5GHz band and the UK

I am trying to set up a test link in my office using an RB512 as a 5GHz access point. All is fine when I use frequencies from the Band B range. However, Band B is not legal in the UK for wisps, only Band C (5735 to 5835). Setting the UK as the regulatory domain only shows Band B channels, which in m...

I've just had ospf apparantly die on me too. At the moment I only have two routers talking with ospf one running 2.9beta16 and the other 2.9rc5. It is the former one that seemed to "lock up". I was having a good dig around for quite a while and it suddenly seemed to come back again on its own. Mind ...

To get a true 2Mbps connection from two 1Mbps feeds you will need to be able to "bond" the lines at both ends. Thus, you will need support from your ISP to achieve the bonding at their end.

Thanks, that sorted it.

I dug out a different cable and it worked first time. 8)

Wonder what it is that allows the RB230 to work but not the RB512 etc?

In a way I'm glad to hear it is not just me!

By the way, I managed to get access to the RB512 using the mac address and winbox (hadn't realised I could do this!).

I wish :( It was the first thing I tried (well, second thing) I had a look at the settings via winbox and they seem fine, though the baud rate seems to be defaulted to auto and not 115200. Have tried to force it to 115200. 9600, 19200 and even 110 via winbox but still cannot connect via the serial p...

Serial port access with RB500

Basically, what is the secret???

I can easily get into an RB200 via the serial port but have yet to manage it in any of my RB500 units.

Basically, it sets up an ethernet tunnel over an IP network such that the networks connected at each end of the tunnel become as one (ie as if they were connected with a cable between two network switches).

To see how to set one up, look in the documentation as it is explained pretty well.

Routerboard pps?

Does anyone know what the packet per second capability of a routerboard is? I'm interested in both the 200 and the new 500 series.
