Re: CSR3xx, HW-Offloading, Q-in-Q in 6.43

At first I was frustrated, but then I saw the funny side of it :) They only added the feature 3 weeks ago, we are probably the only people to test it. I would say everyone who tries to use this feature will give them the same feedback. I purchased a CRS317 specifically to test this feature and provi...

Re: CSR3xx, HW-Offloading, Q-in-Q in 6.43

It is not possible to tag SVID and CVID with 0x8100 on CRS3xx using 6.43, and Mikrotik support don't seem to believe me that this is the most common method for QinQ.

Please email support@mikrotik.com and let them know you need it too.

RB3011 has too many issues (USB & PCI voltage/current, Dropped packets when mix of 100/1000 ports in a switch group, non working HW crypto) and is too ugly

An RB4011 with modern ARM CPU (Armada or Octeon TX) in a CRS109/212 style case would be perfection!
