Re: RouterOS v4.3 released

Hi Guys
I setup a test environment inside today between two alix outdoor aps. It seems the 4.3 Nsteam is really buggy. If i enable nstreme and setup the bandwidth test between two end points the link is up and down every 30 seconds. Remove nstreme and it is stable.

We have just come across the exact same issue using a wyse terminal with windows xp embedded. Hotspot resolves through dns lookup but fails in the browser. A simple host entry fixes the problem. What worries me is all the road warriors that may have this issue without us knowing about it.

Also how do you test if they are making the distance and that there is a good signal strength
