Re: help for a beginner

So somehow i made Slashdot front page today with my "Powerful Linux ISP Router Distribution" article and after everything is said and done, i realized that i just don't know RouterOS. Clearly the RB1000 gives the most performance per dollar in the entire industry with 400K pps, and RouterOS is fanta...

Re: Dual polarization antennas or two antennas in one unit

only thing grounded is a wire that goes from the mounting plate on the back of the ADI AE-1 enclosure to cold water ground at both locations. Maybe I should get actual grounding equipment? Lightning arrestors?

Any Suggestions?

Re: Dual polarization antennas or two antennas in one unit

Here's a shot of ADI AE-1 enclosure, Mikrotik RB600A, UbiQuiti SR71-15, a L-com 28.5 dBi Broadband Parabolic Dish Antenna, and an old Primestar roof mount. http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e279/rebelfaction/DSCF5165.jpg From the Front... http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e279/rebelfaction/DSCF5181....

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

Well i guess this is the end of the thread, everything is verified operational for the SR71-15, which is the repalcement for the abandoned SR71-5. A short link of 1/2 mile @ 100MBit TCP was established and verified by me, the CPU load never reached 100% on a pair of RB600A using ROS 4 b4 with SR71-1...

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

I don't agree with that. I find that even in weak signal situations, turbo is sometimes better than regular. You won't know until you try in each situation. I'm open to any info about how you get turbo to work better than regular, maybe i'm missing something? Maybe i should raise my noise floor lev...

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

OK i figured it out. In my settings on the alignment test, i had the "Filter MAC Address" set to the old XR5 MAC, changed to new SR71-15 MAC and everything works. Also, the HT Chain 0 or Chain 1 refers to the two antennas on the card. It may be desirable (duh) to use separate antennas for Tx and Rx ...

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

OK, so i know that ROS 4 b4 (Thanks again, Normis! :D ) is in beta, but i do need some help. * I can't use the align feature with SR71-15 ??? * My Tx/Rx CCQ is holding steady at 113/113 % ??? Now I did notice that i'm spending more time at higher bitrates than before. * P Throughput is at 23893 kbps...

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

Sorry i was dehydrated in 115 degree weather - im in the desert :D

Upgraded to ROS 4.0 beta 3... nothing

I mean, unless i'm missing something, the SUPPORTED Mikrotik r52n uses AR9220 - same as the UNSUPPORTED UbiQuiti SR71-15? Can someone say vendor lock-in?

Re: Public Static IP setup

So it's just one big bridge?

If you set static IP's at all locations can you ping each other?

Like x.x.x.1 at one place, x.x.x.2 at the next, x.x.x.3 at the last and you can ping .1 from all?

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

I'm gonna get a couple of these sr71-15 and test them with my dual polarized 28db dish link @ 2.6 miles

If this doesn't work, then i guess its back to ebay bargain hunting for old 100mbit Terabeam FSO equipment

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

Above question - YES

Without getting too specific, all N based equipment is backward compatible with wiffie equipment as long as the spectrum is supported. For example "N" based 5GHz will only support A stuff, and "N" based 2.4GHz will only support B/G stuff, but "N" based full will support A/B/G/N

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

Normis: I know that everyone wants something now, yet SR71-15 just isn't ready for use with Routerboards and Mikrotik. But perhaps we are asking the wrong questions. Are there any routing tricks (like Hierarchical Token Bucket or even better, HFSC), or perhaps a way to better utilise existing offeri...

Re: When Mikrotik support 11n mimo (SR71-5)

What about Ubiquiti's new SR71-15? I guess they scrapped the SR71-5 because of non-OSS practices of Mikrotik? Will there be support for the 15 anytime soon? I would look for an alternative, but Mikrotik's routerboards and routerOS are just too awesome!
