Re: Multiple AP and cannot connect (Signal Strength > 80db)

rgroothuis,
I would not make the effort in 2020 to install in such complex environment a 2.4Ghz only system.
To me dual band would make more sense here. Remember you have only 3 non overlapping channels in 2.4G
which are shared among everybody!!! (even the folks sharing Wifi via their phone...).

Re: Deny winbox access via mac address on a port

I think via: IP - neighborhood - discovery settings: Use "!" + the ETH1 port BUT this means all other ports including WAN port can use it... Maybe not the best thing to do. Would rather define a list of interfaces, and use that list for access. always do: allow only what you need, rather than block ...

You can create as many SSID as you want on one, the advantage if it is on one AP that they are "synchronised" and actually no interference is created between them. The limit is overall frequency system capacity only. And the capacity is...

Hi SIB, Today I had again a couple of link downs after 25 minutes good LTE connection with the modem stuck on same problem as I described earlier (not using any cell lock or so). So my "workaround" did not really solves the issue. I might need to move back to my RB4011 and use external LTE router!!!

Re: Future of LTE products, user feedback requested

MKX,

The bands are defined in each country, and each carrier has different bands, frequencies out of it etc.
B28 is an official band in France, used a lot by one particular carrier, so its a valid request to have it
(in addition thanks to the low frequency this band has good range...)
