WISP looking to add Audience to existing customers

Hello, We have customers using wireless RB4011 routers and we want to further extend wireless coverage throughout their building. Of course, we have customers using other Mikrotik's as their "main" router as well. So, what is the best way to connect the RB4011 wirelessly to an Audience that we will ...

Re: Request: Dual Band WiFi in Consumer Routers

this is SO BADLY NEEDED - keep it simple. Why does Mikrotik continue to lose router sales for us, when nearly every $ 100+ router from Best buy has dual-band?

Re: Short Range - High Bandwidth Backhaul

Looking at your first post, I am thinking that the reason you use seperate RB333 boards for each radio is for maximum throughput through the board.

On your second post, you mention using an RB450, but they have no slots for cards?

Thank you !

Since we have a Tik at every tower, does it make sense to use it as a caching server to speed things up a little bit?

If so, how much of the resources will it use, say on a 532 or 600? Is there a parameter to specify how much memory or resources go to it?
