I had a client Mikrotik that would stay associated but, lose service between 7:00 A.M. and come back daily at 9:00a.m. I thought maybe interference at clients location. I moved the client to different location different client, same results cards can do funny things. I am not saying this is your iss...

Router OS RIP

This may sound stupid but, we recently implemented RIP on all of our Mikrotik AP's and backhauls. We were using all static routing before. Now it seems like our network struggles. Maybe coincedence but, after RIP was installed, we had a backhaul get fried and many other physical problems. Does anyon...

Re: RB192 and RB333

Hi Normis

What is the R52H card you referred to? Is it an upgrade to the normal R52 cards? I haven't seen anything on them at routerboard.com.

Re, G
http://routerboard.com/prices.html#permlink29
it's a high power card

R52H is a 350 milliwatt card vs the previous model with only 65 milliwatt.

Question

Is it a bad idea to run a back haul and an AP on the same router board?The wireless card for back haul is a XR5, the AP is R52H, and Rb532a. Some people believe its better to have two separate dedicated devices. Any suggestions?

I have one AP that I tried this on. I hide the SSID and try and apply the default authentication. I have also saved my clients to an access list. When I try to un check default authentication it will save, but only one or two of my clients will register. I have approximately 12 clients on this AP. I...
