jumbo frames on a RB600 with daughter card

Looking over this: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Maximum_Transmission_Unit_on_RouterBoards I see that the three ports that come with the RB600 all support some manner of "jumbo" ethernet frames. I have an RB600 with a daughter board and was wondering if the support for "jumbo" frames extended...

Re: router side ifplugd

Perhaps I was just being polite.

The primary reason I want a router side ifplugd is because Mirkotik's hotspot implementation blows.

router side ifplugd

I was curious if anyone at Mikrotik has contemplated something like a router side ifplugd. Basic theory of operation would go something like this: using the same kind daemon that runs ifplugd on clients, a router could be configured to monitor port media state changes. When a media state (link) was ...

PCC one-sidedness and dhcp add-ons

Was looking over the example config here: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/PCC#Introduction Tried it out and noticed that PCC skews the traffic 10 to 1 in favor of one wireless interface vice the other (the link quality isn't *that* different between the two). WTF? Found myself wondering if there were ...

Hi, I've got an RB532 with a two mini-pci daughter card.

Well, thanks for the info. First time I've seen versioning done that way.

BTW, is there an actual location where the firmware upgrades are staged, or are the upgrades always packaged with the RouterOS upgrades?
