Both CPUs would use the same MikroTik x86 firmware - as would some others, as they are x86 architecture.

The problem would be more than just making a driver work on your specific CPU chip.
They would have to make/get a driver that would work on all x86 CPUs.

Re: Using The Dude on RB750G

You *can* run dude on it (i think) but you'll have to be very miserly wth things like Graphs (cos it stores the graph data).

Better to have something else, like an RB433UAH and buy a cheapo external USB hard drive.

The only problem i forsee is the issue of scaleability. If it's all contained inside the 1 router, what happens when you got 1000 users and multiple internet feeds ?

Re: Bundle 2 internet link when fully loaded ?!

3 mbps
You can't get the 3Mb/s delivered to any 1 customer, but if you use the PCC setup, the users will not congest the Total link capacity so much.

You also need to rate-limit the users to something less that the MAX speed you can get - 2mb/s in your case.
