Re: very different CCQ

I have to question that. Maybe the level of intereference I get is so strong it shows up, but I can tell you for certain, mine shows noise and there isn't anyone else in my area that even knows how to set up a 900MHz 802.11 card. I'm picking up noise from below the 900MHz band, licensed frequency. ...

Re: Dual WAN configuration

I would like to add a DSL at the site, and use it as a failover. I would like to have the router ping our gateway on WAN1 and as long as it is up, route through WAN1. If the router loses connectivity then fail over to WAN2 until WAN1 comes back up. Can the MikroTik handle 2Mbps sustained NAT'd traf...

Re: very different CCQ

Prism chipsem doesn't show noise floor correctly and it always shows -106dBm as noise floor. It very possible that your clients recieve much noise from other networks and of course from other radio applications that use 2,4 GHZ frequencies. Change channel to less busy to avoid low CCQ if you have an...

Re: how to avoid mac scanning programs

To avoid mac scanners inside your network you should use BROUTE feature of your MT. It cause that all packets from wireless interface are being forwarded to defined MAC address of the router. So potential attackers or user who wants to scan your network can just get only mac of the router - one mach...

If you really want to establish high bandwidth connection there should be Line Of Sight even in 900MHZ or 2.4GHZ. NLOS works good when you have enough reflections and used 900MHZ frequencies.

VLANs aren't perfect solution in my opinion (bandwidth decrase). Better way is to buy multiport cards with particular ports managment (much faster switching than VLANs, more speed). Routerboard has been introduced multiple port cards - but the price ;D

I have quite small network - over 10 RB's (133,153,x86.. etc. etc.) and many redundant paths to the one point. The problem is that RSTP doesn't discover ports as alternate port to the root bridge, so I guess it cause some kind of loop - in some RBs all interfaces transmit data TX ( few mbits) but do...
