High Temperatures and MicroSD

I know the 450G high temperature issue has been discussed before. My experience is yes it runs hot - but seems operationally stable. According to the routerboard (you can telnet in to the temperature sensor) it runs at a consistent 70 to 71C. It is in a rack in an air conditioned room. I see no temp...

Re: RB493

Can more than 1 switch be created on a rb493? Example, can 2-5 be one switch, and 6-8 be a different switch? Or, can only one switch be created on a rb493?

I'm glad the product is now shipping.

Re: New products at Egypt MUM?

I'm replying to bump this to the top.

How about an update from Mikrotik? RB600 news? RB1000? RB411? It has been totally silent since MUM....

I'm looking forward to an update.

Re: Xtreme Range2 802.11b/g 600 mW mini-PCI

XR2 performs good but not as expected.. Noise floor is the highest (-99dbm) on the XR2.. Where usually I have -92...

-99 is LESS noise than -92, not more.

Yeah, I saw that. But I still have the same questions, and it would be great if you could sum it up:

What is the advantage of the XR2 vs an SR2 on 802.11b, or 802.11g?

The receive specs are the same? If so...is it just the 600mw vs 400mw (about 1.5db I'd guess).

Hi Mike from Ubiquiti. Thank you for making great products like the SR2 - the SR2 with Mikrotik is a great combination.

Have you tried running the SR2 on B only? This may seem counter-intuative - but I have had better results keeping hotspots forced to 802.11b only. I'm using the SR2 card at most locations with great results.

Use a MikroTik RouterBoard in an outdoor chassis - mount it with the antenna. Then - you will have a short coax run of just about 1 or 2 meters, and the 90 meter ethernet cable run to the RouterBoard won't matter. Running 2 Ghz or 5 Ghz signals through 90 meters of coax cable will NOT work well.
