Thanks for the response. After posting, I did a search on "Prism" and found a number of people saying the same thing, including my friend Sam here in Oklahoma, who tried to do the same thing I did, with the same results. Like Sam, I am really surprised that Mikrotik released 2.9 as "stable" with the...

2.9/Prism AP problems

I recently upgraded an AP from another OS/SBC solution to a RB500 with 2.9. With both SBC's, I used a Senao/Prism 200mw minipci 802.11b card for the AP. I had one Atheros card in the other solution for the backhaul and two Atheros cards in the RB500 for backhaul. After upgrading to the RB500, I expe...

Removed wireless package - now cannot reinstall it

I removed the wireless package from my RB500 running 2.9. I planned on trying the wireless legacy package, but it would not install, since it is made for an intel box, not the RB. Now I cannot reinstall the regular wireless package for the Routerboard because it is not available on the website. The ...

Client IP address on main Reg. Table page

Would it be possible to put the IP address of the client on the main page of the registration table, instead of having to click on the client listing to find it? This is a hassle when you are doing tech support, trying to find the connection of the particular client. I thought I remember seeing this...

Re: Very Exciting

We are having great success with the VIA EPIA M800 motherboard for small spaces. It has one full size PCI slot that you can put whatever you need in. We have one that has one of the 4 port ethernet cards, and another that at one time had one of the 4 port PCI to miniPCI boards in it. With that and ...

Problems with Prism in Beta

When using the v2.9beta14 and Prism cards in the AP mode, a significant minority of my wireless customers would not connect. I downgraded to 2.824 and the problem went away. Has anyone else experienced this problem, or is there a fix to it?

I have not done it myself, but seem to remember reading a post on this or another forum where someone was saying he was successfully running WDS on a Senao CB3 and a Mikrotik Router.

I don't think you will be able to bridge with a non-WDS AP. The only possibility would be to do Ethernet over IP from your local Routerboard to another MT router on upstream somewhere.

DS3 PCI cards that work for Mikrotik

Does anyone have a source for DS3 PCI cards that work with Mikrotik? A guy posted something on the mailing list a number of months ago that he had some for $200, but he did not respond to my recent email.
