Re: v7.1beta2 [development] is released!

So announcement says CRS309-1G-8S+IN, CRS312-4C+8XG-RM, CRS326-24S+2Q+RM and CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+RM for L3 offload but CRS317 mentioned above as working.

I have CRS326-24G-2S+ (arm). Will it take advantage of L3 offloading? If so, what else will?

Re: Unable to modify TX power

OK - although I wasn't able to find it in winbox, I was able to change it in the terminal window

/interface wireless
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] antenna gain=0

The radio is now running at 30 dbm.

Unable to modify TX power

In the USA, in PTP UNII-1 allows a maximum EIRP of 53 db, and UNII-3 allows unlimited as long as radio gain is 30dbm. I used to get the radio power up by reducing the Antenna gain parameter to 0. The option to do that appears to have disappeared in radios with attached antennas. So while I'm here wi...

OSPF link with same subnets both ends

Looking at connecting two sites ptp. Going to use ospf because hopefully this is the first of many. Both sites are using 192.168.1.0/24 subnet for LAN.

I'm getting the same issues with a recently purchased 4011 with wifi. Running 6.46.4 firmware and software. Can't get through watching a movie without it rebooting. What's the RMA process on this these units?

6 GHz Band

The FCC is about to open up the 6 GHZ band - 5.925-7.125 GHz. Pretty much the same rules as the 5 GHz band. Obviously a big plus. Where is MT on support, and what will it look like? Combo 5 and 6 Ghz radio? New product, or firmware change to current product?

Re: EIRP USA

Response from MT support. "If you adjust the wireless configuration thew it is possible to use max Tx power without problems." What a horseshit reply. When you select regulatory domain, the expectation is that you are going to get the maximum allowed EIRP, not 25% of it. IMO, this shows a very lazy ...

Re: EIRP USA

5785/20-eC/ac(11dBm) So antenna gain is set to 19. MT reduces the output power to keep the EIRP to 30 dbm, 6 db below the FCC limit. Additionally, changing to PTP mode still leaves it at 11 db. It appears that to get the legal limit afforded by the FCC in the USA, you need to reduce the MT assigned ...

Re: EIRP USA

More curious issues. The Dynadish 5 has antenna gain 25dBi, and if you look at the transmitted power, its choked back to 5dBm. Thats a total EIRP of 30 dBm. But the FCC allows 36 dBm EIRP for the worst case PTMP applications, and a minimum of 53dBm for PTP. Why does Mikrotik reduce EIRP 6dBm below t...

Re: Compare United States wireless country settings [SOLVED]

So I'm confused - what's new? Is the 30dBm EIRP? Or transmit power? Because the rules state "Several of the FCC part 15 rules govern the transmit power permitted in the ISM bands. Here is a summary of those rules: Maximum transmitter output power, fed into the antenna, is 30 dBm (1 watt). Maximum Ef...

I see the lowest setting for antenna gain is 0, so 52dBm. The other question is whether these MT devices will operate at 200 watts reliably for an extended period?

This was the response I received from MT.

So to interpret this to mean that to get 53 dBm EIRP usi...

In the USA, max EIRP is "Maximum transmitter output power, fed into the antenna, is 30 dBm (1 watt). Maximum Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) is 36 dBm (4 watt). You can obtain the EIRP by simply adding the transmit output power, in dBm, to the antenna gain in dBi (if there is loss in the c...
