Re: [Feature Request] Fan Control options for devices that have them

Hello, Thank you for the positive confirmation. I would like to note that I don't mind if it takes time to arrive; take your time and do it proper. Is it possible however to tell us if we'll be able to run the device purely passively, let's say up to 60-70°C or so? Will hysteresis be an option/confi...

[Feature Request] Fan Control options for devices that have them

Hello, I am an owner of a CRS328-24P-4S+RM for a couple of months now and I'm overly satisfied by the device apart from one thing.. the fan noise. I understand that a device which can dish out as much as 450 Watts of power in such a small form factor, has correspondingly large cooling needs, but I f...

A fix regarding 5170-5330MHz 160MHz has been made and will be released in the next beta (current is 6.46beta6, so next public beta release).
The same applies to upcoming Stable/Long-term versions
You guys have been stepping up your game and it deserves to be heard. Thank you for everything. :)

Re: Why channel 50 isn't selectable in the 160Mhz band?

In RouterOS, you don't specify the channel, but rather the frequency. So for example, to get channel 36, you set Frequency 5180 (channel-width=20/40/80/160mhz-Ceeeeeee) There appears to be some confusion still. Let me clarify once more that I know that in RouterOS we don't set them via the numerica...

Mikrotik does not use the AC channel naming but gives you control where your 20MHz control channel is positioned. E.g.: AC 160Mhz "channel" 50 can be set on Mikrotik by specifying channel 36 and "Ceeeeeee" or channel 40 and "eCeeeeee" or ... channel 64 and "eeeeeeeC" You all appear to be mistaking ...

Usually "Ceeeeeee" or "XXXXXXXX", however shifting the layout further only serves to increase the frequency range (with a maximum possible at 5640-5700).
