happy user of it. BaseBox 2 + R11e-2HPnD is the combination that you need. Don't forget the u.FL to RPSMA pigtails (ACSMAUFL) and MIMO antennas. Mikrotik says that mANT LTE 5o works from 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz, it should works. Thank...

Re: Access Point and Sniffer on one Wlan 2.4

I have checked and yes, it is legal, As i do not save and display any information about client, also all info are faceless/impersonal (no any phone numbers/names/age/etc is tied to the MAC )
MACs on android, at least at my tests are 100% real. iOS around 70-90% depends in version of iOS.

Re: Two 2.4GHz WiFi modules on one RB hAP ac Lite (??)

Got this USB WiFi device. Mikrotik recognizes USB device (as any other USB device) but no devices at Port tab.
Is there a way to upload drivers/ or build them on a Mikrotik device?
Maybe some kind of "root" terminal, where are not only mikrotik commands but linux as well?
