Mangle Rule Order

Hi Guys, Just want to double check. I'm trying to sorted out a basic QoS setup on our network but I'm unsure about my ordering in my mangle list.

Re: Max clients per Sector

With NSTREME 40-50 is the MikroTik recommendation. I agree, more than that and ping times go really high.
Oh ok. Do they have a recommendation without NSTREME?

Max clients per Sector

Hi all. What is the max amount of clients you connect on any 1 sector? I was taught as a best practice to never put more than 30 clients per sector as this is considered as "overloading" the sector and the clients signal strengths and CCQs would start being affect negatively. Is there any truth to t...

Re: Maximum Amount Of RAM for Mikrotik / Web-Proxy

Hi All,

I know this topic is over a year old, but I would like to know if this apparent 2gig RAM cap in Mikrotik is still applicable, or if it has changed at all?

We are also going to be using the web proxy and would like to put in as much RAM as Mikrotik 3.28 can handle.

Re: QoS with IPIP Tunnels

Thanks that sorted me out.

I just setup conn and packet marks for both up and down. Then switched my Total Download queue from one of the ethernet interfaces to the gobal-out interface.

Thanks again.
